Cyclone separator is a device used to collect dust, dirt & particulate matter. These are the devices that employ centrifugal force generated by spinning the gas stream to separate the foreign material from the carrier gas. In general cases the carrier gas is taken as atmospheric air having room temperature. The “Lapple” type of the cyclone separator is widely used. Blower is needed for the working of cyclone separator, optimization on the cyclone’s operation has been a need to reduce the energy consumption. A review for the literature was undertaken for cyclone separator to find out the innovation, development in the technology of the cyclone separator until now. Most of the literature’s on cyclone separator focus on design, working, its various types of models and recent work. The recent work on cyclone separator includes its Computational Fluid Dynamics (commonly known CFD) analysis work. As the computation cost has decreased considerably the model optimization has increased at a high rate, many software available for optimization.
