Most people are aware of cyclone separators thanks to Sir James Dyson and his vacuum cleaners.
Cyclone separators are useful at capturing particles of 20micron and larger, i.e. visible to the naked eye.
Unfortunately laser marking generates a wide range of particle sizes that are smaller than this so standard cyclone separators are not as efficient.
BOFA International commissioned the University of Southampton in the UK, using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) techniques, to develop a cyclone to operate more efficiently at these lower particle sizes.
The AD Cyclone separator has been design specifically for use with the AD Oracle iQ extraction unit and is installed between the laser extraction point and the extractor. The airflow generated by the extraction unit powers the cyclone.
