Short description of how a dry and wet vacuum truck with cyclone separator works:
1. Volume increase
As the air makes the transition from the suction pipe connection (which is 8”) to the tank (which is bigger than 8”), the heavy parts drop to the bottom of the tank.
2. Air breaker
Provides an air refraction, which reduces the speed of the lighter particles, which also drop to the bottom.
3. Cyclone filtration
Finally, the floating parts are removed from the airflow by the swirling and refraction of the air in the cyclone.
4. End filter
Placed between the blower and the tank to prevent dust penetration.
