hydrocyclone classification according to density

Classification by Hydrocyclones - Minerallurgy

The classical theory of hydrocyclone states that orbiting particles within the flow pattern are subjected to two opposing forces – an outward centrifugal force and an inward drag force, see Figure 4. The centrifugal force accelerates the settling rate or the particles such that it separates particles according to size, shape and density.

Optimization of hydrocyclone classification by on-line ...

2018-5-29  The hydrocyclone is an important device used in mineral processing beneficiation circuits for classification of mineral slurries by particle size. It separates a single input stream into two output streams; an underflow of coarse particles that undergo additional grinding for further size reduction, and an overflow stream of finer particles that typically goes directly into a flotation circuit for recovery of the desired mineral. However the hydrocyclone is a major piece of equipment in the beneficiation process that has no instrumentation for directly measuring its performance. The parameters currently measured – inlet pressure, feed flow rate, feed flow density – are common to the entire hydrocyclone cluster which typically has three to twelve hydrocyclones. Thus no information is available to detect individual hydrocyclones
