Cyclones are seldom used anymore as a primary source of filtration (except for coarse and large non-dusty particles). However cyclones still have a strong presence in industry as pre-separators.
Cyclone pre-separators can dramatically reduce loading on dust collector filters, and the waste collected from the cyclones can often be recycled back into the process.
Polex Environmental Engineering has recently developed a range of cyclone dust collectors / pre-separators to satisfy this market. Depending on the dust type, Polex is fabricating the cyclones using Galvanised mild steel (fully welded) or Stainless steel (grade 304 or 316). Polex’s cyclones are being offered with their existing range of dust collectors, scrubbers, fans, rotary valves, spraybooths and ducting.
