Engineered for Strength and Effectiveness
A US Systems Cyclone uses vortex separation to remove particles from air. Air and material discharges into the cyclone at a high speed from a pneumatic conveying system. The material drags downward in a spiral along the walls by gravity as the air flows upward toward the cyclone outlet.
Cyclone efficiency depends on the shape of the Cyclone, proportions and the mechanical forces these introduce on the airstream and airborne particles. A US Systems cyclone is designed for optimal efficiency.
Cyclones can be made from stainless steel, aluminum, or painted carbon steel. We can easily custom-engineer the perfect solution for your material and conveying needs.
Here are two cyclone separators ready for shipment to a carpet mill in Georgia, where they are used for plastic pellets. Notice the blow-through adapter bolted onto the small vessel below the cyclone for shipping purposes. At the plant a rotary airlock was installed between them and the customer is happy to have their material running smoothly for many years and many more to come.
