Separators used in pneumatic solids transport systems and their minimum particle size.
In a pneumatic transport system, solids like dust, flour, sugar, sand and many other products, are transported in a high speed air flow.
The table below can be used to indicate minimum particle size recommended for different types of separators.
|Separator Principle||Minimum Particle Size|
|Centrifugal, large diameter cyclone||40-60|
|Centrifugal, small diameter cyclone||20-30|
- 1 micron = 0.001 mm
