Description:
A SPIN PLATE CYCLONIC FILTER

TECHNICAL FIELD

[001] The present disclosure described herein, generally relates to a separation apparatus, to separate a suspension of particles from liquid. More particularly, the present disclosure relates to a cyclone separator having improved separation capabilities over known cyclone separators.

BACKGROUND

[002] Cyclonic filters are used for separating heavy suspended impurities from the irrigation water before being supplied. In the cyclonic separators, the fluid is forced into a cylindrical enclosure at a tangential angle and is made to flow in an outer circuitous path. The fluid flows from this outer circuitous path toward the interior where it is withdrawn through a central opening. Since the fluid migrates in a direction opposite the radial centrifugal forces in the whirling fluid, heavier elements are left to the outside while clean fluid passes to the interior and out of the Cyclone separator through a central upper opening. The denser suspended particles remain in the outer circumference of the whirling fluid and are passed downwardly and out of the cyclone filter through a lower opening.

[003] The particle entrapping efficiency of cyclonic filter may be affected by the turbulence. The turbulent and cross current flows of solid particles which are travelling to the outer periphery may get pushed towards the central flow regime and pushed out, affecting the efficiency of the separator.

SUMMARY

[004] This summary is provided to introduce concepts related to spin plate filter and the concepts are further described below in the detailed description. This summary is not intended to identify essential features of the claimed subject matter nor is it intended for use in determining or limiting the scope of the claimed subject matter.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0010] The present subject matter discloses a spin plate filter.

[0011] In an exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure a spin filter plate is disclosed. The spin filter may be mounted in any type of separator/filter system used in irrigation system. The spin filter plate enables to create a cyclonic flow of the fluid, independent of the angle the fluid is supplied to the filter system.

[0012] The spin filter plate as disclosed in the exemplary embodiment is further configured to reduce the turbulence during the creation of the cyclonic filter. The cyclonic filter is mounted within the filter/separator system such that when the fluid flowing in the filter system comes into contact with the spin filter plate the flow of the fluid is oriented into cyclonic motion thereby creating vortex. Due to the cyclonic motion of the fluid and the vortex, heavy suspended particles in the fluid are pushed at the periphery and are extracted from there. Since the spin filter plate reduces the turbulence the flow of the fluid is more laminar in cyclonic motion.

[0013] Figure la, Figure lb illustrates a cyclonic spin filter plate, in accordance with the present disclosure. The spin filter plate 100 comprises an inner core surface 102 and an outer peripheral surface 104. The inner core surface 102 may further comprise a circular ring 106 and an outer circular ring 108. The spin filter plate 100, may further comprise a plurality of gradient surface 110. The gradient surface 110 may be sandwiched between the outer peripheral surface 104 and the inner core surface 102. The outer peripheral surface 104 may further comprise a vertical surface 112, wherein the vertical surface 112 may further comprise a first end 116 and a second end 118. The first end 116 may be positioned such that it' s the first end that comes into contact with fluid or fluid facing end. The second end 118 is at distal position from the first end 116. Further in accordance with the present embodiment the plurality of gradient surface 110 may have gradient between the first end 116 and the second end 118, such that the gradient slope is high at first end 116 and gradually reduces towards the second end 118. The gradient angle for the plurality of gradient surface 110 may vary between 20 degree to 45 degree.

The plurality of ribs 120 may be parallel to the vertical surface 114 or each rib may be at a different angle with respect to the vertical surface 114. The plurality of ribs 120 and the plurality of gradient surface 110 provide cyclonic flow to the fluid along with directions and removing the turbulence from the fluid. [0015] In another embodiment, the spin filter plate 100 may be comprise an integral locking mechanism so as to lock the plate in the filter system.

[0016] Figure lc illustrates a cyclonic spin filter plate, in accordance with another exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure. The spin plate filter 100 as illustrated may further comprise a plurality of another ribs 114. The plurality of another ribs 114 may extend away from the gradient surface 110 in a perpendicular direction i.e. for e.g. from first end 116 towards second end 118. The plurality of another ribs 114 may be in opposite side to the plurality of ribs 120 on the gradient surface 110.

The plurality of another ribs 114 and the plurality of gradient surface 110 provide cyclonic flow to the fluid along with directions and removing the turbulence from the fluid.
