Cyclones

Quick Links

Multotec has revolutionised the mineral processing industry with its range of cyclones that all feature its leading scrolled evolute design – the heart of the Multotec range.

Our scrolled evolute design achieves higher capacities (industry tested!) and reduced wear rates than regular inlets.

Our industry leading range of cyclones offers maximum separation efficiency and lower running costs, and is backed by our extensive application knowledge of the global mineral processing industry.

New field testing and cyclone design has resulted in a variety of cyclones that are lighter, more cost-effective, environmentally-friendly and encompass power-saving features.

We have also developed the CY-i suite of cyclone sizing and selection software that drastically reduces your downtime. Read about CY-I here.

Features of our cyclone range:

  • Made from high quality rubber, ceramics and polyurethane compounds
  • Customised cyclone designs according to your unique specifications 
  • Designed for both fine and accurate cut-points
  • Reduced misplacement of product
  • Abrasion and heat resistant materials that reduce wear  
  • High temperature and chemical resistant for harsh applications 
  • Maintenance and operating manuals are included with all new units excluding replacement units 

Multotec has revolutionised cyclone design with its scrolled evolute inlet head designs. Click here to fill out the form and contact us today.

 

Through extensive testing and simulations, Multotec has proven that both the scrolled evolute and ribbon inlet designs have a higher capacity when compared to standard inlet designs. These designs substantially reduce vortex finder wear, thereby reducing operating costs while maximising cyclone efficiency.

Advantages of our scrolled evolute inlet head include:

  • Maximum efficiency of separation
  • Reduced misplacement of product
  • Cost effective beneficiation solutions 
  • Superiority of cyclone design confirmed by Computational Fluid Dynamic Analysis
  • Field tested in real conditions
  • Minimised turbulence 
  • Reduction in wear rates - especially on the vortex finder
  • Overall operating costs are reduced
  • Reduced energy consumption
