Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / Granulationsverfahren
German term or phrase: Zyklonabscheider
A list item without much context, except that the company is involved with processing granular materials.

agree  Andrej: Noch ein paar Varianten: cyclone air classifier, cyclonic separator, cyclone settler. Ich wuerde wohl aber "cyclone separator" schreiben, weil das eben neutral ist.
