Multicyclone Demister

In applying centrifugal force to separation, the separator size is determined by the flow capacity, among other factors.

However, the amount of separating force that can be generated at a given rotational velocity decreases as the separator diameter increases.

The result is that larger, higher-capacity centrifugal monotube units are less efficient than smaller ones for removing small-entrained mist droplets. Multicyclone separators use this principle.

In Multicyclone Demister, the flowstream is processed through a bank of parallel reverse-flow or axial flow cyclone demister tubes, each tube taking a fraction of the flow.

Each tube keeps a small diameter to maintain high separation efficiency.
