Hydrocyclone

Hydrocyclone

A hydrocyclone separates particles in a liquid suspension basing on the ratio of their centripetal force to fluid resistance. Hydrocyclones can also separate liquids of different densities.

The mixture is injected into the device tangentially as to create the vortex and then the centrifugal acceleration causes the dispersed phase to move away from or towards the central core of the vortex (depending upon the relative densities of two phases).
