A cyclone is a simple dust extractor. Its operation relies on centrifugal force, causing solid particles in the air to move downwards while the purified air exits from the top of the cyclone. Cyclones are primarily used as pre-separators to enhance the efficiency of the main filters. To ensure optimal performance, the air must be dry, and the particles to be separated must be non-adhesive. Cyclones are typically manufactured from 2–3 mm thick steel sheets, with a colour shade of RAL 7004 for standard deliveries. When ordering a cyclone, the direction of the inlet flow needs to be specified. We also manufacture cyclones from stainless or acid-resistant steel.

Cyclones often require an inlet adapter to convert the square inlet into a form that can be connected to a circular pipe line. The connection can be made using either a band or flange connection.

The discharge of the cyclone’s exhaust air is directed upward using a discharge diffuser to prevent contamination of the ceiling. The discharge diffuser is equipped with a funnel to collect rainwater, which can be removed via a hose. The discharge diffuser is provided according to the customer’s preference with either a flange connection or a quick-release fastening. If cyclones are installed outdoors, a rain cap is also provided to prevent water from entering the cyclone.
