The seventh lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Centrifugal Separation covers both sedimenting and filtering centrifuges as well as hydrocyclones. Adaptation of the gravity settling and conventional filtration models, to account for the conceptual centrifugal acceleration, is included. Examples of industrial equipment for centrifugal separation are included.
This material is suitable for HND, BSc, BEng, MEng, and MSc levels.
