Cyclone Separator Working Principle

Filson cyclone separator is a method of removing particulate from air, gas, or liquid stream through vortex separation. When removing particulate matter from fluid, Filson hydrocyclone separator is used; while from gas, Filson gas cyclone separator is recommended.

Filson cyclone separator can be installed as a single unit, or in multiples, called multi-cyclones, it is also possible to install cyclones in series or in parallel. And Filson cyclone separators are also available in horizontal and vertical configuration.

Filson cyclone separator is carefully engineered to eliminate large and abrasion particulate matter from fluid or gas with an efficiency up to 99%. The efficiency of Filson cyclone separator varies largely depending on particles size, particles density.

Filson cyclone separator are commonly built to control and remove particulate matter that is larger than 5 micron in diameter. However, there do exist high efficiency cyclones that are designed to be effective on particles as small as 2.5 micron. As well, these separators are not effective on extremely large particulate matter.

Filson cyclone separator is generally made of carbon steel with powder coating which is corrosion resisting and anti-rusting, so it has long service life. Besides, Filson cyclone separator can be processed into different shapes and size.

Filson cyclone separator is simply composed of a cylindrical vessel with a conical base. A tangential intake and a fluid outflow are located in the upper section of the vessel, while a solid exit is located at the bottom.

The working principle of Filson cyclone separator is that the rotational motion caused by tangential introduction of the air flow keeps the solid particles or droplets with a large inertial centrifugal force away from the internal wall.

In detail, Filson cyclone separator works like a centrifugal, but with a continuous feed of dirt air. In a cyclone separator, dirty flue gas is fed into a chamber, the inside of chamber create a spiral vortex, similar to a tornado.

The reason for separation is that the mass of the particles varies, the inertia varies. The lighter components of this gas have less inertia, so it is more susceptible to vortex and move upwards. Contrarily, larger particulate matter have more inertia and are not easily influenced by the vortex.

Industrial High Efficiency Cyclone Separator

As a result, relatively clean gas or fluid is released from the top of Filson cyclone separator, while particulate matter separated by centrifugal force away from the internal wall and fall down on the wall, finally discharged from the collection container at the bottom.

Filson cyclone separators are featured with simple structure, no moving parts, low costs, convenient operation and maintenance and less space requirements. That is the reason why Filson cyclone separator is so widespread used.

However, the limitation of a cyclone separator is not able to collect particulate smaller than 10 micron effectively and not suitable for handling tacky fluid or dust with large moisture content and corrosive dust well.

Cyclone Separator FAQ:

What is a Cyclone Separator?

A cyclone separator, also known as a cyclonic dust collector, is a widely used air pollution control device that cleanses flues gases of particulate matter before such gases release into the atmosphere. It is a method of collecting up 99% of airborne waste by Filson cyclone separator.

Filson cyclone separators are primarily used as a pre-filters, as they are instrumental in removing large and abrasion particles from flue gases, and then undergo an additional filtration processes to remove the fine particulates matter.

The relevance of Filson cyclone separator lies in the fact that they facilitate the first step of flue gas filtration process. The purpose of Filson cyclone separator is to minimize air pollution and environmental hazards caused by production plants exhaust.

How a Cyclone Separator Works?

Typically, air is supplied tangentially at a very high velocity into solid-gas suspensions to cause rotating movement within Filson cyclone separator body. The centrifugal force caused by the increased air velocity in the vortex plays a crucial role in the separation process.

Due to the rotatory flow of Filson cyclone separator, the particulate matter are separated from the air stream by the centrifugal force. And solid particles are hurled against the wall. Finally falling to the conical base and being released through the solid outlet.

When air reaches the bottom of cone, it starts to flow radially inwards as clean air/gas. The fluid (gas) is discharged from the top’s central outlet, while the particulates falls into the cyclone’s dust collection chamber.

The efficiency of Filson cyclone separator varies depending on density, particle size, and cyclone design. Increases in particle size or density, intake duct velocity, cyclone vessel length and other factors contribute to the cyclone efficiency.

How does a Cyclone Dust Separator Work?

Filson cyclone dust separator works similarly to a cyclone separator. The airflow that brings in the dust and larger particles into the unit (Filson cyclone dust separator vessel) where the cyclonic air movement spins it. Filson cyclone dust separator begin their work by creating an vortex.

Particles of different mass have different inertia. The lighter components of this gas have less inertia, so it is more susceptible to vortex and move upwards. Instead, larger particulate matter have more inertia and are not easily influenced by the vortex.

During these process, particles rotation creates a centrifugal force, the centrifugal force bangs it against the wall of the chamber. That slows the movement of dust particles such that they drop down into a collection bin .

With the development of technology, Filson cyclone dust separator can effectively separate dust particles larger than 10 micron with an efficiency up to 99%. It varies depending on the particles size, density and separation medium.

Does a Cyclone Separator Work?

Yes, of course. Filson cyclone separator can work either single or multiple cyclone, it is also possible to install cyclones in series or in parallel.

What is Cyclone Separate Used for?

In general, Filson cyclone separator is used as a pre-cleaners to lighten heavy dust loads before being sent to the next bag filter. Filson gas cyclone separator is specially designed for removing solid particles from the gas stream, while Filson hydrocyclone separator is used for separating fluids of different density.

  • Used to separated the suspensions of solid particles in gas stream or fluid, also used with liquid suspension of solid
  • Used in the production of activated pharmaceutical ingredients(API) through dying systems such as spray or fluid bed dying
  • Used for the separation of particulates based upon size, specific gravity, porosity, and concentration from solid, fluid and gases
  • Used for the separation of fine particles from coarse granules in the pharmaceutical industry
  • Used to extract waste powder before it reaches the central extraction system(tablet compression cyclone)
  • Used to produce particle-free clean air in air-handling system
  • Used to separate oil from water or dewater from oil in the oil and chemical industry
What is the Principle of Cyclone Separator?

The working principle of Filson cyclone separator is utilizing centrifugal force to separate solids from the fluids(liquid, air or gas). The separation efficiency depends on the density and size of the particles, cyclone design.

Filson cyclone separator is a unique solution to remove all types of coarse and large particles and allow fine particles to be carried through with the fluid. A vortex generated in the cyclone vessel converts the inertia force of fluids into a centrifugal force.

The air-carrying particulate matter is driven along the tangential axis of Filson cyclone separator. In the chamber, a spiral flow pattern is created. Owing to the centrifugal force, these particulates will migrate to the exterior of the chamber.

Gravity pulls them down to the bottom of Filson cyclone separator. While gas phase reverse its axial direction of flow and exits through the vortex generator, the gathered particles are allowed to discharge through an underflow pipe. The air rises to the top of the cyclone from the center.

Where Cyclone Separators are used?

Overall, Filson cyclone separators are widely applied to metallurgy industry, casting process, chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, mining industry, cement industry and other industry.
