A centrifuge is a piece of equipment that puts a substance in rotation around a fixed axis in order for the centrifugal force to separate a fluid from a fluid or from a solid substance. Generally, a motor drives the rotary motion of the sample. There are many different kinds of centrifuges, often for very specialised purposes. ...more on Wikipedia about "Centrifuge"
The Centrifuge Accommodations Module (CAM) of the International Space Station provides controlled gravity for experiments and the capability to: ...more on Wikipedia about "Centrifuge Accommodations Module"
The gas centrifuge is a hyper- centrifuge used to produce enriched uranium. It requires far less energy to achieve the same separation than the older gaseous diffusion process, which it has largely replaced. ...more on Wikipedia about "Gas centrifuge"
The ultracentrifuge is a centrifuge optimized for spinning a rotor at very high speeds, capable of generating acceleration as high as 1,000,000 G (9,800 km/s²) There are two kinds of ultracentrifuges, the preparative and the analytical ultracentrifuge. The second, however, is more theoretically important and we will focus on the discussion of the analytical ultracentrifuge. Theodor Svedberg invented the analytical ultracentrifuge in 1923, and won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1926 for his invention. ...more on Wikipedia about "Ultracentrifuge"
The vacuum ultracentrifuge was invented by Edward Greydon Pickels. It was his contribution of the vacuum which allowed a reduction in friction generated at high speeds. Vacuum systems also enabled the maintenance of constant temperature. ...more on Wikipedia about "Vacuum ultracentrifuge"
A washing machine is a machine designed to clean laundry, i.e. clothing and other household textiles such as towels and sheets. The term is generally applied only to machines that use water as the primary cleaning solution, as opposed to dry cleaning which uses alternative cleaning fluids and is generally performed by specialist businesses. ...more on Wikipedia about "Washing machine"
The Zippe-type centrifuge is a device designed to collect Uranium-235. It was developed in the Soviet Union by a team of 60 German scientists working in detention, captured after World War II. The centrifuge is named after the team's lead experimenter, Gernot Zippe. ...more on Wikipedia about "Zippe-type centrifuge"
