cyclone (collector)

in atmospheric chemistry
A dust, grit or droplet separator utilizing essentially the centrifugal force derived from the motion of the gas. The flow of gases containing suspended particles into the device is transformed into a confined vortex from which centrifugal forces tend to drive the suspended particles to the wall of the cyclone body. The agglomerated particles are subsequently removed from the cyclone by gravitational action.
