Krishna, Ch. Hari and Rao, P Srinivasa and Singh, P V Gopal (2006) Studies on the Performance of Air Cyclone Separator for Removal of Particulate Matter. In: Proceedings of the International Seminar on Mineral Processing Technology and Indo-Korean Workshop on Resource Recycling (MPT-2006), March 8-10, 2006, NML, Chennai.
Emissions from industries and air pollution from these emissions adversely affects the environment and public health. For instance, India depends largely on coal for its power generation. The problem with Indian coal is that it carries a lot of dust with it. Hence, dust carried along with the flue gases has to be separated before sending the gases for further treatment. Cyclone separa-tor, bag filter and electrostatic precipitator have found applications in technological use. ESP demands high voltage (power requirements) whereas general bag filters cannot work beyond 120C. However, cyclone separators have less temperature and pressure limitations and requires low pressure drop. Hence, cyclone separators are usually selected to separate dust from fluid streams.
