Dear all,

I have this new project designing powder cyclone. As you all know the fuction of this cylone is to separate smaller particle between large particle.
Basicly this cyclone use air flow to separate the particle, is there any relationship between particle size and the flow rate of the air
how about the shape of the cone, is it critical or not
where do i have to start to design this cyclone. what kind of data do i need?
A journal will help me to design this cyclone.
Thank you very much.

Best regards,
David

Perry's Chemical Engineers' Handbook has some detailed design considerations for several types of cyclone separators. I myself recently built one to separate steam from boiling salt water, and it works well, achieving steam purity of around ten parts per million.
