Abstract: Influence of particle shape on hydrocyclone classification was investigated. Classification tests using hydrocyclone and cyclosizer showed that coarse fractions of plate-like particles such as PTFE and glass flake used here were not necessarily recovered as underflow product, especially at relatively high inlet velocity. Settling velocity of the glass flake particles in centrifugal field was estimated using a centrifugal particle size analyzer, and it was revealed that differences in settling velocity between coarse and fine glass flake particles became smaller with increases in angular velocity. Moreover, settling test of glass plate in water or glycerin solution was conducted to know relationship between particle Reynolds number (Re) and settling velocity of the plate. At smaller Re condition, the glass plate settled straight and stably, and larger plate settled faster than smaller plate. However, oscillating motion of the plate occurred in the region of high Re, and settling velocities of the large plate became smaller than that of the small plate in such conditions. Drag coefficient (C) calculated based on the settling velocity of the glass plate is similar to that of glass spheres below Re of about 50, above which it became larger than that of glass sphere. Approximation formula of correlaton between Re and C suggests that the influence of the Re on C can be neglected in the region of high Re, and C increases with increases in the ratio of the particle diameter to thickness (D/T). The decrease of the difference in settling velocity recognized in the centrifugal settling test and the effect of the particle shape (D/T) on C at high Re region are considered to be able to affect the hydrocyclone classification. The misplacement of coarse plate-like particles in the hydrocyclone and cyclosizer tests could be ascribed to the particle shape effects.
