In cyclone separators, the material, which is permeated by air as a carrier, is set into rotational motion by its own flow speed and appropriate design of the separator. The centrifugal forces acting on the particles accelerate them radially outwards.
At the outer wall, the particles in the air stream lose their kinetic energy due to friction and drop down into the collecting area. The cleaned air stream is discharged centrally upwards by means of an immersion pipe.
A dust collection system is an air quality improvement system used in industrial, commercial, and home production shops to improve breathable air quality and safety by removing particulate matter from the air and environment. Dust collection systems work on the basic formula of capture, convey and collect.
First, the dust must be captured. This is accomplished with devices such as capture hoods to catch dust at its source of origin. Many times, the machine producing the dust will have a port to which a duct can be directly attached.
