Cyclones and multicyclones
Rodrigue Métal LTEE
The cyclone and the multi-cyclone use centrifugal action as the basis of operation. The particle-laden air enters the cyclone through a tangent intake. The centrifugal action projects the particles against the cylinder wall, thereby causing a descending spin motion that forces the particles out. As for the air, it is evacuated to the central chimney created by the difference in internal pressure of the cyclone.
