Ash-laden hot air from clinker in cement industry is being used to reduce water contain in coal, however it may contain large amount of ash even though it was treated by a preduster. This study investigated preduster performance as a cyclone separator in the cement industry by Computational Fluid Dynamic method. In general, the best performance of cyclone is it have relatively high efficiency with the low pressure drop. The most accurate and simple turbulence model, Reynold Average Navier Stokes (RANS), standard k-ϵ, and combination with Lagrangian model as particles tracking model were used to solve the problem. The measurement in simulation result are flow pattern in the cyclone, pressure outlet and collection efficiency of preduster. The applied model well predicted by comparing with the most accurate empirical model and pressure outlet in experimental measurement.
