Hydrocyclone Systems can provide an economical and effective method for removal of solid particles in the sizes range of 4 to 100+ micron from various liquids with high load of solids in a slurry stage.
Hydrocyclone typically makes finer separations than practically possible with screening methods and at significantly higher capacities of flow.
In many applications Hydrocyclone can also be used in place of Decanter Centrifuges, providing the desired result at a much lower cost.
In many cases, it eliminates the need of costly and space and energy consuming scrappers to separate the solids from DAF or IAF systems.
Because of lower solid to water ratio in the separated slurry from a Hydrocyclone System, any need of a filter press is also sized down thereby saving further capital.
In the cases where compostable organics are higher in percentage in the slurry, we recommend composting of the sludge slurry to save cost and add value to output.
Hydrocyclone System is supplied in either an open-manifold for lower flow requirements (as shown here) or in a Packed-Vessel configuration for higher flow demand.
Packed Vessels contain number of cyclones according to flow demand.
Packed Vessel configurations can process feed rates from 10 to 3,000 gallons per minute, depending on the number of hydrocyclone installed in the system.
