10 Reasons a Disc Centrifuge Cannot Reach Operating Speed

A disc stack centrifuge uses the centrifugal force it generates to separate the liquid from solid and liquid from the liquid. The centrifugal force exerted is a direct function of the bowl’s rotating speed. A disc centrifuge cannot reach operating speed due to several reasons. In this article, we will explore the causes and relevant […]

Can a centrifuge separate salt from water?

A centrifuge cannot separate salt from water. Centrifuges use the force of gravity to affect the separation of solids from liquids. Salt dissolves in water to form a solution. The centrifugal force exerted by a centrifuge separates immiscible phases such as sand from water but not miscible phases such as salt in water. Why can’t […]
