The main advantages of uniflow cyclones compared to standard reverse flow cyclones are their compact design and their capability of being easily integrated into pipelines. Experiments show that a 0.2m-diameter horizontal uniflow cyclone re-moves 88.6% of 2 g/m3 of fine mineral powder (d10=3m, d50=20m) from 1000 m3/h air at a pressure loss of 2510 Pa (0.364 psi).
