    The hydrocyclone is equipment for solid-liquid mixture separation. It can be used to both separate and concentrate dredged material. When a Trailer Suction Hopper Dredge (THSD) dredges material consisting of fine particles, the material can’t settle quickly in the hopper leading to an overflow-loading dredging method with low efficiency. Through an experiment in the Yangtze […]
