The cyclone is a great pneumatic system that separates certain material or tiny particles from the flow of air when it reaches the destination in an efficient manner. If the material that is to be separated is of consistency or weight that is suitable for cyclonic separation, a cyclone is a very suitable option. The cyclone does not have any moving parts or filters to clean. No plant air or electricity is required for its operation. A cyclone will be suitable in a case where you are moving 60 to 6,000 CFM [100 to 10,000 m3/hr] of air.
The cyclone by Coperion K-Tron is suitable for conveying clean granular materials or for the functions where total separation is not necessary. The cyclonic separation of material from the air allows the material to get discharged from the bottom of the machine while the conveying air passes out from the top. Cyclones are effective filterless pneumatic receivers when the material is suitable for this kind of separation.
The Coperion SZ, SZS cyclone separators have the best quality design. It is unique and made according to the principle “Form follows function”.
The product needs to have appropriate properties for the Cyclones to be efficient in material separation. Their design allows dust separation from conveyed air at the end of a pneumatic conveying system.
Listed below are the various benefits of the Cyclones
- The cyclone is configured in such a manner so that it accelerates the natural separation of material from the air.
- The cyclone does not require moving parts or a filter to clean. Even plant air or electric supply is not needed for its operation.
- Cyclones have proven to be the most efficient filterless pneumatic receivers.
- Filters by Coperion K-Tron are available in aluminum, stainless steel, painted steel, and wear-resistant surfaces.
