Hydrocyclone It is a very important classification equipment in mineral processing, and can also be used for concentration and dehydration. Its working principle is that under the action of centrifugal force and gravity, coarse particles rotate to the wall and finally form sand particles. The smaller particles move up with the flow direction of liquid and then overflow. If hydrocyclone can not be used correctly in mine, it will directly affect its working efficiency. Under normal conditions, the factors affecting the working efficiency of hydrocyclone mainly include the following aspects.
1. Diameter of Hydrocyclone
The diameter of hydrocyclone has an important influence on its working condition. The larger the diameter of hydrocyclone, the larger the production capacity and separation granularity.
2. Cone angle of Hydrocyclone
The working efficiency of hydrocyclone decreases with the increase of cyclone cone angle, because the larger the cone angle is, the greater the resistance is, which will affect its production capacity.
3. Diameter of cyclone feed pipe
The diameter of the feed pipe of hydrocyclone has influence on its processing capacity and classification efficiency. Generally, the larger the diameter of the feed pipe, the greater the processing capacity.
4. Diameter and wall thickness of overflow pipe
When the inlet pressure is constant, the overflow pipe diameter and wall thickness of hydrocyclone are directly proportional to its production capacity.
5. Shape and size of feed inlet
Generally, the shape of the inlet of hydrocyclone can be divided into two types: circular and rectangular. At the entrance of the tower section, the feed inlet converts the linear motion of liquid flow into circular motion. Therefore, the shape and size of the inlet of hydrocyclone directly affect its production capacity and separation efficiency.
6. Cyclone bottom diameter
The larger the diameter of the bottom opening of hydrocyclone is, the finer the grading particle size is, but its production capacity increases with the increase of bottom outlet diameter.
