Van Tongeren America unveiled a line of industrial cyclone separation systems that process aggregate and a variety of other particulates.

Specified to separate dry particles from a stream of air or another gas and remove momentum, the systems are custom-engineered for dust collection, particle classification and material recovery to achieve maximum collection efficiency based on the desired cut point, material load, airstream velocity and other factors, the company says.

According to Van Tongeren, the cyclones are ideal for installation downstream from dryers, coolers, boilers, combustors, pneumatic conveyors and from other dry processing equipment, processing aggregate, cement, foods, pharmaceuticals, metals and more.

The cyclones are designed with no moving parts for low maintenance and may be manufactured with a range of linings for long-term protection against wear due to abrasive, corrosive and high-temperature gasses and materials, Van Tongeren adds.
