Hydrocyclones and Packed Vessels

SWECO Hydrocyclone Systems provide an economical and effective method for removing solid particles in the 4 to 100+ micron range from various slurries. Hydrocyclones typically make finer separations than are practical with screening separators and at significantly higher capacities. In many applications cyclones can be used in place of decanter centrifuges, providing the desired result at lower cost.

Hydrocyclones are supplied in either an open-manifold or a Packed-Vessel configuration. Manifolds (radial or linear orientation) utilize 2-, 4-, 5-, or 10-inch diameter cyclones while Packed Vessels contain either 1- or 2-inch diameter cyclones. Both configurations can process feed rates from 10 to 3,000 gallons per minute, depending on the size and number of hydrocyclones installed in the system.

Tough emissions regulations set forth by the IMO make exhaust gas scrubbers very important to both new build ships and retrofits. In addition to sulfur reduction, these regulations regulate the turbidity and hydrocarbon content of seawater returned to the oceans. SWECO Packed Vessel Hydrocyclone Systems remove most particles larger than 10 microns, and help reduce the hydrocarbon content. The use of hydrocyclones can lower the capital, operating and maintenance costs of a solids-separation system.
