The Modified Cyclonic Particulate Separator (MCPS) is developed as smart alternative for separation of solids fractions based on specific gravity. The separation is either wet or dry in a closed system where any liquids are recycled back into the process again. No chemicals are used and the demand for energy is low compared with other separation systems.

In a wet process (most common) the fraction is conditioned to a proper pulp density in a large conditioning/slurry tank prior to injection into the modified cyclone. KG's proprietary technique separates LIGHTS from the MEDIUM-LIGHTS and HEAVY material inside a proprietary slurry separator device in the modified cyclone.The feed slurry ("A") is pumped in and split into 3 fractions "B", "C", and "D". The "D" fraction consisting of the HEAVY is most commonly further split via a tradtional gravity spiral into sveral heavy fractions as needed.


Either "B", "C" or "D" discharge flow can then be pumped into a secondary set separators for even closer cut. Most separations require a number of  serial coupled units. The different fractions can either be "waste" or "value"depending on the actual process material.


The units are manufactured in High Density Polypropylene. A typical unit is 600 mm tall with a diameter around 160 mm all dependent on feed material sizes.
