Tag Archives: High Efficiency Hydrocyclone

The high efficiency liquid hydrocyclone provides maximum oil/water separation efficiency, and the solid/liquid hydrocyclone is a cyclone clarifier that offers continuous solids removal from liquid. Both can be used in industrial process water, industrial reuse, oil/water separation, and clarification/separation applications.


Based on the centrifugal principle, the particles are spun agaainst the outside wall of the hydrocyclone and gravitate towards the bottom into the sedimentation tank. The velocity at which the water flows through the hydrocyclone determines the efficiency at which the particles are separated from the water.


Features and Benefits:

Compact design with no moving parts.
Operation at turndown ratios from 5:1 to 15:1.
A stable oil core that allows for higher removal, reducing or eliminating the need for emulsion breaking chemicals.
Liners that feature twin inlet ports for superior hydraulic stability.
Materials of construction that provide superior erosion and corrosion resistance for longer design life.


How to install it:

1. Install and connect the hydrocyclone vertically with the sedimentation tank underneath the hydrocyclone.
2. Special attention must be given to the correct flow direction: horizontal inlet and top vertical outlet are clearly marked by arrows.
3. Install the manual ball valve to the flush port of the sedimentation tank.
4. Check that the actual flow rate through the hydrocyclone is within the recommended range. Inadequate flow rate will result in reduced performance.
5. If more than one hydrocyclone is installed, leave sufficient space between units to facilitate maintenance.
6. Specially designed manifolds are available for mounting multiple filters.
7. A pressure relief valve must be installed upstream of the hydrocyclone if the pressure is not controlled effectively.
