The cyclone separator is industrial equipment that is in use for a long time. Because of its industrial importance, a lot of extensive research work has been done. This paper discusses the efficiency of cyclones by considering the pressure loss and collection efficiency (cutoff diameter). The simulation of fluid-dust flow field in a cyclone is carried out using computational studies. The gas flow rate and temperature and geometrical parameters governing the efficiency of cyclone are the focus of this study. In this paper, the influence of the geometry on flow field pattern and performance of the tangential inlet cyclone separators are analyzed using computational work. The current work is carried out in three steps. First phase is dedicated to study the Stairmand's optimized design to appreciate the pressure and speed fluctuations. This study if followed by examining the cyclone separator by varying the inlet width and height; and the cyclone total height. Finally, mathematical study to determine the efficiency of the dust separator is done.
