Settling cyclone

Settling cyclone with high-yield vortex separation removes particulate from the air, manufactured in various diameters depending on the needs of the customer.

The Mion Ventoltermica settling cyclone allows the abatement of dust with coarse granularity, wood shavings, sawdust, metal dust, etc., and acts as a pre-filter for bag filters which retards clogging.

Where particulate from combustion fumes is treated, the settling cyclone is suitably insulated.

Principle of operation:

the dust enters the cyclone tangentially, it starts a vortical descent due to the effects of gravity and centrifugal force; clean air exits upwards while the dust descends to the lower section of the cyclone, finally arriving at the star valve.

The dust may then be collected through one of the following systems:

  • screw conveyor;
  • drum trolley;
  • chain conveyor;
  • pneumatic transport.

The settling cyclone may be positioned on top of a storage silo or discharge directly at ground level.


Further Details

The Mion Ventoltermica settling cyclone is consists of:

  • cylindrical body complete with socket and slide (internal or external) to load material, internal cone for increased efficiency and umbrella hood air vent to release air into the atmosphere;
  • material discharge and settling cone, complete with brackets for possible connection to support legs;
  • built entirely in 30/10 or 40/10 S235JR steel, flanged to an angular profile, the joins between the elements fastened with unified hexagonal bolts, self-adhesive foam rubber gasket seals between the joins, protected with a coating of rustproof epoxy and a coating of synthetic enamel.

The settling cyclone may be also be manufactured from AISI 304 or 316 steel or anti-abrasion materials such as manganese, Castolin and weathering steel.

Manufactured to fulfil ATEX requirements upon request.


  • highly efficient in the treatment of coarse particulate;
  • little need for maintenance;
  • low running costs;
  • good operational flexibility;
  • easy dust recovery.
