    Abstract

    The shape and size of a hydrocyclone affects its internal flow structure and separation performance. The types of internal flows that can develop in hydrocyclone separators at low and high Reynolds numbers based on the Navier-Stokes equation and the RANS-equation, respectively, were examined. Three types of hydrocyclone were investigated: A 5-mm hydrocyclone, a 76-mm Rietema hydrocyclone and a 250-mm hydrocyclone with different cone angles. Computational fluid dynamic simulations of the mean velocity and pressure fields are reported.
