Experimental and numerical data of a AKW RWK-42L hydrocyclone. It includes granulometric and global efficiency, particle volume fraction, liquid ratio, and feed flow for several configurations of the equipment. It also includes a video from water-air transient simulation using Free Surface model to observe if the air-core is formed in this hydrocyclone. The video shows that an air-core is not formed, but a small amount of air is entrained from the overflow.
