Cyclones are one of the most used equipment for gas cleaning. These devices are widely used because of their simple construction, low energy requirements and their ability to work with high temperature and pressure levels. In this work, a flow visualization of a cyclone separation system is carried out. For that purpose, smoke particles and a laser beam were used to show the flow patterns within the separation system. The objective of this work is to visualize the flow within a cyclone separation system to elucidate the effect of the flow patterns in the gas-particle separation and the optimization of the cyclone.
