Hydrocyclones are simple mechanical devices, without moving parts, designed to speed up the settling process of solids.

Drilling fluid containing solids is fed tangentially into the body of the hydrocyclone, where centrifugal force induced by the flow causes heavier solids to separate from lighter solids. The heaviest solids are discharged out the bottom (underflow) of the hydrocyclone and the lightest solids exit the top (overflow). 


The separation of solids is dependent upon feed particle size, fluid viscosity, fluid feed pressure (as a function of fluid density) and hydrocyclone size. 


DC Machinery manufactures hydrocyclones in China. Hydrocyclones are typically configured to meet the specifications demanded by the application. Usually, the desired flow rate determines the configuration of the cones, including the size utilized. Hydrocyclones are just one of the many solids control and waste management offerings that DC Machinery supplies to the oil and gas industry.
