Highlights •Mini-hydrocyclones performance in removing small-size microplastics (MPs) is investigated.•Mini-hydrocyclones are applicable to removing small-size MPs.•Trade-off between separation efficiency and concentration ratio is observed.•Diaeters of spigot and vortex finder affect the removal performance.•Behaviours of small-size MPs are explained with respect to flow properties.
