Narmer Engsim's ACE Hydrocyclone aims to impress. Here are our experimental results when using an ultrafine coal sample.
A sample of ultrafine was used to experimentally evaluate the separation rate and efficiency of the DV-hydrocyclone.
Mean particle size ~ 20 microns
Slurry mass loading ~ 9.1%
Added quartz particle ~ 100 mesh @ 3%
Slurry flow rate ~ 0.5 L/s
Air flow rate ~ 2 L/s @ standard atmospheric condition
Separation efficiency > 95%
High separation rates
80% recovery of fine/ultrafine coal
30% Less Power Consumed than froth tank separators
