a_habib is on a distinguished road
I'm having a problem with snappyHexMesh, It's not using the triSurfaces and there is no cells to remove, it types these in the very begging:
Not all entries in refinementSurfaces dictionary were used. The following entries were not used : 1(cylinder.stl)
Not all entries in refinementRegions dictionary were used. The following entries were not used : 1(cylinder.stl)
And my *.stl file where made by SOLIDWORKS (ASCII format) in the first time and by FreeCAD (ASCII format) in the second one
the surface is closed (I cheked that) and in the center of the background mesh (I saw that in paraview) and have one patch named cylinder .. like this

solid cylinder
facet normal 0.998468 0.055333 0.000000
outer loop
vertex 0.198750 0.024106 0.065000
vertex 0.198750 0.024106 0.005000
vertex 0.166386 0.015976 0.069833
endsolid cylinder
