### AMIT 145: Lesson 2 Classifying Cyclones – Mining …

As such, the pressure drop used for determining the d 50(c) is applied to determine the feed flow rate per cyclone. To determine the number of cyclones needed, the total flow rate of the stream is divided by the allowable flow rate per cyclone (see attached graph). The data shown in the graph was obtained using water. Therefore, the determination of the number of cyclones will be a slight over ...
