Industrial Ecology


Wet cyclone operation is analyzed. General data are given on d50 (diameter of particles trapped in an inertial equipment with a performance of 0.5) in relation to the hydraulic resistance coefficient, and also on d50 in relation to hydraulic resistance for scrubbers of various types.
