Why Use a Centrifuge?

Centrifugation is a process used to separate or concentrate materials suspended in a liquid medium. It is a highly accelerated form of sedimentation, which uses gravity to separate particles heavier than the liquid medium. Centrifugal force accelerates this settling rate in an instrument called a centrifuge.

The centrifuge spins the material at high rotation speeds and uses centrifugal force to separate the particulate from the liquid. Centrifugal force can reach many thousand times that of gravity, quickly separating the liquid/solid material.

Centrifuges are used in a variety of scientific and technical applications. In some instances, the solid is waste. In other applications, such as some chemical manufacturing, the solid is the final product being harvested.
