New 650 model joins Cavex 2 hydrocyclone range
Weir Minerals introduce second model in expanding range of advanced performance designs
WEIR Minerals first introduced the Cavex hydrocyclone more than 20 years ago, but the recent launch of the Cavex 2 design took the product range a step further with its LIG+ advanced laminar spiral inlet and feed chamber size delivering superior performance and 30% more capacity.
The new Cavex 2 650 is the latest hydrocyclone size to be released in the product line and, like all Cavex 2 cyclones, has undergone years of research, lab testing, and in-field testing to ensure it can withstand the rigours of heavy-duty industrial and abrasive applications, including classification and separation duties in the aggregates sector.
Featuring the advanced performance and design that Cavex 2 cyclones are known for, the 650 model is said to address the continual demand for increased operational capacity and offers customers process improvements combined with digital technology.
The new unit features a robust metal casing with a unique elongated chamber design, the additional length of which ensures turbulence is decreased inside the cyclone, allowing for additional volume and increased efficiency during the process.
To satisfy all process conditions and slurry types, the Cavex 2 650 hydrocyclone comes with a range of material technology options, including Linatex premium rubber, industry standard R55 rubber, neoprene, and ceramic, and can be customized to suit almost any application with a variety of spigots, vortex finders, and cone angles.
Available globally with assembly in local regions, the Cavex 2 650 is the second in a range of standard sizes that Weir Minerals are planning to release, with more sizes in development to expand the current product range.
