Hydrocyclone Diameter Calculator

This tool calculates a preliminary estimate of the diameter required for a hydrocyclone chamber to separate particles of a given size. In the equation below, d50 is the diameter of particles for which the cyclone is 50% efficient.

Type the required values to get the hydrocyclone chamber diameter (Dc):

Liquid Viscosity (µ, centipoise)

Feed Flow rate (L, l/min)

Liquid Density (ρl, g/cm3)

Solid Particles Density (ρs, g/cm3)

Particle diameter having 50% separation efficiency (d50, µm)

Hydrocyclone Chamber Diameter Dc (cm)
