An Introduction to Cyclone Collectors for Air Pollution Control

COURSE NO: C02-080
An Introduction to Cyclone Collectors for Air Pollution Control
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides technical guidance that can be applied when designing and constructing air pollution control.


This course discusses the cyclone which is a widely used type of particulate collection device in which dust-laden gas enters tangentially into a cylindrical or conical chamber and leaves through a central opening. The resulting vortex motion or spiraling gas flow pattern creates a strong centrifugal force field in which dust particles, by virtue of their inertia, separate from the carrier gas stream. They then migrate along the cyclone walls by gas flow and gravity and fall into a storage receiver. In a boiler or incinerator installation this particulate is composed of fly-ash and unburned combustibles such as wood char.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to environmental engineers, mechanical engineers and construction managers wanting an introduction to cyclone particle collectors for air pollution control.
