Hydrocyclones first appeared in dutch in the late 1800s, Hidrociclon is an equipment that uses rotary current to classify, separate or sort coarse particles of sewage. It widely used in mine processing such as aggregates, hard rock mining, sand, industrial minerals, coal and more. Because the equipment without moving parts, take up small areas, process high volumes and relatively cheap.
Hydrocyclone based process systems are the most cost effective solution for produced water treatment clean up. Located directly downstream on the water outlet of the production separator and upstream of the water level control valve, these systems operate in a proportional pressure ratio control manner.
Hydrocyclone Systems A hydrocyclone is a static device that applies centrifugal force to a liquid mixture so as to promote the separation of heavy and light components. In Hydrocyclones, also known as liquid cyclones, the principle employed is centrifugal sedimentation, i.e., the particles in the suspension are subjected to centrifugal forces ...
Hydrocyclones are ideal for recovering down to 400 mesh particles of 2.7 SG. This is typically done in the form of an Ultra Fines Recovery system comprised of a Sump, Pump, Cyclones and Dewatering Screen, which will have a discharge to waste nominally 90% passing 400 mesh and a product discharging the screen in a drip free, readily conveyable and stackable form.
Water Treatment ; Hydrocyclones A fully integrated system for removing clay and other suspended material from plant water in order to recycle water in a closed circuit system, mainly in the preparation of sands and aggregates in quarries.
Hydrocyclones are very widely used for high throughput coarse/fine particle separation in the mineral processing industry using a vortex effect, or simply slurry dewatering. They dont suffer from the rate limiting steps of the alternatives: Sedimentation settling: rate limiting step is the sedimentation rate.
