In this study, through simulation and experimental verification, we proposed a novel hydrocyclone in which a tubular ceramic membrane passed through the overflow outlet to the underflow outlet. The centers of overflow and underflow outlets were tubular membranes equipped with an exit of outside-in filtration, and the overflow the underflow outlets were shaped into annular (donut shape) exits.

Nov 14, 2007· Hydrocyclones are simple and robust separation devices with no moving parts. In the past few years, their use in animal cell separation has been proposed. In this work, the use of different hydrocyclone configurations for Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell separation was investigated following an experimental design.
Hydrocyclone, as the core part of the downhole oil/water separation (DOWS) system, has been used for a long time. But some issues restricted it from extensive and long term utilization in terms of reinjection in the same oil well, offshore oil production and so on.

Fig. 5 shows the configuration of the overall experimental setup used, including various components such as a centrifugal pump, storage tank, agitator, pressure gauges, valves and the hydrocyclone separator. Liquid was pumped to the hydrocyclone by a centrifugal pump, and between the tank and the centrifugal pump was a gate valve V1.
This paper presents a numerical simulation and experimental study on a solid-liquid hydrocyclone. In the simulation, the standard k-ε turbulence model and the zero-equation model are employed to compute the flow field of the two phases in the hydrocyclone under different conditions, such as viscosity of the liquid, particle size and flow rate.
Oil/Water Separation in Liquid/Liquid Hydrocyclones (LLHC) An extensive experimental program has been conducted using a 2-in. hydrocyclone. The inlet flow conditions are: total flow rates between 18 to 27 GPM, oil-cut up to 10%, median droplet size distributions from 30 to 180 µm, and inlet pressures between 60 and 90 psia.
The experimental setup mainly comprises a hydro- P1 cyclone, centrifugal pump and collection and supply tank. Fig. 1. Experimental setup. The hydrocyclone is of mild steel of cylindro-conical struc- ture having a cyclone diameter of 0:24 m. The length of the cylindrical portion is 0:3 m and that of the conical portion is 0:74 m.

separation efficiency in hydrocyclone separator has some discrepancy from experimental result. It is because air core influence is not considered in this study. KeyWords: Hydrocyclone, CFD, DPM, RSM 1. Introduction Hydrocyclones have been used for mineral process-ing for more than 100 years. Nowadays hydrocyclones
A hydrocyclone is a static device that applies centrifugal force to a flowing liquid mixture so as to promote the separation of heavy and light components. The classic hydrocyclone is a closed vessel designed to convert incoming liquid velocity into rotary motion.
hydrocyclone. The separation part is the hydrocyclone to realize the separation of oil-water two phase. The auxiliary part includes the motor, the coupling and the stationary outer cylinder etc., the structure is shown in Fig. (2). In the process of the experiment, the hydrocyclone ro-tates around its own axis by the motor driven, the oil-water
Hydrocyclones are ideal for recovering down to 400 mesh (38µm) particles of 2.7 SG. This is typically done in the form of an Ultra Fines Recovery system comprised of a Sump, Pump, Cyclones and Dewatering Screen, which will have a discharge to waste nominally 90% passing 400 mesh (38µm) and a product discharging the screen in a drip-free, readily conveyable and stackable form.
separation, although this parameter is often held constant once properly established. Two methods for metering the success of hydrocyclone separations were implemented; partition curves, and an experimental design. The proper use of a partition curve allows for easy and understandable graphic representation of a hydrocyclone separation.
