Laser Diffraction Particle Size Analysis – Hydrocyclone Performance
Project: Hydrocyclone Performance Optimisation
Samples were collected from hydrocyclone underflows and overflows over a significant number of tests and analysed for particle size and grade efficiencies of the cyclone tests calculated. Laser diffraction particle size analysis was conducted with Grinding Solutions’ new Malvern Mastersizer 3000 on samples generated from hydrocyclone performance testing. Results of the particle size analysis were used to modify the hydrocyclone operating parameters making improvements in separation efficiencies.
