Use of centrifuge
Jul 26, 2018

A centrifuge is a machine that USES centrifugal force to separate the components of a mixture of liquid and solid particles or liquid and liquid. Centrifuges are used to separate solid particles from liquids in suspension, or to separate two insoluble liquids of different densities (e.g., cream from milk). It can also be used to remove liquids from wet solids, such as washing clothes with a washing machine. Special overspeed tube separator can also separate gas mixtures of different densities. Some sedimentation centrifuges can also classify solid particles according to their density or size by using the characteristics of different density or particle size.
