Centrifugation is a necessary step in many pharmaceutical and chemical production processes. These guidelines will help chemical engineers better understand the process of centrifuge selection.
Solid-liquid separation through centrifugation is often a crucial step to obtain the desired product after precipitation or crystallization. There are two types of centrifugation (also called dewatering or deliquoring): ﬁltering and sedimenting. This guide focuses mainly on ﬁltering centrifugation because it is the more common type of solid-liquid separation in chemical and pharmaceutical production applications.
