Tailings Dam Cyclone

Tailings Dam Cyclones (GV Cyclones)

Multotec GV cyclones are designed specifically for tailings dam applications. They are engineered to ensure the optimum volumetric split between overflow and underflow is achieved to match the required rate of rise of your tailings dam – cost-effectively, reliably and with simple maintenance.

The optimum Tailings Dam Cyclone:

  • Multotec scrolled evolute design
  • 220 mm ID, with options of a 10° or 20° cone angle
  • Lightweight construction (just 45 kg) means ease of handling
  • Different spigot and vortex finder sizes provides optimum flexibility
  • The spigot can be easily and effortlessly changed via a unique spigot holder design
  • Reduced cone wall thickness reduces weight and cost
  • Composite construction, incl. a lightweight steel shell and polyurethane and rubber components
  • Variety of installation options, from simple wall mounting to skid mounted installations

Multotec GV cyclones are available across the world through your local Multotec branch or distributor. In addition to providing the complete range of spares and components for your cyclones, our engineers support you with complete engineering and aftersales service.

Metal spun lower cones

To further reduce the weight and the cost of the GV cyclone, the cone wall thickness has been reduced by making use of metal spinning. This still has sufficient robustness for the application. Metal spinning also helped to make the unit more cost effective, and cones of similar manufacture may be used on our HC range, as they are interchangeable.

Flexibility to match your process requirements

Designed to match varying application and commodity requirements by interchanging the cone angle, spigot and vortex finder makes the Multotec GV cyclone a fit-for-purpose product. Altering the combination of the cone angle, spigot and vortex finder allows you to meet the specific operational parameters of your material characteristics and tailings dam requirements.

As each cyclone is designed for individual applications, feed parameters are matched to cyclone capacity, ultimately optimising the cyclones lifespan. Multotec can also build completely bespoke solutions should your application require it.

Cyclone weight optimisation

The GV range cyclones are developed with lightness in mind, enabling dam operators to move these units more easily. We have optimised our cyclone weight even more by modifying the vortex finder reinforcement and other components, further reducing the weight by up to 5 kg.
