Hysys Simulation Of Dewatering Hydrocyclone

Hysys Simulation Of Dewatering Hydrocyclone

Hysys Simulation Of Dewatering Hydrocyclone

Hi all,

Please can anyone advice me about number of parallel cyclones due to high pressure drop for Hydrocyclone HYSYS simulation.
.... what defines the minimum pressure drop requirement for single cyclone for a particular underflow size and vortex finder
.... Can anyone suggest any technical material on hydrocyclone simulation using HYSYS. The HYSYS manual and help do not seem to give any details on number parallel of cyclone - pressure drop relationship

I am trying to implement dewatering of a low concentration slurry (solid of around 10 to 20 microns) 10 wt% to achieve up to 50 wt% slurry on HYSYS with low cyclone diameter of 25mm, feed flowrate at high pressure 5MPa.

... Please any comments on achieving this on HYSYS
