Summer 2019, delivery of five hydrocyclones placed in parallel for the removal of solid parts from groundwater at a power plant in North Holland.
When pumping up groundwater, there was a lot of solids / sand present that the energy company wanted to have removed.
After three quarters of a year of the quotation stage, testing on a laboratory scale, testing in by-pass flow with positive results, JMF-Filters BV was finally allowed to receive the order.
In-house we placed the five cyclone separators in two Manifolds. After placement, a start-up procedure and a test period of five days followed.
After some minor adjustments and fine-tuning, the filtration project could be delivered after satisfaction.
A water cyclone is a centrifugal separator in which solid, undissolved particles are separated from the liquid / water due to their mass.
Solid liquid separation by means of centrifugal force.
The liquid (usually water) is swirled around quickly so that the heavy parts fall down under the action of gravity and centrifugal force.
The optimization of the solid-liquid separation depends on the density of the solid and liquid and can be adjusted by the rotation speed.
A hydrocyclone is extremely suitable for processing a large amount of water in a short time. Hydrocyclones also take up little space.
Which is also a big advantage over a centrifuge that there are no moving parts and the centrifugal force / vortex is initiated by means of the
speed and pressure of the incoming water. Cyclone separators are often used for desanding (sand-water separation).
Depending on the application, capacity and throughput, we can offer you the right solution.
JMF-Filters B.V. produces and supplies a complete range of high quality industrial cyclone separators, also known as cyclone filters.
The cyclones can be supplied in stainless steel 304, stainless steel 316, Duplex 2205, Polyurethane coating (class ISO 12944 / Marine Environments)
