Horizontal Hydro-Cyclone Separator

The Parnaby Horizontal Hydro-Cyclone Separator is used in fines coal recovery plants and can recover particles of 0.5mm

Larger plants may include banks of cyclones operating together. The water-only cyclone operates in exactly the same way as a natural medium cyclone.

Within the cyclones the small particles are separated by centrifugal and vortex action (the cyclone itself does not move).

The water/particle mixture is pumped into the side of the cyclone tangentially and swirls around creating a vortex in which the lighter particles are drawn to the middle and out to a dewatering screen.

The heavier particles are thrown by centrifugal force to the wall of the cyclone and are discharged at the opposite end.

The horizontal hydro-cyclone separator can be used alone or in a system. Larger plants may include banks of cyclones operating together.

Cyclone-only plants are suitable for the cleaning of small material of less than 50mm particle size.
