Air-quality equipment for every work environment, from mild hazards to enormous dust levels: this is the specialty of N.R. Murphy Limited. For sawmills and woodworking shops, which need powerful equipment to collect the volumes of dust they spill into the air, the company offers a series of industrial cyclones.
Essential for these hazardous workplaces, cyclones offer a simple, economical means of separating air from dust in medium-to-coarse work environments.
Classification or sizing of material
Industrial cyclones can be used as standalone air material separators or in conjunction with dust collectors. They can also serve as primary separators to provide classification or sizing of material. N.R. Murphy supplies them in a broad range of sizes and can manufacture them from various materials.
Many industries use cyclones as primary separators that operate ahead of other dust collectors. They mix centrifugal action with gravity to achieve dust collection and separation. N.R. Murphy designs and builds them with higher efficiency on small dust particles, in addition to more up-to-date requirements.
These industrial cyclones come with various specifications. Users should consult N.R. Murphy technical representatives to select the most appropriate designs and construction materials for their applications, especially in circumstances involving severe abrasion or corrosion. The company recommends collecting a sample of the dust in the environment, since cyclone effectiveness depends on density, concentration, velocity, and specific gravity.
Three standard construction designs are available. Chip cyclones have short cone sections and are most suitable for heavy wood chips with minimal fines. High-efficiency units are available in different sizes, from small diameters to larger units, for various capacities. Standard cyclones are the most common types, available in multiple sizes and suited for coarse sawdust and shavings or material with few extreme fines. Users can add long cone spirals and skimmers.
These rugged designs employ heavy gauge carbon steel, abrasion-resistant steel, special alloys, and rubber linings. The standard design includes heavy gauge wiped galvanized all-welded construction and painting in one of many available colours. For quick setup at the customer’s workplace, cyclones typically leave N.R. Murphy’s facility fully assembled.
