Fine particles are usually collected by dry collectors, wet collectors, electrostatic precipitators and filters, at the commercial level. A cyclone separator is a commonly used device for separation of particles and dust from air or liquid streams. These separators are sometimes referred to as pre-cleaners. Cyclone separators can reduce the loading of larger, abrasive particles to downstream collectors and avoid tear or choke on the surface of electrostatic precipitators or filters. Conventional industrial cyclone separators have relatively low efficiencies, especially for very small particles and high operating costs. To some extent, a uniflow cyclone can overcome the abovementioned issue
