The effect of addition of secondary inlet on particle collection efficiency of cyclone separator was studied. The centrifugal force acting on the particles was varied by providing double inlets to the cyclone separator and hence its particle collection efficiency was altered. A cyclone separator with dual inlets was fabricated. Experiments were conducted in order to analyze its performance by considering the individual gas flow rates in each inlet, gas flow rate ratio of the two inlets and particle to air ratio (particle concentration) as the parameters. The proposed cyclone separator had a difference in performance in collecting the particles from gas-solid mixture and the actual performance was observed after conducting experiments. To study the operation of cyclone separator, calculate the inlet gas velocity, collection efficiency, air flow measurements in rotameter and flow rate of air.
