Need a customised cyclone?

Multotec has a wide range of standard cyclone solutions ranging from units of 25 to 1 450 mm diameter in various grades and materials of construction. Our cyclones are selected and sized by an experienced process team to best suit clients’ needs.

Should you need a tailored cyclone for specialised applications, Multotec can custom design and manufacture a cyclone to your precise requirements.

The innovation at the heart of the Multotec cyclone range:

Multotec has revolutionised the mineral processing industry with its range of cyclones that feature the innovative scrolled evolute design.

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

New HDPE Cyclone Overflow Elbows

Multotec has recently addressed customers’ requests in aggressive milling applications for longer-lasting overflow elbows with its new innovation: completely rubber-lined HDPE overflow elbows.

Traditionally, the wear on overflow elbows was very localised and easily prevented by the inclusion of a rubber overflow elbow sleeve. The 6 mm rubber sleeve was designed to fit inside the overflow elbow, just above the outlet of the inlet head. However in aggressive applications the wear point is exaggerated and therefore made the rubber sleeve less effective. Due to the HDPE manufacturing constraints, a longer sleeve cannot be fitted throughout the length of the overflow elbow.

However, this constraint is now a thing of the past thanks to Multotec’s new innovation. By rubber-lining the entire HDPE elbow, the overall operating life of the overflow elbow is now extended.

The fully rubber-lined elbows are lined with 6 mm thick natural rubber for all cyclone sizes up to 750 mm diameter. All cyclone sizes larger than 750 mm diameter will be lined with 10 mm thick natural rubber.

Multotec will still offer the unlined HDPE elbow and accompanying rubber sleeve for clients, as standard.
