The cyclone separator has been used for the separation of particles or dust in a gas or liquid stream. Generally, high separation efficiency can be obtained at the high centrifugal region with a high nozzle velocity when the density of separated material is much larger than that of the working fluid. By using a special eddy breaker in the separation cone described in a previous study, high separation efficiency could be obtained even when the centrifugal force was low and the separated particle density was nearly equal to that of the working fluid. In the present study, the effectiveness of the eddy breaker was investigated for different liquid cyclone separator sizes.
