Cyclone Scrubber Solutions
Cyclone scrubbers can be used as part of an incineration system as a dust particle removal system. A cyclone scrubber must be specifically designed to meet the specific needs of the waste stream and the off gas produced to ensure optimum operation. A cyclone functions through a process called vortex separation, when the rotational effects and gravity are used to separate mixtures of solids from a gaseous emission stream.
The process requires high speed rotational air, typically derived from the incinerators combustion air system, however draft induced fans can be used to drag the gasses through the cyclone. Rotation of the gas is established directing the off-gas into a cylindrical container, subsequently the air flow forms a helix. As the air flow travels down the cylinder the heavier dust particles are forced to the edges of the helix because of the rotational forces. Heavier dust particles strike the cylinder walls they have too much inertia and fall to the bottom of the cylinder from where they are collected and removed.
The bottom of the cylinder is tapered to speed up air flow, increase the strike rate and to encourage a low pressure zone where the air flow will travel up and out of the cyclone once it has reached the base of the helix.
