A cyclone separator is a device that separates particulate matter from flue gases by thru the principle of inertia. The principle of inertia states that with every action, a particular reaction takes place and this is true with the device. A cyclone separator is part of a group of air pollution control device called precleaners. Precleaners work by removing large amounts of particulate matter. With this, fine filtration of large, more abrasive particles is reduced. There is also another type of cyclone separator that works in parallel along with other cyclone operators called multicyclone.
Since a cyclone separator is only a part of a bigger device, the air pollution control device, it does not require a special maintenance. Instead, it is checked when the entire unit of air pollution control device is maintained. Still, you need to hire a qualified cyclone separator mechanic when you need its repair or maintenance check. If you need one, here is how you can hire a reputable mechanic and operator for your precleaners.
If you are not sure where to begin looking for a mechanic, ask from the manufacturer where you purchased the unit or wherever you bought the unit. As an alternative, you can get the information from your local hardware because they usually know and can refer qualified mechanics and repairmen in your area. You can also check from your fitting companies because they have different repairmen with different specializations. It would be better if you hire a mechanic who is employed by a reputable company.
Ask for the contact information of the referred mechanic then schedule a meeting. You may want to find out if the cyclone separator mechanic has any membership from an accredited body and more importantly, if he has license to perform the job required. Try to validate this information from the accreditation board in your area. You may also want to ask for the contact numbers of the mechanic’s previous customers to find out if they were satisfied with his job performance. If you are happy with the information you gathered, you can then schedule the cyclone separator repair on your preferred date.
