In dust cyclone separator the principle of centrifugal action is used to separate particulates from the gas stream.
Dust laden gases are given a swirl by means of a tangential inlet & centrifugal force resulting thereby throws the particles on the walls of the cyclone.
The dust thus separated is then collected in hopper.
Various factors like particle size, density, diameter of cyclone & velocity of the gases at the inlet of the cyclone governs the performance of the equipment.
These cyclones are suitable for high temperature and high volume dust.
