In all the countries, the cause of air pollution are several, one of the major contributing factors being automobiles' exhaust. Today, there are millions of vehicles allover the world. There has been a rapid increase in vehicle numbers in the world. The import of technologies and transport policy we pursued, are the most important reasons for this development. The main pollutant from internal combustion engines are carbondioxide(CO2), unburned hydrocarbons(UHC), oxides if nitrogen(NOX), lead and carbonmonaxide(CO) and other particulate emissions[Haagen-Smit (1952)]. Because of the pollutant of engines in the atmosphere causes harmful to the human. Cyclonic separator is a dust collector which can be used to collect particles from engine exhaust. In the current study, with the help of this program an analytical study of the effect of variables such as cyclone diameter, number in parallel, Inlet gas velocity and exhaust gas temperature on particle cut and pressure drop of the cyclone has been made.
