Gas Cyclones

Gas cyclones from SiccaDania have been optimised throughout the years to provide customers with the most effective cyclone to separate dry solids from gas.

The SiccaDania gas cyclones have previously been known under the name VTK and Van Tongeren. In 1927, Engineer Van Tongeren started in the Netherlands, introducing a greatly improved type of cyclone that was far superior in efficiency to the designs generally available at that time.

Throughout the years, we have continued to improve on the design and applicability of our cyclones where today we often can even meet the stringent emission levels. During this time, SiccaDania cyclone experts have become the leading authority on cyclone design. Today, many current designs are freely based on the original Van Tongeren concept.

We deliver the following cyclone configurations:

  • Conventional cyclones with tangential inlet, in various types and sizes
  • Multi cyclones with multiple smaller cyclones in one vessel. The multi cyclones have a very high efficiency and require limited floor space as well as height
  • Cyclone system arrangements, in parallel or serial as multiple stage execution

Applications

SiccaDania delivers cyclones primarily for separating dry solids from gas type media.

The following applications can be identified:

  • Gas cleaning (emission reduction)
  • Product recovery
  • Physical processes and/or chemical reactions

Specific cyclone features:

  • No utilities required for operation (e.g. compressed air, water)
  • No spare parts required
  • Static equipment, no moving parts
  • Stabile operation, no pressure fluctuations
  • Low CAPEX
  • Low OPEX
  • Hygienic design, easy to clean
  • Easy installation of equipment

Options

The cyclones can be delivered with several options :

  • Food grade execution, for example polishing, CIP provisions, food grade materials, etc.
  • ATEX execution, suitable for zone 0, 1, 2, 20, 21, 22. Including provisions for explosion protection like bursting panels, suppression system, etc.
  • High-temperature cyclones
  • Cyclones as pressure vessels
  • Wear resistant execution, for example wear resistant steel, hard facing, concrete lining etc.
  • Heat traced or jacketed
