A cyclones separator or hydrocyclone is often used in the handling of contaminated dredged material, sand or soil. The hydrocyclone is a particle separator which combines classification (the separation of particles of different sizes) with sorting (separation of particles with different densities) and thus separates on weight instead of on size or density.
We have successfully applied this technique with several customers who are mainly active in the sector of soil-cleaning and the processing of sieve sand. The technology can also be applied to the de-sanding of wash water in the vegetable industry. Active systems can be found in the root industry, potato industry, etc.
