PARAMETERS OPTIMIZATION AND EXPERIMENT ON CYCLONE SEPARATION AND CLEANING SYSTEM FOR BUCKWHEAT
Based on the material characteristics of buckwheat, the cyclone separation and cleaning test bench were designed. The cleaning rate and loss rate of the buckwheat separation and cleaning by the influencing factors of the investigation were studied through single factor and orthogonal tests. The single-factor test results show that the cyclone separation and cleaning performance is better when the speed range of the suction fan is 800~1200 r/min, the speed range of the feeding fan is 600~1200 r/min, and the length range of the suction pipe is 100~250 mm. The regression equation model of the cleaning rate and loss rate was constructed, and the response surface analysis of the test influencing factors and their interaction was carried out. The results show that the speed of the suction fan has the most significant influence on the cleaning rate and loss rate, followed by the speed of the feeding fan and the length of the suction pipe in the separation cylinder has the least effect. By optimizing and solving multi-objective parameters of the regression equation model, reasonable experimental parameters are obtained. The appropriate speed of the suction fan is 1055 r/min, the appropriate speed of the feeding fan is 600 r/min, and the proper length of the suction pipe in the separation cylinder is 175 mm. The cleaning rate and the loss rate of the cyclone separation and cleaning system were 94.78% and 1.67%, respectively.
