The paper considers the secondary-flow in a liquid-gas mixture in a cyclone separator. By means of a momentum integral method, an engineering approximation to the secondary heavy fluid flow rate is obtained which makes use of an experimental velocity profile determined by ter Linden. This flow rate approximation is physically realistic and is partially verified in the laboratory. Tests were run on a separator to determine the effect of the variation of certain operating conditions and geometric factors on the separation of a liquid-gas mixture. The effect of these variations on the efficiency of separation and pressure drop across the separator as functions of the Reynolds and Weber numbers is presented.
