hydrocylones are designed for separating solids from liquids and are successfully used in a broad range of industrial and environmental applications. new uses are continually being discovered as engineers and project supervisors become familiar with the hydrocyclones’ versatility in liquid/solids separation classification and concentration.
solids are directed to the underflow. the result is a process with a retention time of typically 2 to 3 seconds. hydrocyclones provide simple and effective means of achieving effective separation of solids and sand from produced and other water streams. for removing solids from a production system desanders can be utilized either upstream or
hydrocyclone frequently asked questions. hydrocyclones and centrifuges are complementary rather than competing devices. if gravity alone will settle a significant portion of your solids in a minute or two using a quick bottle test you should investigate hydrocyclone separation. if settling takes much longer than this then you may need a
some specific applications: sand and silt removal or separation drilling fluids solids removal catalyst removal and soil washing. hydrocyclones use the centrifugal separation principle to remove or classify suspended solids in a slurry. the vorspin hydrocyclone features three improvements in hydrocyclone efficiency: a volute feed inlet
hydrocyclones. hydrocyclones or more simply cyclones and variations such as mclanahan separators™ are used in a variety of applications including classification desliming fines recovery densifying and dewatering. they can be used in industries such as sand aggregates coal industrial minerals hard rock mining and more.
