In this post, we are going to talk about hydrocyclone.

Here is mainly introduce 4 types of hydrocyclone used in mineral processing.

  • XCI Hydrocyclone

  • XCII Hydrocyclone

  • XCIII Hydrocyclone

  • XCIII Hydrocyclone

 Let's dive right in!

1. What is hydrocyclone?

Hydrocyclone is a classification equipment widely used at present because of its high classification efficiency, small floor space and low price. It can be applied in the mineral classification, sewage treatment, slurry concentration, desilting and oil and water separation, etc. In a simple way, the working principle of hydrocyclone is to use the mineral density difference between materials to separate. What types of hydrocyclone are commonly used in mineral processing plants?

There are four main types of hydrocyclone used in mineral processing, include XCI hydrocyclone, XCII hydrocyclone, XCIII hydrocyclone and XCIV hydrocyclone, each of them has its own features.

2. XCI Hydrocyclone

XCI hydrocyclone, with adjusted feeding throat and desilting throat, is a new type high-efficiency hydrocyclone. It uses 3D model and CFD model and other professional design theory, at world-class level,which is suitable for classification and dewatering.

3. XCII Hydrocyclone

XCII hydrocyclone could be divided as classifying type and thickening type. The feeding throats of XCII classifying hydrocyclone are involute type, which increases the centrifugal force to feed granule. So that it can get a better classifying effect and reduce the damage to feed box. XCII hydrocyclone is more suitable for classification and can replace spiral classifier completely in small and middle processing plants. The products through XCII classifying hydrocyclone can increase 10%-15% handling capacity to ball mill. XCII thickening hydrocyclone is a new type designed for tailings dry outlet. The structure of it is reasonable and the thickening effect is excellent too. The concentration of bottom flow reaches 75%. It gets obviously results in the practices of tailings dry raw application.

4. XCIII Hydrocyclone

XCIII hydrocyclone is equipped with a special fishtail device at the desilting throat. It could adjust bottom flow concentration through the change created by adjusting siphon device. Thick granules are not easy to be left out when overflow. XCIII hydrocyclone is applied to thickening and classification.

5. XCIV Hydrocyclone

XCIV hydrocyclone has a reasonable structure size, and equipped with an adjustable tightening sleeve at the desilting throat. The tightening sleeve can adjust the length of desilting exactly. XCIV hydrocyclone has a stable separation direction and applying for the classification and dewatering of thin granule.


Her are four types of hydrocyclone used in the mineral processing. When choosing a hydrocyclone, it is recommended to purchase it from professional and regular hydrocyclone manufacturers, and consult professional hydrocyclone technicians according to their actual production conditions, so as to achieve both technical indicators and economic benefits.
