1. In the circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers, the cyclone separator is a critical component of the external solid recycle loop. It is used to separate solid particles from flue gas efficiently.
2. The RSM turbulence model is adopted to describe the gas phase, and the particle stochastic trajectory model is used to describe the solid phase. The results show that the separation efficiency of the cyclone can be improved at a certain entrance section angle.
3. When the inclination α = 10°, the separation efficiency of the cyclone is highest. When the entryway has the ladder configuration, the streamlines in the cyclone separator tend to bend downward after passing through the ladder, which is conducive to improve the particles’ separation efficiency.
4. A proper cutting angle at the bottom of the central cylinder can improve the internal gas flow and increase the separation efficiency of the cyclone separators.

10. Separate liquid or solid particulates,sometiome both in combination with proper design
1. Cyclonic separation is a method of removing particulates from an air, gas or liquid stream, without the use of filters, through vortex separation.
2. When removing particulate matter from liquids, a hydrocyclone is used; while from gas, a gas cyclone is used.
3. Rotational effects and gravity are used to separate mixtures of solids and fluids.
4. The method can also be used to separate fine droplets of liquid from a gaseous stream.
5. Cyclonic separation can eliminate particulates, such as dirt and dust, from a stream of air, gas or liquid. Engineers sometimes call these tornadic dust busters centrifugal separators. That's because at the root of these machines is something called centrifugal force.
