Multicyclone separators are high-capacity designs intended to remove both liquids and solids from gas, air, or steam with a minimum pressure drop and a wide operating range. The basic design features an array of individual cyclone tubes fixed between two tubesheets. Gas entering the tube chamber centrifugally accelerated as it enters the individual tubes. The rapid spinning action throws the heavier solid and liquid contaminants outward against the inside of the cyclone housing, where they fall through the lower tubesheet into a sump. The cleaned gas exits via a riser tube through the upper tubesheet to exit the vessel.
