Abstract:

THE PRESENT PROPOSAL INVESTIGATES A NOVEL CYCLON WHICH IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A NEARLY CONSTANT EFFICIENCY IN A BROAD RANGE OF FEED RATE VARIATIONS. THE RESULTED IMPROVEMENT WOULD ELIMINATE THE MOST UNDESIRABLE FEATURE IN THE EXISTING CYCLONE SEPARATORS, NAMELY THEIR DEFFICIENCYIN SEPARATION PERFORMANCE AT OFF-DESIGN FEED RATES. THE PROPOSED CYCLONE SEPARATOR INCLUDES A SPRING LOADED MOVEABLEEND PLATE THAT AUTOMATICALLY ADJUSTS THE INLET FLOW AREA IN RESPONSE TO FEED FLOW VARIATIONS TO MAINTAIN A NEARLY CONSTANT CENTRIFUGAL HEAD, AND THEREBY A NEARLY CONSTANT SEPARATION EFFICIENCY. THE ANTICIPATED RESULT IS A LOW COST ALTERNATIVE DESIGN WHICH WOUL\D PROVIDE SAVINGS BOTH FOR ORIGINAL CAPITAL INVESTMENT AND FOR OPERATING EXPENSES THOUGH PROCESS SIMPLICATION AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY.
