Solids and water are pumped into the hydrocyclone under pressure, creating a swirling motion inside the cylinder which pulls the solids to the outside by centrifugal force. The larger particles move downwards under gravity and leave via the bottom outlet with a small quantity of water. Fine solids remain near the center of the hydrocyclone with most of the water. This spirals upwards around an air core and is removed via a central pipe and out the top overflow.
