Our EXAMPLE Grinding and Classification Circuit is designed to grind 500 tonnes of ore per day, operating 24 hours per day, with an availability of 95%. This circuit will grind -5/8″ material from the Crushing Plant, classify the slurry in one of two cyclones, and pass 70% of the minus 200 mesh material to the mill feed Thickener
Good cyclone separation depends upon control of pressure drop, pulp density and apex size. The ‘pressure drop’ may vary but should
For a hydrocyclone to work at peak efficiency the volume of slurry and the feed pump delivery pressure must remain constant. If the cyclone feed pump is allowed to SURGE, the up and down pressure will cause poor separation at the point of high and low operating pressure. There
Here is a simple Table for Troubleshooting Hydrocyclones.
Other Hydrocyclone Troubleshooting Tips:
Underflow is too wet
Apex is too large
Vacuum control valve is open too far
Inlet pressure is too low
Pump is cavitating

Hydrocyclone is a continuous device that utilizes centrifugal force to accelerate the settling rate of particles. When feed slurry enters the hydrocyclone tangentially under pressure, as result of the high centrifugal forces, particles coarser than the “cut
The third type of classification used in mining is the Hydrocyclone, commonly called a Cyclone. Unlike the others it has no moving parts and is worked in conjunction of another piece of equipment, a pump. To understand the Hydrocyclone Working Principle we must first know its components. Beginning at
Cyclone in Operation
The hydrocyclone operation consist of having the ore slurry pumped into its feed inlet, the ore is then separated by size with the fine material coming out of what is referred to as the “OVERFLOW” via a Vortex Finder. The mineral that still requires grinding is named
