Fourth Stage Separators
Fourth stage cyclones are applied in the underflow from a
third stage and are used to collect solids that have already been separated in
the third stage. Solids separated in the third stage are transported to
the fourth stage using a small percentage of the flue gas as the median for
transportation of the catalyst, which is controlled by an orifice normally
located downstream of the fourth stage cyclone.
There are many different configurations for the underflow
and fourth stage cyclone system, which must also be designed to accommodate
unloading of the solids from the fines collection hopper.
Our fourth stage cyclone systems, which are typically
designed and fabricated to pressure vessel standards and are supported by the
fines hopper vessel, have been supplied for many third stage separator systems.
Catalyst Hopper Cyclones
Our Catalyst Hopper Cyclones are easily adaptable to a
variety of applications, including loading and/or unloading of Fresh and Spent
Catalyst Hoppers, or as auxiliary hoppers for special additives. These
cyclones are typically designed to minimize catalyst lost to atmosphere in the
vent from the hopper during loading and/or unloading operations of the hopper.
Although catalyst hopper cyclone systems must often be
designed to accommodate unloading of the solids from the fines collection
hopper, there are different configurations
