HYDROCYCLONE

Hydrocyclone.jpg

Deoiler Hydrocyclones convert pressure energy into centrifugal forces to separate oil from water:

  • Pressure forces water into each Hydrocyclone Liner

  • Involute (Tangential) inlet creates spiral flow pattern

  • Reducing taper accelerates spinning of liquids

  • Spinning creates centrifugal forces which multiply the density difference between Oil & Water

  • Oil droplets are forced to the lower pressure central core

  • Water flows out of Cyclone, regulated by backpressure

  • Back pressure forces Oil out central orifice (oil reject)
