The slurry is fed into the cyclone under pressure through the tangent or involute inlet (depending upon the type of inlet chamber). As the feed enters the chamber, a rotation of the slurry inside the cyclone begins, causing centrifugal forces to accelerate the movement of the particles towards the outer wall. The particles migrate downward in a spiral pattern through the cylindrical section and into the conical section. At this point the smaller mass particles migrate toward the center and spiral upward and out through the vortex finder, discharging through the overflow pipe. The higher mass particles remain in a downward spiral path along the walls of the conical section and gradually exit through the apex.
