the process of separating substances by the use of a centrifuge.
Process of using a rotating machine to generate centrifugal force to separate substances of different densities, remove moisture, or simulate gravitational effects. It employs a large motor-driven apparatus with a long arm, at the end of which human and animal subjects, biological specimens, or equipment can be revolved and rotated at various speeds to study gravitational effects.

A clarification method using centrifugal force to strain and clarify the wort during its cooling stage and the finished beer prior to racking.
Process of separating lighter portions of a solution, mixture or suspension from heavier portion by centrifugal force. Usually accomplished in a centrifuge, which spins at very high speed.
The process of using a centrifuge to separate joined particles suspended in a liquid.
The use of rotational forces to separate liquids and solids.
Throughout the text, the rate of centrifugation has been expressed as the Relative Centrifugal Force, denoted by ''. The formula is: where RPM is the rotor speed in revolutions per minute, and where Radius (cm) is the radius of the rotor arm, to the bottom of the tube, in centimetres. It may be necessary to calculate the RPM required to achieve a given value of , with a particular rotor. The formula is:.
A method of separating solids from liquids using rotational forces.
Separating substances by spinning them in a cylinder.
a process by which liquid samples are spun around at high speed to cause the accelerated settling of particles in suspension.
Process of separating two substances of differing densities by high speed spinning to create centrifugal force. Typically used to separate suspended particles from liquid such as the pelleting of cells or DNA. It is also used to provide the necessary force to create trans-membrane pressure to drive solutions through an ultrafiltration membrane in a centrifugal device.
Centrifugation is a process that involves the use of the centripetal force for the separation of mixtures, used in science labs. In chemistry and biology, increasing the effective gravitational force on a test tube so as to more rapidly and completely cause the precipitate ("pellet") to gather on the bottom of the tube. The solution ("supernatant") is then either quickly decanted from the tube without disturbing the precipitate or withdrawn by means of a medicine dropper.
