For more in-depth analysis, the operation of hydrocyclones can be captured by three-dimensionless groups, namely the Stokes, Euler, and Reynolds numbers, as indicated in Eqns, ; . In these equations, the velocity v v is the mean axial velocity in the body of the hydrocyclone, i.e., the ratio of the volumetric flow to the cross-sectional area of ...
Request PDF on ResearchGate Numerical Study of Particle−Fluid Flow in a Hydrocyclone This paper presents a numerical study of the gas-powder-liquid flow in a standard hydrocyclone. In the approach, the turbulent fluid flow is described by the Reynolds stress model, the interface between the liquid and air core is modeled using
Cyclones can handle flow rates ranging from 3 gpm to over 10,000 gpm. Small-diameter cyclones may be manifolded to handle larger flow rates with higher efficiency. Cyclones can also be placed in series to handle streams with irregular particle sizes or with particles that tend to flocculate .
