Hydrocyclone Illustration

Test render depicting the use of a hydrocyclone to separate denser large particles to lighter smaller particles.

The smaller particles escape through the over pressure area in the vortex of the centrifugal forces; the underpressure drops the larger particles through the bottom.

Hydrocyclones are used to separate sand particles from sludges, and are integral to soil washing processes.
