3D printing could become a new standard for hydrocyclonic microfilters

Hydrocyclones are devices used across industry for separating particles from a liquid. Example applications include water treatment, air purification, and blood plasma separation – an essential step in disease diagnosis. Noting difficulties in making these devices on a microfluidic scale – working with microscopic molecules – researchers from KU Leuven Campus Kulak , Belgium, Macquarie University and the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia, have proposed 3D printing as an alternative fabrication technique. 3D Printing Industry spoke to Dr. Majid E Warkiani, corresponding author on the 3D printed hydrocyclone study, and Principal Investigator of the Warkiani Group at […]
