Cyclone separator

Centrifugal force separator for powder recovery.

Cyclone separator
A cyclone is a centrifugal force separator and essentially consists of three parts: The intake cylinder, the cone and the immersion tube. In the intake cylinder, the air/particle mixture is brought into a circular path by means of tangential injection. Due to the taper of the subsequent cone, the speed of rotation increases sharply, so that the particles are pressed by centrifugal force against the outer wall and decelerated by friction, causing them to drop out of the air current and fall down. The cleaned air leaves the cone in an upward direction via the central immersion tube.
