Gravity-driven separators are broadly used in various engineering applications to remove particulate matters from gaseous fluids to meet legislation demands. This study represents a detailed numerical investigation of a two-phase cyclone separator using the Eulerian–Lagrangian gas flow method. The turbulence is modelled using the Reynolds stress model (RSM). The technique has successfully predicted the typical trends and variations seen in such gas separators with an average error of approximately 5.5%. Also, the computed results show a realistic agreement with the experimental measurements.
