Cyclone is widely adopted in the vacuum cleaner, because of the simple structure, the high dust collection efficiency and its transparency feature, which can be shown to the customer. At past times, cyclone performance was represented by collection efficiency, flow rate, pressure drop etc. At recent times the noise problem is getting important as cyclone comes into home-appliances. In this paper, pressure drop of cyclone and it's noise were measured at the variation of the cyclone structure and the main sources of cyclone peak noise was found by experimental and numerical analysis. In addition, the structure for peak noise reduction was suggested and it is beneficial both pressure drop and noise reduction.
