Description

The Cavex® Air core booster reduces pressure across the hydrocyclone, increasing the volume flow spit to the overflow.
Overview

Cavex® hydrocyclones fitted with the patented Air Core Boosters produce improvement in capacity and cyclone efficiency by reducing the total pressure across hydrocyclones, increasing the volume flow split to the overflow. The Air Core Booster allows use of a larger apex for a given bypass of water to the underflow, which produces a more stable, larger diameter air core, increasing capacity and reducing bypass of fines. Air Core Boosters are also designed to reduce chances of operating the hydrocyclone under roping conditions or blockages caused by oversize tramp material.
Key features/benefits

Weir Minerals Cavex® hydrocyclones with Air Core Boosters produce improvements in capacity and cyclone efficiency by reducing the total pressure across the hydrocyclone, increasing the volume flow split to the overflow.
The Air Core Booster allows use of a larger apex finder for a given bypass of water to the underflow, which produces a more stable, larger diameter air core, increasing capacity and reducing bypass of fines.
Air Core Boosters also reduce chances of operating the hydrocyclone under roping conditions or blockages due to large steel balls in the underflow.
