FLSmidth KREBS Hydrocyclones provide optimum cyclone performance and deliver sharper particle separations at high capacities.
FLSmidth KREBS Hydrocyclones Inlet Head
Krebs gMAX® cyclone inlet has an outer wall involute design entrance that pre-classifies the feed solids prior to entering the main body of the cyclone. The upper part of the gMAX also includes a vortex finder and top cover plate liner design.
The Krebs gMAX® inlet head results in less misplacement of coarse material to the overflow and dramatically increased wear life. This longer wear life for the gMAX inlet, combined with premium ceramics in the lower parts of the cyclone, will greatly increase the time between complete cyclone repair / rebuilds.
The contoured, ramped inlet pre-classifies the slurry, reducing turbulence
Reduced turbulence minimizes coarse solids bypass to overflow
Reduced turbulence increases the wear life of the liners
Through the use of CFD analysis, FLSmidth Krebs has designed the gMAX cyclone with sharper upper cones followed by longer angled lower cones. This combination maximizes tangential velocity in the upper part of the cyclone. It then provides a long residence time in the critical separation zones in the lower part of the cyclone. This results in a substantially finer separation with fewer fines in the underflow. Single cone angle versions are available for some applications.
