A large cone angle cyclone is a type of cyclone separator used for particle classification in mineral processing operations. It is designed with a cone angle of 20-30 degrees, which is larger than the typical cyclone angle of 10-20 degrees. This larger cone angle increases the centrifugal force and retention time of the particles, leading to better separation efficiency.

The large cone angle cyclone works by creating a spinning vortex inside the cyclone chamber. As the slurry enters the cyclone, it is forced to spin around the axis of the cone. The centrifugal force generated by the spinning motion causes the heavier particles to move towards the wall of the cone, while the lighter particles move towards the center of the cone. The heavier particles are then collected and discharged through the underflow outlet, while the lighter particles are discharged through the overflow outlet.

The advantages of the large cone angle cyclone include its higher separation efficiency, lower energy consumption, and smaller size compared to conventional cyclones. It is also less susceptible to plugging and can handle higher feed rates, making it suitable for processing high-tonnage materials.

Large cone angle cyclones are commonly used in the classification of fine particles in mineral processing, such as in the processing of iron ore, copper ore, and coal. They are also used in the classification of industrial minerals, such as silica sand and feldspar.

Overall, the large cone angle cyclone is a reliable and efficient particle classification tool that plays an important role in mineral processing operations. Its unique design and superior performance make it a popular choice for processing a variety of materials in the mining industry.
