Hydrocylones unit are utilize centrifugal force to separating solids from liquids. Solids are forced to the wall of the cone and exit through the bottom; cleaned fluids exit from the top.
The rule of solids control is always the same: Success to any method of solids control is achieved when cuttings are kept intact from bit to surface.

Cyclone, A liquid-solids separation device which utilizes centrifugal force to speed up settling. Drilling fluid is pumped tangentially into a cone and the rotation of the fluid provides centrifugal force to separate particles by mass weight – the heavier solids being separated from the light solids and liquid.
The polyurethane hydrocyclone is a simple and easy to maintain mechanical separation device. It’s crucial part of desander, desilter and mud cleaner. The split type is obtained by converting the feed energy of the power input into the centrifugal force inside the cone.
