Cyclone System In Dust & Waste Gas Treatment

Cyclone and Multi-Cyclone Technology

What is a cyclone system?

A cyclone system is a technology widely used in dust and flue gas treatment. It is a system designed to separate large sized dust particles and solids from a flue gas stream using the principle of centrifugal force. A cyclone system is typically used to remove dust particles ranging in size from a few micrometers to several tens of micrometers.

Working principle of cyclone system

  1. Exhaust Gas Reception: The exhaust gas stream contains dust particles and solids that are introduced into the exhaust gas dust treatment system.
  2. Centrifugal force generation: The exhaust gas is fed into a centrifuge device, usually a centrifuge tube or a centrifugal fan. This device creates a strong rotating orbit, exerting centrifugal force on dust particles and solids present in the exhaust gas.
  3. Separation effect: With the action of centrifugal force, the heavier dust particles and solids will be pushed away from the rotating axis and move in the direction away from the exhaust airflow. Meanwhile, the exhaust gas has been separated the dust particles and solids will continue to move through the next treatment system.
  4. Solids collection: The separated dust particles and solids will be collected and stored in a separate collection system. Devices such as filters or collection systems can be used to collect this solid from the exhaust stream.

What does the cyclone system consist of?

The cyclone system consists of the following components:
  • Cyclone shell: Is the peripheral part of the cyclone device, which is in the shape of a circular cylinder or cone. The cyclone shell has the role of guiding the exhaust gas flow in a spiral orbit to create centrifugal force.
  • Spindle: Placed in the center of the cyclone, the spindle helps create a helical orbit for exhaust airflow.
  • Inlet and outlet system: The inlet is used to deliver the dust-containing exhaust into the cyclone, while the outlet is used to drain the exhaust that has been separated from the system.
  • Collection system: For large cyclone systems, there may be a collection system to collect and store separated dust particles.

Reviews of the cyclone system:

Advantages of cyclone system:
  • Simple and easy to operate.
  • Does not require a lot of energy or additives to operate.
  • High dust separation efficiency for large size particles.
  • No moving parts are damaged or need regular maintenance.
Limitations of cyclone system:
  • Dust separation efficiency is significantly reduced with smaller sized particles.
  • It is not possible to handle small nano-sized liquids or particles.
  • Large area is needed to provide spiral orbit for exhaust airflow, so wide and suitable installation space is required.
