Building a Cyclone Separator

cyclone separators or simply cyclones are separation devices that use the principle of inertia to remove particulate matter from flue gases. [2] Cyclone separators are part of a group of air pollution control devices known as precleaners as they are generally used to roughly remove larger pieces of particulate matter. This prevents more fine filtration methods from having to deal with large, more abrasive particles later one. As well, several cyclone separators can operate in parallel, and when this is set up the system is known as a multicyclone. [3]

It is important to note that cyclones can vary drastically in their size. The size of the cyclone depends largely on how much flue gas must be filtered, and thus larger operations tend to need larger cyclones. For example, several different models of one cyclone type can exist, and the sizes can range from a relatively small 1. 2-1. 5 meters tall (about 4-5 feet) to around 9 meters or about 30 feet (which is about as tall as a three story building! ). [4]

In a cyclone separator, dirty flue gas is fed into a chamber. Inside this chamber exists a spiral vortex, similar to a tornado. This spiral formation and the separation is shown in Figure 2. The lighter components of this gas have less inertia, so it is easier for them to be influenced by the vortex and travel up it. Unlike these particles, larger components of particulate matter have more inertia and are not as easily influenced by the vortex. [2]
