The cyclone dust collector is one kind of mechanical dust collector. The dust removal equipment is not limited by the dust concentration. According to the dust concentration, the dust particle thickness can be used as the first stage dust removal or multi-stage dust removal. Widely used in various industrial and mining enterprises, workshops, construction sites, it has good effect in metallurgy, casting, crushing, sandblasting, tunnel operations, cement, building materials, chemical, food, refractory materials.
How it works
Cyclone dust collectors are often referred to as two-stage dust collectors because, unlike traditional dust collectors, cyclones have two collection points for dust and debris. The primary collection point is for the heavier chips and debris, while the second collection point is for finer particulate matter. Cyclone dust collectors utilize centrifugal force as the primary means of particle separation. The airflow transitions into a downward spiral or centrifugal vortex as soon as it enters into a cyclone dust collector. This action forces the larger particles from the airstream into the first collection point, while the finer particles move with the airflow on to the second stage filter element. The particles that are captured by the filter are then collected in a secondary collection point.
Various Benefits of Cyclone Collector
There are several benefits of cyclone dust collectors that have contributed to their popularity over the years. The following are a few of them:
Requires No Expensive Filters: It is seen that most dust collectors utilize expensive filters, which need regular maintenance or replacements. However, cyclone dust collectors use centrifugal force to eliminate or remove particles from the airstream. Thus, these dust collectors are a brilliant choice for areas exposed to high levels of dust, contaminants, and airborne irritants.
Safe Design: The two-stage dust collectors are considered safer than most other dust collectors. Why? It is often seen that a huge cloud of dust is released when the collection bag of a dust collector is cleaned. However, debris and heavier chips are released when the primary collection point of the cyclone dust collector is cleaned.
Maintenance Free: Cleaning the filters or bag houses in industrial workplaces is not easy. These filters or bag houses are taken to isolated areas for cleaning. Most companies outsource this task to third-party contractors to ensure the process is smoothly performed. Also, the costs of filter replacements are high, which when added to the costs of third-party services may make a negative impact on the company’s budget. In this scenario, using a cyclone dust collector, which is low on maintenance, is an economical option.
Recovery of Materials: In several industries, the dust collected in the dust collector may comprise gold or silver dust. This is reused or recycled, owing to its financial value. In such cases, using a standard filter is not recommendable because the material may get lost in filters, whereas cyclone dust collectors use no filters, and the collected valuable materials can be recovered through the discharge valve.
