Low Pressure Cyclone Design Theory

Paul Kaspar, Calvin B. Parnell, Jr.


The utilization of new cyclone design methodology has resulted in the development of a 1D-2D cyclone design with a 2D-2D inlet, a 1D-3D outlet, an enlarged dust outlet of D/2, and a larger outlet tube diameter of D/1.6. This design has exceeded preliminary goals of a maximum 2.5" w.g. pressure drip and minimum 80% collection efficiency as a fine dust collector and as a fine dust/trash collector. This design may facilitate the need for an improved air abatement device for the first-stage lint cleaner.
