Cyclone Separator for Powder Processes

 

A Cyclone Separator captures excess dust from powder processes (e.g. tablet press, capsule filling machine). It has no filters and no moving parts and, instead, uses cyclone technology to separate solid particles from the air.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Cyclone Separator uses its geometry to separate the solid extracted material from the airstream. This vortex separation causes solid particles to hit the outside wall of the cyclone, de-accelerate and fall to the catch-pot at the base of the cyclone. The clean air then passes downstream to the dust extraction source. As a result, filters in the central extraction system are not blinded and clogged up with material.

 

1. Particles hit the wall of the cyclone, decelerate and separate from the air stream.

 

2. Particles fall under gravity towards catch-pot at the base of the cyclone.

 

3. Clean air passes to extraction source.

 

4. Captured particles in the catch-pot are removed for batch loss reconciliation, disposal or reintroduction to the process (subject to QA and validation).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Installing the Cyclone Separator

 

Excess powder is usually extracted to a central extraction system or vacuum cleaner. Cyclones can collect the waste powder before it leaves the process room; therefore allowing for high integrity batch reconciliation.

 

They are specifically designed to be compatible with the standard airflows of compression and encapsulation machines. So, they can be easily retrofitted to your existing dust extraction line or supplied with a dedicated vacuum source.

 

All models of the Uni-Dust cyclone have been assessed by a notified body as ATEX / ex-proof exempt; therefore, it can be used safely in environments up to ATEX Zone 0/20 or Class 1 Div 1.
