Cyclone system is a system for separating polluting particles and dust from air, liquids, and vapors. Instead of using filtration systems, the cyclone system uses a rotating flow to separate the pollutant particles. The cyclone system separates the different phases of liquids, solids, and gases using air rotation and gravity. In other words, using centrifugal force causes the separation of different phases from each other.
Use of cyclone system in a vacuum cleaner
Vacuum cleaners equipped with cyclone systems are widely used in various industries. From cleaning furnaces to vacuuming factory surfaces and collecting high-precision environmental particles, these are all examples of using a cyclone vacuum cleaner.
Cyclone vacuum cleaners are designed to effectively remove particles and dust from the air. Because these vacuum cleaners collect and separate particles in two stages, they are called two-stage vacuum cleaners. The first step is separation, for larger particles, and the next step is for smaller particles. In these vacuum cleaners, the use of an air rotation system separates particles from the air stream. This flow rotates from top to bottom. In the beginning, heavier particles and at the end of the rotation path, smaller particles are separated from the air stream and exit the cyclone. Finally, the airflow is sucked from the bottom to the top and the air leaves the cyclone without excess particles.
Advantages of using the Cyclone system in an industrial vacuum cleaner
When emptying the waste tank from a conventional vacuum cleaner, the particles may stick to the filter and when emptied, they are separated from it and spread in the environment. But with a cyclone system, fewer particles reach the filter due to step separation. Therefore, with the cyclone, the filter will be less polluted and it will be easier and safer to empty the vacuum cleaner tank.
