Influence of the feed particle size distribution on roping
Oct 01, 2020· When the particle size increases, it tends to move to regions close to the wall of the hydrocyclone, which happens with roping and spray (see Figs. 8 and 9). In roping cases we can see a small discharge of small particles sizes through the overflow, but the bigger particles are almost totally discharged through the underflow and accumulated in

Hydrocyclone - Wikipedia
A hydrocyclone (often referred to by the shortened form hydroclone or cyclone) is a device to classify, separate or sort particles in a liquid suspension based on the ratio of their centripetal force to fluid resistance.This ratio is high for dense (where separation by density is required) and coarse (where separation by size is required) particles, and low for light and fine particles.
