What is Centrifugal Sedimentation?
The centrifugal sedimentation method determines particle size based on the speed of particles moving due to centrifugal force (settling velocity). When particles are subjected to centrifugal force, bigger particles settle quicker and smaller ones settle slower.The settling velocity is determined using the particle's distance travelled (from the beginning location to the detecting point, as illustrated in the image below) and the time necessary for the movement. Particles may be measured while being classified.Centrifugal sedimentation of solid contaminants is used as an alternative to filtering or in conjunction with it.
Which factors have an influence on centrifugation?
• Density of both samples and solution;
• Displacement distance of particles;
• Rotational velocity.
Centrifugal sedimentation can be accomplished using either hydrocyclones or centrifuges!
A centrifuge is a device that uses a rotor to separate particles from a solution. When the speeds and dimensions of a commercial unit are evaluated, the magnitude of the available centrifugal force – the product of the particle's mass and acceleration – is clearly recognized.
There are two types of centrifuge procedures:
Preparative, which is used to separate certain particles, and analytical, which includes assessing the physical characteristics of the sedimenting particles.
In a centrifuge, a centrifugal force is delivered to each particle in the sample while the rotor spins; the particle will then sediment at a pace proportionate to the centrifugal force supplied to it. The sedimentation rate of each particle is also affected by the viscosity of the sample solution and the physical qualities of the particles.
At constant centrifugal force and liquid viscosity, a particle's sedimentation rate is proportional to its size (molecular weight) and the difference between particle density and solution density.
The Stoke’s Law equation
The rate of separation of particles in a suspension by gravitational force is primarily determined by particle size and density. Particles of higher density or bigger size normally travel at a quicker rate and will eventually separate from particles of lower density or smaller size. Stoke's law, which governs the movement of a sphere in a gravitational field, can explain this sedimentation of particles. The sedimentation velocity is calculated using five factors in the equation.
