Abstract

In this study, the axial and tangential components of the mean velocity in a 3 inch hydrocyclone having different vortex finder geometries were measured using laser Doppler anemometry and has revealed multiple reverse flows in the vortex core. Flow visualization techniques were also used. A comparison study of the axial velocity for different vortex finder configurations showed that the vortex design influences the core region, but not the outer region. The velocity field in a hydrocyclone based on Rietma's optimal design criteria revealed the absence of an upward jet like flow on the core axis, which should minimize the entrainment of solid particles from the conical boundary layer.
