Hydrocyclone

Hydrocyclone Introduction

The hydrocyclone is a device to classify, separate or sort particles in a liquid suspension based on the ratio of their centripetal force to fluid resistance. It is often used to separate "heavies" from a liquid mixture originating at a centrifugal pump or some other continuous source of pressurized liquid.

Hydrocyclone has been widely applied for closed circuit grinding and classification system, thickening, desliming, dewatering, tailings filling, damming, recovery processes in ferrous, nonferrous metal and nonmetal mine industries, and is deeply popular with customers due to high classification efficiency, simple structure, large throughput, and small occupied area.

Hydrocyclone Features

  1. Finer, sharper particle separations at high capacities
  2. Fewer cyclones needed for optimal performance
  3. Available in sizes ranging from 2 to 33 inch in diameter with 1 inch thick replaceable liners
  4. Operates at higher feed densities at the same separation size
  5. Operates at lower cyclone inlet pressure
  6. Can be retrofitted into existing installations
