an apparatus having containers for liquids arrayed around a central pivot and rotated at a high speed, thus generating centrifugal force on the liquid, and separating substances (such as particles of solid or globules of an immiscible liquid) mixed together in suspension within the liquid. Suspensions which would settle only very slowly or not at all under gravity can be made to separate quickly in such a device.
a machine that rotates (spins) rapidly and uses centrifugal force to separate substances of different densities. You've used a centrifuge before. Have you ever watched a washing machine on spin cycle? A washing machine uses centrifugal force in the spin cycle to separate the water from your clothes.
high-speed spinning device used during the processing and washing of sperm for artificial insemination or ART procedures. Separates sperm from the semen using centrifugal force.
an instrument used to spin tubes to separate solutions into different phases (liquid or solid). In this example, the red blood cells and other blood components are "spun out" of the blood, creating two layers in the tube: components below and serum above.
A rapidly rotating cylinder that can be used for enrichment of uranium. The spinning cylinder concentrates the heavier isotope (U-238) or uranium hexafluoride gas along the clinder's walls, while the lighter isotope (U-235) concentrates at the center of the cylinder, where it can be drawn off separately.
Process of thickening or dewatering solids using equipment that applies centrifugal force to separate solids and liquids.
A centrifuge is a rapidly spinning device for the purpose of separating out mixed materials. It has found in use in the winery as it may be used to clarify the must. It may also be used to separate out fractions of the liquid must, which has led to its use as a dealcoholisation tool. Also known as a spinning cone.
A machine that spins things around in circles.
A machine using centrifugal force produced by high-speed rotation for separating materials of different densities. Applied to Diesel engine fuels and lubricating oils to remove moisture and other extraneous materials.
A spinning cylinder that uses centrifugal force to separate isotopes in gaseous form; used to enrich uranium.
an apparatus that uses centrifugal force to separate particles from a suspension
rotate at very high speed in order to separate the liquids from the solids
a continuous-feed unit in which sludge is accelerated against the the inside of a rotating bowl
a device that uses centrifugal force to separate two or more substances of different density or mass from each other
a machine that puts a given substance or object into circular motion at a high rate of rotation
a machine that rapidly spins whatever is inside
a machine that whirls materials around and breaks up their densities
a machine whic employs centrifugal (or spinning) force to attain high rates of sedimentation or filtration in order to separate a solid from a liquid
a piece of equipment that separates a fluid from either another fluid or a solid substance by pulling the substance in a circular motion
a piece of laboratory equipment that applies centrifugal force to a sample
a rapidly rotating cylinder that can be used to enrich uranium for use as nuclear bomb fuel
a rotating device used to separate materials of different mass which are suspended in a medium
A device that spins a sample around a central axis at a high rate of speed that creates a centrifugal force. It's used to separate mixtures of suspended material.
an apparatus that spins fluid to separate cells
A dewatering device relying on centrifugal force to separate particles of varying density such as water and solids.
Machine for separating by centrifugal force the heavier components from the lighter components of a liquid solution, dispersion, or emulsion.
A machine consisting of a rotating container in which substances of different densities may be separated by centrifugal force.
Clarifying the wine through the use of centrifugal force of varying degrees. This is most often done in conjunction with other methods of clarification such as racking and filtration. It is more common to large production wineries than small ones.
An apparatus consisting essentially of a compartment spun about a central axis to separate contained materials of different specific gravities, or to separate colloidal particles suspended in a liquid.
(Noun) A machine that uses a high-speed circular motion (centrifugal force) to separate solids from liquids, or different layers in a liquid (e.g., milk and cream).(Verb) To apply a centrifugal force in order to separate solids from liquids, or different layers in a liquid.
A type of equipment used for dewatering: Centrifuges use rapid rotation of a fluid mixture inside a rigid vessel: The many designs of centrifuges include solid bowl, basket, and disc-stack.
a machine that uses centrifugal force to separate substances of different densities, to remove moisture, or to simulate gravitational effects
an apparatus used for the separation of substances by the application of centrifugal force generated by whirling at a high rate of rotation a vessel containing a fluid in which the substances are suspended
To spin in order to separate the light and heavier particulates in a fluid sample; a machine for performing this procedure.
a device that spins test tubes really fast to separate cells from a liquid medium. The cells, which are more dense, sink to the bottom.
A machine that separates particles according to their size and density by spinning them at varying speeds.
A rotating vessel for uranium enrichment. The heavier U238 isotopes in the UF6 gas tend to concentrate at the walls of the centrifuge as it spins. Scopes are placed inside the centrifuge to selectively separate the U238 and U235 isotopes.
A way of clarifying beer by spinning it to remove unwanted solids.
A centrifuge is a device that rotates at various speeds about a fixed, central point. It can separate liquids from solids or liquids of different densities by way of the centrifugal force resulting from its rotation.
A device which spins or whirls test tubes at high speeds.
a device that separates solid material, sludges or oil from liquid effluents by rapid rotation
A mechanical device that uses centrifugal or rotational forces to separate solids from liquids.
A machine using centrifugal force for separating substances of different densities, for removing moisture or for stimulating gravity effects.
Machine, which spins and gives a centrifugal force to an attached object. Machine using centrifugal force and the difference in densities of material to separate those materials.
A machine that separates materials with different densities by spinning them at high speed. Used in sperm washing.
A centrifuge is a piece of equipment, generally driven by a motor, that puts an object in rotation around a fixed axis, applying force perpendicular to the axis. The centrifuge works using the sedimentation principle, where the centripetal acceleration is used to separate substances of greater and less density. There are many different kinds of centrifuges, including those for very specialised purposes.
