    OverviewDesignUsesSee also

    A hydrocyclone is a classifier that has two exits on the axis: one on the bottom (underflow or reject) and one at the top (overflow or accept). The underflow is generally the denser or coarser fraction, while the overflow is the lighter or finer fraction. It has no moving parts and its operation depends on two major parameters: • The characteristics of the feed stream.

    Important early work in the development of the liquid/liquid hydrocyclone occurred in the late 70's and early 80's by Martin Thew and Derek Coleman at Southampton University and at this stage test work indicated that the minimum nominal size of a hydrocyclone would be about 28 mm. It was thought that any further reductions of the nominal size of a liquid/liquid hydrocyclone would generate high ...
