What is Hydrocyclone?
“A hydrocyclone (often referred to by the shortened form hydroclone or cyclone) is a device to classify, separate or sort particles in a liquid suspension based on the ratio of their centripetal force to fluid resistance.
This ratio is high for dense (where separation by density is required) and coarse (where separation by size is required) particles, and low for light and fine particles.
A Hydrocyclone is a high-throughput gravity separation device used for separating slurry particles based on particle weight. For example, particles of similar size but different specific gravity, or particles of different size but identical specific gravity.
This density-based separation device that uses fluid pressure to generate centrifugal forces and a fluid pattern. It is used to separate solid particles from a liquid or mixture medium. Hydrocyclones may be prone to corrosion and wear and tear due to regular operations.” Know more @ tftpumps.com
