In 1891, E. Bretney patented the first hydrocyclone, and from this time through 1948, a large number of patents continued to be granted on this technology. In 1939, Dutch State Mines was the first company that utilized hydrocyclone technology as a means of both cleaning coal and dewatering sand.
Hydrocyclones are used for desliming, dewatering and sizing a variety of products, including sand, construction aggregates and industrial minerals. Containing no moving parts, these machines are relatively straightforward. Here are five things you need to know about Hydrocylcones.
Heavier plastic components can be separated from the polyolefin, which is the desired material of a film washing line. A further advantage of the hydrocyclone separation step is the high amount of water present in the water circuit, ensuring together with the revolving forces arising due to the hydrocyclone a very good washing result of the films.
McLanahan Agricultural Hydrocyclones are based on patented technology used for separating, dewatering and desliming aggregates and minerals for more than 40 years. They were first introduced to the agricultural industry in 2002 to provide fine sand removal as a second step in the sand manure separation process.
HYDROCYCLONES By Richard A. Arterburn For many years, hydrocyclones, commonly referred to as cyclones, have been extensively utilized in the classification of particles in comminution circuits. The practical range of classification for cyclones is 40 microns to 400 microns, with some remote applications as fine as 5 microns or as coarse as 1000 ...
