Cyclone Immersion (Dip) Tube for Preheater Lower Stages. Dip tubes have significant influence on the separation efficiency of a cyclone. In modern suspension preheaters it is standard to use cyclones with a dip tube for improved separation. Especially the design of a lower stage dip tube requires knowhow and expertise in order to achieve a low pressure drop of the cyclone by retaining the best possible .
(See illustration for comparison). In existing preheater towers, the acting loads on the structure usually limit installation of larger topstage cyclones than originally installed. However, due to its lightweight design, the CCX is well suited for such upgrades. For plant owners, this means the ability to boost preheater operation at a lower cost. CCX Operating Principle The CCX cyclone combines heat .
