Abstract An extensive test programme has been conducted on 10.2-, 25.4- and 38.1-cm "Krebs" hydrocyclones in order to study the effects of some design and operating variables on their volume capacities. For a given pressure the capacity of a cyclone was found to rise sharply with the addition of solid particles to water until the solids content was about 15% by weight. Further increase in solids caused a decrease in throughput. The effect of vortex finder diameter on the throughput was found to be non-linear. A general equation which relates inlet and outlet diameters, operating pressure and feed solids content to the volume capacity is presented. This equation is independent of hydrocyclone diameter.
