R&R-BETH cyclones are high performance centrifugal separators with an extremely high
separation rate and low pressure drop.
They have proved a resounding success in numerous industrial operations. Depending on application and type of dust, they can be used as either stand-alone dedusters or preseparators.
R&R-BETH cyclones are available intwenty different installation sizes that are designed for flow volumes from 560 m³/h to 113,600 m³/h (≈ 330 cu.ft./min to 66,860 cu.ft./min). Of course, these cyclones can be used for evenlarger volumes if they are installed as twin (or even quadruple) separators.
In the standard version, R&R-BETH cyclones can be used at temperatures up to 450°C (842°F) – the filter media being selected according to the respective procedural requirements.
The dust content of raw gas can range from a few grams to several kilograms per cubic meter, depending on the case at hand. When dust contents are high it is essential to adjust the outlet devices (such as rotary valves or double flap valves) to increased material flows.
Abrasive dusts such as quartz, corundum, or cement can lead to considerable material wear, also depending on circumferential speed and the resulting side friction in the separators. This is why separators that are predominantly used for these dusts can be equipped with suitable wear protection, such as a wear-resistant sheet metal inlay or a cast basalt lining. Choosing the perfect wear protection depends on the case at Hand and various procedural parameters.
For applications involving explosive dusts, R&R-BETH® cyclones are modified in an explosion
proof version. Like all of R&R-BETH’s products, these separators have stood the test of
time in many different cases of operation, such as brown coal (lignite) separation.
