HYDROCYCLONE COMPACT PLANT - HYDROSET®
The Hydroset Compact Hydrocyclone Plants are used to wash and classify sands and other fine materials. Each consists of three main modular components - a pumping set, a hydrocyclone assembly and a dewatering screen. The selection of this equipment with the appropriate configuration and sizing enables it to exactly match the operational duties and conditions required for every application. Their use is mainly in sand washing, classification and fine sands recovery, as well as in the production of special sands, bentonite regeneration and lignite removal.
The compact and effective design of the Hydroset Compact Plants ensures significant user benefits, such as speedy assembly and installation, ease of operation, low maintenance and a reduced footprint.
The slurry feed, which is usually from by a vibrating screen, in the case of a sand washing process, or as an overflow effluent from a screw classifier or bucket-wheel, in fine sand recovery processes, is fed to the Pumping Group from where it is pumped to the Hydrocyclone, which eliminates undesirable particles (clay, silt, etc.). The washed product discharged from the hydrocyclone is delivered to the Dewatering Screen to reduce the moisture content of the final product and thus obtain an easy-to-handle, top-quality material. The hydrocyclone overflow containing rejected particles is discharged to settling ponds or reprocessed in the subsequent clarification and filtering stages, thus minimizing environmental impact and reusing the water employed in the process.
