The HydroSpins are simple hydrocyclones solids/liquid separation devices, with no moving parts, designed to accelerate the settling process of solids in liquid using centrifugal force. What determines the separation size of particles in a cyclone is a function of feed pressure, cyclone diameter, exit dimensions, and the relative characteristics of the particles and liquid. Special oil/water separating hydrocyclones are also offered in this line.

The incoming flow is directed into the cylindrical part of the hydrocyclone tangentially, creating a spin of the entire contents of the flow. The heavy components in the stream move outward toward the wall of the cylinder. The conical section of the cyclone causes the speed of rotation to increase throwing even smaller particles toward the wall. In solids/liquid separating hydrocyclones the solids tend to move downward to the bottom of the cyclone by gravity where they are discharged with a percentage of the incoming flow. The cleaner fluid circulating in the center forms a vortex that travels up and out of the top section of the cyclone through the vortex finder.
