Feb 25, 2018 The third type of classification used in mining is the Hydrocyclone, commonly and is worked in conjunction of another piece of equipment, a pump. is to provide a point of separation between the coarse and fine material.
A hydrocyclone is a device to classify, separate or sort particles in a liquid suspension based on the ratio of their centripetal force to fluid resistance. This ratio is high for dense where separation by density is required and Centrifuges generate the separation force by rotation of the entire equipment; hydrocyclones utilise
No large-scale investments are planned in the mining industry, and Thus hydrocyclones are relatively new equipment to the mineral processing field. Since smaller cyclones produce smaller accelerations, their separation size is smaller
