my name is Jean. I study mechanical engineering & management in Munich. After I finished my Bachelor Thesis about particle seperation, I decided to build a cyclone for my vac and explain a few details for you guys ‘in the internet’.
The drawing (in millimeters of course – this is german engineering)
Here are some Infos, that I found were very helpful:
The Inlet should be flat and the pipe should not project inside. The inside should be smooth and contiuous (no corners or steps in the diameter)
The pressure in the middle of the cylone is lower than at the wall. This causes a suction effect, that will suck off dust from the reservoir below, that has already been separated.
To block that ‘suction tube’, you should insert a plate like this:
This will allow to dust to go down at the side, but blocks the middle, where it wants to come up. Do not
All the rest is two pieces of PP-waterpipe, a bin as a reservoir and a bit of epoxy.
I quaranty best results!
Any questions? Let me know!
All the best from Germany,
