High Efficiency Cyclones

High efficiency cyclone separators for air pollution control, reducing carbon emissions, boiler flue gas, high temperature and abrasive material collection.

High Efficiency Cyclones

High efficiency cyclone separators for Industrial & metallurgical Processes

Each cyclone separator, small or large, is designed by Van Tongeren specifically to meet the application requirements. Good particle recovery can be achieved down to 5 microns [and below] and temperatures up to 1000Deg C can be accommodated, whilst for some applications cyclones can be designed as Pressure Vessels

Van Tongeren High Efficiency cyclones supplied by Kentech and designed by Van Tongeren are individually constructed taking into account all operating variables, using programmes and data compiled over 80 plus years of successful plant installations.

Van Tongeren high efficiency cyclone separators are specifically designed for air pollution control, reducing carbon emissions and product recovery of various types of material. They are the result of continued research since 1927 and frequently demonstrate superiority over other types of cyclonic dust collectors, where the requirement is for the maximum possible recovery of high temperature, abrasive or fine material. .

There are a considerable number of industrial applications where Van Tongeren cyclones have demonstrated exceptional results particularly where the requirement has called for high efficiency gas cleaning or product dust collection where specific design experience has been required for construction of:-

  • Cyclones separators for very abrasive materials
  • High temperature cyclones
  • Pressure vessel cyclones
  • Refractory lined cyclones
