Ceramic Lined Cyclones (MAX)

Multotec’s MAX range of ceramic lined cyclones provides the ultimate in wear resistance with its alumina tiled cyclone engineering design. Computational Fluid Dynamic Analysis, 3D computer aided design and extensive field testing are all combined to create Multotec’s MAX cyclone design.

Ceramic lined cyclones couple the highly efficient Multotec scrolled evolute inlet design with an engineered tile wear surface that ensures maximum efficiency of separation and improved wear life.

The MAX range of cyclones is a result of the combination of the specialised technological expertise and experience of two of Multotec’s specialities, mineral processing equipment and wear resistant linings.

With various inlet and vortex finder diameters available, a single cyclone diameter can accommodate a wide range of tonnages and sinks yields.

Ceramic engineered tiles for long-lasting performance in abrasive applications:

Regular cyclones utilise hand-cut standard pressed tiles. However, this results in gaps between the tiles, and the epoxies used to bond the tiles wear rapidly. As wear progresses, the tile surface becomes increasingly uneven, resulting in accelerated wear.

Multotec’s engineered tiles are pressed with chamfered sides and then cut precisely, whilst in the green state, to the required shape. This ensures that gaps between the tiles are minimised. Each tile is specifically designed for its place in the complete tile kit, ensuring a very tight fit with minimum space at the joints. Tile widths are selected to provide a smooth internal surface. The end result is a long lasting wear surface.
