Hydrocyclones, otherwise referred to as cyclones, are mechanical separation devices that utilize centripetal or centrifugal forces within a vortex in order to sort particles present within a liquid suspension.

When feed slurry enters the hydrocyclone under pressure that creates high centrifugal forces, particles coarser than the “cut point” size migrate into a primary vortex adjacent to the wall and move forward to discharge with a small volume of water via the spigot.
Particles finer than the “cut point” size migrate into a secondary upward-moving vortex, along the axis of the hydrocyclone and discharge with the majority of the water.
Hydrocyclones are limited in being able to dewater fine solids to a conveyable state Dewatering Screens are used to further dewater Hydrocyclone underflow.

Dewatering and Solids Separation
Solids Separation Systems
Dewatering and separating solids in tight confines and those who require a faster dewatering and separation solution, we build out an integrated system to fit your space requirements.
This offers you the opportunity to dewater to a greater level your slurry and make a cake that is easier to transport and less costly to dispose of.
Remove solids from your slurry stream with the simple physics of Hydrocyclones. This is a high speed option to separate your water from solids.
Shale Shakers and Shaker Screens
Immediately remove large solids and dewater from your slurry stream as part of your separation process.
