Cyclone separators have exist since the 1800's and are still widely used in many industries. Although hydrocyclone are geometrically simple, the physics describing the flow and separation processes which occur in them is complex. Over the decades many researchers have studied these devises and have developed a number of theories and empirical models for design purposes. In practice, most cyclones are design using some type of empirical information. Physical prototypes are then built, tested and tuned until an acceptable level of performance is obtained. Recent advancement in numerical methods and in the performance capabilities of moderately priced computers have opened the possibility of developing computer-based methods, which can be effectively used for hydrocyclone design study. This is where this project play part, a study of multiphase flow in hydrocyclone with different configuration of parameters are manipulate using computer model will be proposed. In this model, the mixture of multiphase flow model is used to simulate the internal three-dimensional flow field of the hydrocyclone using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method. AutoCAD and NUMECA FINE/Open are used as a medium to design and simulate the CFD model of hydrocyclone in this project to obtain optimum design configuration. The outcome of research is very helpful to explain the separation process and to optimize the hydrocyclone design. This study provides the potential to produce hydrocyclone designs with the required performance characteristics more quickly and more economically than older methods which use experimental design approach exclusively.
