  • Publication number: 20160368788
    Abstract: A particle separator includes a particle separation member having a plurality of conical cavities for separating particles from unclean liquid; a fluid distribution member for distributing the unclean liquid to the cavities; a particle collection member for collecting the separated particles; and a fluid guiding member for guiding cleaned liquid to an outlet. Each cavity has a narrow open end and a wide open end. A vortex finder is disposed in each of the cavities. An entry channel for the liquid has an inlet section arranged between two adjacent cavities of the particle separation member.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 9399182
    Abstract: A particle separator includes a particle separation member to separate particles from liquid; a particle collection member for collecting particles from the particle separation member; and a liquid guiding member for guiding liquid flowing from the particle separation member to an outlet. The particle separation member includes an inlet for receiving un-clean liquid, a first separation section configured for preliminarily separating particles from the liquid, and a second separation section for separating further particles from liquid flowing from the first separation section. The second separation section includes a plurality of cyclones each having a wide open end connected to the first separation section and a narrow open end connected to the particle collection member.
