What is the best cyclone type?

In addition to focussing on the separation task, the main emphasis of various Wolftechnik research and development projects was to improve the retention rates of the cyclones. At the same time, it was intended to increase the throughput capacity. The classical approach is to set up several hydro-cyclones in-parallel Infeeding is by means of a central main pipe. Each of the hydro-cyclones is controlled at the same pressure and speed; this is necessary to force the same separation rate.
However, several hydro-cyclones can be accommodated in one container. This is referred to as a multi-cyclone. Comparing the cyclone variants in a test system for throughput capacity to differential pressure yielded interesting results.
