Cyclones

$0.00

These cyclones are designed for the separation not only of droplets from gases and vapors but also of particulate solids from gases. The overall degree of separation can be as high as 99%, but this figure is governed to a large extent by the following factors:

  • Liquid loading of the gas or vapor.

  • Solids loading of the gas.

  • Droplet or particle size range.

  • Droplet or particle size distribution.

The following are examples of limiting droplet diameters for the standard air/water system (at ambient temperature) with a velocity in the dip pipe of 15 m/sec:

  •  Approx. 2.5 m for the CY 4 and CY 6 cyclones.

  •  Approx. 3.5 m for the CY 9 and CY 12 cyclones.

The pressure drop in these cases is in the region of 250 to 300 mm water gauge.

The complete cyclone consists of:
1 glass body
1 dip pipe
1 coupling with gasket
