Cyclones are used as separation devices to remove solid particles from a gas or a liquid.
The cyclone shown in the animation below is a typical high-efficiency cyclone.
The animation shown here shows the precessing of the vortex for a real time of 23 ms.
The vortex and the walls of the cyclone are colored by vorticity magnitude.
CFD simulation and visualization with Ansys Fluent.

More details about the simulation can be found in Advances in Cyclone Modelling Using Unstructured Grids.
