Hydrocyclone structure, installation and material


The hydrocyclone is a vessel container with cylinder part, the cylinder part of upper cone is mud inlet room; the outboard install a tangential stock inlet; the underpart of cone is open mouth, the size of caliber is adjustable, use for discharging the solid particles. There is a down inserted overflow pipe on the top centre of close vertical cylinder, and extend to below the stock inlet tangent location. The structure is constituted by cylinder, subuliform tank, mud inlet pipe, overflow pipe, sand settling tube, etc.



Most hydrocyclone, if without regard to inner diameter of stock inlet, the working performance will be best at the 23m pressure head. In market, some new cones structure may be need different pressure head, user must verify whether the centrifugal pump can provide suitable pressure to hydrocyclone manifold. When installing sand pump, should ensured less bend and T pipeline, the suction line should be the shortest length, guarantee friction loss is minimal.



In general, the shell of hydrocyclone is made of cast iron. For improving the wear-resisting property, the inside uses the wear-resisting rubber. For improving the service life further, shells of some hydrocyclones use the polyurethane, both wear and corrosion resistance. About the large-sized hydrocyclone, the shell use the material of alufer, interior use the polyurethane, this not only ensure shell have enough strength, and reduced the weight.
