100% Designed and Built by Superior
A slurry material is pressurized and fed near the top of the cone-shaped cyclone. Heavier, coarser product is flung to the outside while the finer particles collect in the center where a constant syphoning effect is taking place. This pulls the finer waste product out through the overflow pipe. Salable product is discharged through the apex at the bottom.
Unless replacing an existing product, cyclones are traditionally sold as part of a larger package like within a Spirit® Sand Plant or alongside a dewatering screen.
We offer two models of hydrocyclones depending on your application. The first — for fines recovery — is manufactured of 100% cast urethane and is typically designed for about a 400 mesh cut (37 µm).
The other model is for sand production applications. It’s constructed of a steel shell lined internally with urethane and makes its cut around 170 mesh (88 µm).
Features & Benefits
Square to round-shaped transition is manufactured with high wear urethane.
Geometrically efficient inlet reduces feed turbulence to improve classification and lower internal wear. (Patent Pending)
Prevents short-circuiting (less misplacement of coarse material to the overflow.)
Fines recovery models cast of 100% urethane, while sand production models have a steel case and urethane lining.
Custom-cut for quick, in-the-field application adjustments. (Patent Pending)

Most of the time, we rely on our dealers to stock Superior equipment. However, we typically have a small amount of factory stock.
Service & Parts
We always have been and always will be a privately-owned company. That means we can add more employees to our customer service team without Wall Street breathing down our neck. Isn’t that the way it should be?
They’re the same neighbors you’d trust to babysit your dog on the weekend. Our factory-trained dealers are a local connection for sales, service and parts.
Staffed by agents born to serve others, you’re welcome to call our technical service team 24/7/365. (If you call in the middle of the night, we can’t guarantee they’re in uniform!)
You know the old saying…”square pegs don’t fit in round holes?” It’s often the case with knock-off parts. Genuine Superior parts are forged from the same steel as our equipment
