Theoretical analysis of pressure losses in cyclone separators under the consideration of geometrical and flow parameters including inlet geometry, surface roughness, velocity and particles concentration, has been performed and a new equation has been developed. The results obtained in this study are compared with experimental values for different type of cyclones. It was found that the proposed equation could be used to predict the pressure losses easily and it is worthy especially industrial applications. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
