Design of High Efficiency Cyclone for Tiny Cement Industry

Niki Gopani and Akshey Bhargava
Abstract—Air pollution is assuming alarming dimensions from industries, automobiles and house hold fuel burning. Cement industry can be classified as highly air polluting industry emitting PM (Particulate Matter) into the atmosphere. This pollutant is in the form of PM (Particulate Matter) is required to be control by installing air pollution control equipment like ESP (Electrostatic Precipitators), Bag houses, Wet scrubbers and cyclone. Cyclone is considered to be cheaper having low maintenance cost. The present paper aims at designing of high efficiency cyclone by using STAIRMAND METHOD for a tiny cement plant. The efficiency achieved with this design is of the order of 91.1 %.

Index Terms—Air pollution, cyclone, pm (particulate matter), tiny cement plant.
