Hydrocyclones for classification, separation and coal cleaning
A hydrocyclone, also known simply as a cyclone, is a centrifugal device with no moving parts. It can be used to concentrate slurries, classify solids in liquid suspensions, degrit liquids, and for washing or cleaning solids. A hydrocyclone can perform ultrafine separations and handle large-volume feed streams with high solids loading.
Cyclones frequently are used as an efficient and effective means to protect or pre-treat material, to improve the performance or decrease the cost of downstream equipment, such as centrifuges, filters, and screens. Cyclones are also used in conjunction with thickeners, clarifiers, and strainers.
As a leading manufacturer of hydrocyclone classification equipment for the process industries since 1952, we have applied decades of successful pioneering in separation, classification and dewatering technology. We are proud of our unsurpassed reputation around the globe for technical expertise, quality products, and customer service. We offer unique capabilities for problem solving in such diverse fields as aggregates, chemicals, alumina, hard rock mining, coal mining, oil and gas, pulp and paper, pollution control, power generation, water, and wastewater.
We can provide individual hydrocyclones, as well as entire multi-unit hydrocyclone clusters that can be supplied with valves, piping, collectors, support structures, instrumentation, and other accessories. Our experienced engineers work with you to address your specific process challenges, and ensure the correct equipment selection.
We also offer our SmartCyclone™ as a monitoring and control solution for reducing cyclone-related process upsets, improving cyclone overflow particle size distribution, and predicting and controlling cyclone maintenance schedules.
