DESLIMING OF FINE COAL WHAT IS THE CORRECT CYCLONE?

In literature the cyclone cut point refers to that particle size that has a 50% change of either reporting to underflow or to overflow. In many instances it has become clear that the definition of cyclone cut point has been misunderstood by either the supplier or client which then leads to the desliming cyclone not performing adequately.

Cyclonic separation

Cyclonic separation is a method of removing particulates from an air, gas or liquid stream, without the use of filters, through vortex separation. When removing particulate matter from liquid, a hydrocyclone is used; while from gas, a gas cyclone is used. Rotational effects and gravity are used to separate mixtures of solids and fluids. The method can also be used to separate fine droplets of ...
