Separation methods: separation in a centrifugal force field
As well as gravity, centrifugal force can also be used as the driving force for phase separation processes. The centrifugal force can be generated either by guiding the flow of the fluid, or by rotating vessels (centrifuges).
Continuous separation of emulsions.
Solid separation from gases using a cyclone.
Separation of solids from liquids by using a centrifugal force.
