May 24 1998 About solidliquid hydro cyclone we would increase its separation efficiency by measuring its inlet pressure but the case of liquidliquid hydrocyclone IS different More higher inlet pressure means more higher inlet velocity which would cause liquid drops to break and increase separating difficulties
