Germ Separation

Fluid-Quip’s germ separation liquid cyclone system designs are proven performers and require minimum floor space with maximum production. Our Germ Separation systems are designed to the individual needs of your site. 

With stainless steel, modular components, maintenance is minimal. Cyclone life is extended by spin-hardened stainless-steel construction. Cyclones are easily accessed.  Fluid-Quip quick disconnect couplings – an aluminum and stainless-steel design – make removal and replacement easy. This design
prevents corrosion and binding problems often experienced with other couplings.

Count on Fluid-Quip’s experienced engineers to design or retrofit your germ separation system to fit any process requirements.

GS6″ • GS8″ • GS9″ 


  • Cyclones are constructed of 1/8″ thick 316 Stainless Steel that has been work hardened by spinning to insure structural stiffness and long life.
  • Cyclone Heads are cast in 15-5 PH stainless steel to eliminate cracking prevalent in weld fabricated designs.
  • Fluid-Quip Quick Release Couplings with Couplings are of aluminum with stainless steel hinge pins to provide strength and durability while resisting corrosion and binding. Molded EPDM rubber seals provide strength and durability. Designed for full vacuum up to 150 psi (10.3 bars).
  • Cyclones are installed on a 316 or 304 stainless steel support structure designed to minimize vibration and floor space requirements
  • Each cyclone is installed on the outside of the system for easy accessibility.
  • Each Cyclone system includes tapered headers and pipe connecting underflow of first stage to feed second stage, permitting single pump operation.

Fluid Quip’s germ cyclones can be fitted into many different configurations to suit process needs. Germ Systems are usually fitted with 6″, 8″, or 9″ cyclones depending on the flow rate, and capacity. All capacities shown are average values. Please contact us today for accurate sizing.
