The discharge setting of the balanced cyclone

Most cyclones are of balanced design. A well-regulated, balanced cyclone has an "umbrella" discharge at the underflow outlet and a central air column. Many balance cyclones are adjustable, so when pressure is applied to the cyclones, there is no discharge at the bottom. Conversely, when coarse particles are added to the input drilling fluid, wet particles will be discharged from the bottom.

Even with good adjustment, there should still be a large opening at the bottom of the cyclone. This will ensure the hydraulic balance of the cyclone and only when the particles that can be removed by the cyclone are fed into the drilling fluid will they be discharged from the bottom (underflow port).

A balanced cyclone should operate with an "umbrella" discharge. During this process, the coarse particles are discharged downward along the spiral line and pass through the bottom outlet in a hollow form. The bottom is actually an overflow or sluice, not a shutoff or valve.

The high-speed reflux spinning rotates upwards near the center of the centrifugal cone and enters the vortex duct, creating a low-pressure cylinder space, which sucks air inward through the center of the bottom flow port.


In order to balance the installed centrifugal cone, slowly open the bottom to discharge when circulating water passes through the centrifugal cone. When a small amount of water is discharged and the central air column is about the same diameter as the opening, it is considered that the centrifugal cone is balanced.
