pressure drop in a hydrocyclone

In this paper a novel dynamic de-oiling oil-water separator was proposed and through Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD simulation the effects of the pressure drop ratio on the separation efficiency and the split ratio were analyzed The results shows that the separation efficiency initially increased and then held steady as the pressure drop ratio increased while the split ratio exhibited

Pressure drop inside the hydrocyclones are investigated and the results are shown in Fig 4 to analyze the effect of the feed velocity on pressure drop Pressure drop for the conventional and ribbed hydrocyclone at velocities of 1 5 m s and vortex finder depth of 7 6 cm is shown in Fig 4

Deoiler cyclones are driven by inlet water pressure and utilise a pressure drop across the Cyclone to provide the energy or driving force to cause oil-water separation Normally system pressure is used to provide the driving pressure but if too low 75 psig 5 Barg a pump can be used to boost the feed pressure

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 is a cycle to a surging pump box that causes this pressure fluctuation

In this paper a novel dynamic de-oiling oil-water separator was proposed The effects of the split ratio and the pressure drop ratio on the separation efficiency were investigated through theoretical analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD simulation Pressure ratio variations were achieved

Liquid liquid hydrocyclone is one of the most advanced yet least complicated oil water separation devices available It provides maximum separation efficiency for the smallest space impact of the available technologies Principle of Operation Hydrocyclones operate under system pressure and use pressure drop as the primary source of energy
