HYDROCYCLONES


Hydrocyclone is a device to classify/separate or sort particles in a liquid suspension based on the densities of the particles. Hydrocyclone may be used to separate solids from liquids or to separate liquids of different density. Hydrocyclone will normally have a cylindrical section at the top where liquid is being fed , and a base. The angle, and hence length of the conical section, plays a role in determining operating characteristics.

CYCLONES:

Designed to accommodate cyclones from 40mm to 900mm. isolation valves provided to enablecyclones to be isolated for maintenance or operational reasons.

MATERIAL OF CONSTRUCTION:

Cyclones are available in a wide range of materials depending on cyclone diameter, top size and material being treated.


POLYURETHANE:

A special abrasion resistant polyurethane which under certain conditions can give three times more life than rubber.


CAST IRON :

A 27% high chrome cast iron which provides excellent abrasion resistance for most applications


SILICON CARBIDE:

Liners manufactured from nitride bonded silicon carbide which provides superior abrasion resistance for softer and smaller particle applications.

ALUMINA:

Engineered alumina tiles with 94% alumina which is suited to coarse particle high wearing applications.

HYBRID ALUMINA AND CAST IRON:

Used in alumina lined cyclones where tramp metal is present. The cone sections are supplied in high chrome cast iron which is better suited to handling tramp metal.

HIGH-EFFICIENCY INLET DESIGNS:

The heart of the orithane cyclone range. Through extension testing and simulations. Orithane process equipment’s has proven that both the scrolled evolute and ribbon inlet designs have a higher capacity when compared to other inlet designs. These designs substantially reduce vortex finder wear, thereby reducing operating costs whilst maximizing cyclone efficiency.

GENERAL FEATURES:


LIGHTWEIGHT OVERFLOW ELBOW:

Overflow elbows are made from an abrasion-resistant polymer. That is lightweight, Requires no corrosion protection and is cost-effective a rubber/urethane sleeve is fitted to reduce wear at the vortex finder discharge.

VORTEX FINDERS:

The scrolled evolute and ribbon inlet designs reduce vortex finder wear to the degree that polyurethane or rubber lined vortex finders can be used cost-effectively.

ALUMINA:

Engineered alumina tiles with 94% alumina which is suited to coarse particle high wearing applications.

LOOSE LINERS:

All wetter surface are lined with 15 or 25mm thick loose replaceable rubber liners. Which have up to three times more life than conventional liners. This reduces operating costs. Maintenance and stock holdings, alternative liners. Such as polyurethane and silicon carbides, are available. For extremely abrasive applications housings lined with 25mm alumina tiles can be supplied.

WEEP HOLES PREVENT DAMAGE TO HOUSINGS:

Outer housings are fitted with weep holes located in the highest wear areas. Slurry dripping from the weep holes gives an early indication that the liner needs replacing. Preventing housing wear. HC and HR cyclones incorporate mild steel shell housings. While PC cyclones incorporate lightweight. Rust-resistant, fiber-reinforced composite housings.

SPIGOT:

The spigot is housed in a light weight holder. The design of which enables easy inspection or replacement of the spigot. Inserts are available in polyurethane or silicon carbide.

CYCLONE DISTRIBUTORS:

We offer distributors for larger, multiple cyclone operations. These assembles have been designed to ensure optimum cyclone operation and are extremely compact.
