Vapour Handling

Cyclone Separator

A cyclone separator, used to separate particles from a vapour stream based on their size, density, and centrifugal force. It operates on the principle of creating a swirling vortex motion that causes particles to be thrown outward, while the clean vapour flows in a more central path.

A typical cyclone separator consists of a cylindrical and conical-shaped vessel with an inlet for the vapour stream, an outlet for the clean vapour, and a drain for the separated particles. Inside the vessel, there is a tangential inlet that induces a cyclonic motion to the incoming stream.
