AKA-SPIDER are annular distributors for a homogeneous and equal pressure distribution of the suspension on hydrocyclones in case a number of hydrocyclones will be in operation to reach the required throughput.

Principle of operation

The hydrocyclones are connected with the feed pipe to an inflow chamber which will be fed by a pipe with the necessary amount of slurry for all hydrocyclones with the calculated pressure. Each hydrocyclone is pressurized with the same pressure. The overflows will be collected in an overflow tank as well as the underflows in a separate underflow tank.

Design features and advantages

  • Homogeneous and equal pressure distribution of the suspension on every hydrocyclone in operation
  • Equal flow distribution
  • Customized design
  • Available as annular or longitude distributor
  • Available with rubber liner
  • Reduced dead zone in the feed tank
  • Different kind of shut off valves (butterfly valves, flat valves, bottom angle valves)
  • Can be equipped with antiblocking filter AKA-STRAINER
