Diameter Cyclone Unit

Diameter Cyclone Unit

This custom cyclone unit was manufactured by Horner Fan and Fabrication for a client in the paper mill industry. Composed of several different pieces, including a cone, top housing, and a rain cap, the primary material was 10 gage hot rolled steel, and we used a variety of manufacturing processes.

Working with raw material ranging in dimension from 48″ by 96″ up to 72″ by 120″, we started with laser cutting. Using CAD/Sigma Nest programming for our laser cutters, we cut sections for the cone, the top housing, and the rain cap. Next, we saw cut the frame sections, and roll formed components to meet the customer’s design. We weld laser cut sections to produce the form and frame. To finish the cyclone, we painted it gray with a roller. The final cyclone measured 102″ in outside diameter, 106″ wide, 20′ tall, and weighed an approximate 5,000 lbs.
