The Effect of the Outlet Geometry on the Velocity

The Effect of the Outlet Geometry on the Velocity Profiles of Hydrocyclones. February 2020; Project: Computational Fluid DynamicsComputational Fluid Dynamics

Measurements of mean velocity profiles in a

A quantitative study of the axial and tangential components of the mean velocity in a 3″-hydrocyclone using laser doppler anemometry has revealed multiple reverse flows in the vortex core. Flow visualization by dye injection shows that these flows are coherent over a significant portion of the hydrocyclone and that little radial mixing occurs between these secondary flows and the outer

Fluid flow model of the hydrocyclone: an investigation

1992-6-1  Five hydrocyclones were the subject of this study, and in each case the velocity profiles of the fluid were measured by an LDV. The measured and predicted velocity profiles agree closely throughout each of the units. In addition, the analysis of the measured velocity profiles sheds new light on the effects of variations in hydrocyclone dimensions.

A 2 Model of the Flow in Hydrocyclones COMSOL

2014-11-20  Swirling flows in hydrocyclones From experimental works (LDV) we know that the flow in a hydrocyclone (conical and flat bottom) has the following properties: velocity profiles of v z and v are not completely axisymmetric v z,v,and their RMS values z and,only change their magnitude with pressure p v z changes with z

Velocity measurements in a cylindrical hydrocyclone

2004-5-1  Mih and Parker (1967) introduced a self-cleaning purge impact probe that was designed to measure pipe velocity profiles of a fiber suspension. The probe had a great accuracy but needed a reference static pressure in the pipe to give the velocity. In a hydrocyclone this would be impossible since the static pressure gradients are very large in the radial direction.

Flow patterns in conical and cylindrical hydrocyclones

2000-12-1  The velocity profiles of conical hydrocyclones were measured first by Kelsall and more recently a number of authors reported their measurements using laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) (Fanglu and Wenzhen,Hsieh and Rajamani,Schummer et al. ). Only a few studies have been carried out to determine the flow pattern of cylindrical hydrocyclones.

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 decanting centrifuges, providing the desired result at lower cost. Hydrocyclones are supplied in either an open-manifold or a Packed-Vessel configuration.
