Weir Minerals has launched two new versions of its heavy-duty CAVEX® hydrocyclones in the European market.
The new CAVEX® CVXU polyurethane hydrocyclone and CAVEX CVXT ceramic tile-lined hydrocyclone are designed to withstand severe abrasion and join the existing range of CAVEX® cyclones from Weir Minerals.
The unique shape of CAVEX hydrocyclones features a laminar spiral inlet geometry that allows the slurry to follow a natural path without encountering any sharp edges. This reduces turbulence inside the cyclone which helps maximise separation efficiency, hydraulic capacity and extend wear life, while minimising localised wear on the feed chamber and vortex finder.
Alongside the polyurethane hydrocyclones, ceramic tile-lined CAVEX CVXT hydrocyclones are available to order and offer a solution to abrasive and chemically-active applications where rubber linings are not suitable. Engineered, slip-cast tiles and shaped components deliver the same advanced geometry in an exceptionally resilient material, robust enough for even the most demanding of applications.
“Cavex hydrocyclones are highly regarded for their proven hydraulic efficiency and durability in harsh environments, said Tony G. Locke, managing director of Weir Minerals Europe. “The range of lining materials available make them ideal for highly erosive and corrosive applications.
