Cyclone is a basic device used for separation of smaller and fine size particles. A hydrocyclone is cyclone that uses water as a bulk fluid. During the operation a back flow of air can occur which results in the formation of an air core. The air core is removed by inserting a rod length from bottom to tip of the vortex of the hydrocyclone. An experimental study has been attempted to study the effects of air core on total flow rate and split. The work presents to compare the total flow rate and split between a conventional hydrocyclone and a modified hydrocyclone in which the air core is replaced by an aluminum rod insert.
