The Horizontal Material Separator (HMS) cyclone separates conveyed material from the conveying airstream, minimizing the amount of air that exits with discharge material. The horizontal cyclone design is similar to a standard cyclone however; the main housing unit is turned 90° with both cylinder ends capped. Functionality of the HMS is also proven to have comparable efficiencies to a standard cyclone. Testing has confirmed that minimal carryover takes place while conveying with an HMS. The HMS is ideal for handling large and small kibble, large flakes and fish feed.
