MP 400 CYCLONE SEPARATOR
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The equipment is for studying the principle of two phase flow using a centrifugal blower.

Powder material is fed by an agitator and a variable speed screw feeder to a Venturi tube. The material is carried by air in the tube to a cyclone where the velocity is reduced and the material is separated and dropped to the bottom.

Instruction manual is also included.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Velocity profile of air in the transfer tube using a travelling Pitot.
  • Observation of material separation in the cyclone.
  • Comparison of theoretical expression with test results for pressure loss and material collection efficiency at each air velocity.
