Studies and Research on Cyclone Separators: A Review

Authors(2) :-Sunil J. Kulkarni, Nilesh L. Shinde

Sustainable development is most commonly used term nowadays. The industrial growth is essential part of global economy. The chemical manufacturing sector is always under scanner of pollution control authorities and organizations because of emission of water and air pollutants. Removal of gases and particulate matter is necessary from social and regulatory point of view. The gases are normally removed by absorption or adsorption. The removal of particulate matter is often carried out by using electrostatic precipitator or cyclone separator. The cost involved for treatment is driving force for optimization and research on pollution control equipments. The present review summarizes research and studies on cyclone separators.
