What is a Cyclone air cleaner?

What is a Cyclone air cleaner?

A cyclone is centrifugal separator where the particles are swung as a result of their mass by the centrifugal force to the outside. Entering air is automatically forced a rapidly spinning double vortex movement, so-called “double-vortex”.

How does a cyclone air filter work?

A cyclone is a centrifugal separator in which particles, due to their mass, are pushed to the outer edges as a result of centrifugal force. Incoming air is automatically forced to adopt a fast-revolving spiral movement – the so-called “double vortex”.

Why are cyclone dust collectors better?

Cyclone separators typically separate 99% of the dust particles >10 microns from the air stream and deposit them into a collection bin before reaching the filter. This means you won’t have to clean your shop vac or dust collector filter nearly as often if you use a cyclone separator.

Can you use synthetic oil in a Honda lawnmower?
