A centrifuge is a device, which employs a high rotational speed to separate components of different densities. The principle of a centrifuge is based via buoyancy. A component with a higher density would fall to the bottom of a mixture, while the less dense component would be suspended above it.
The main benefit of the centrifuge is in the speed of the process. This process is generally reserved for situations where oil recovery is the main priority and the quality of residual solids is less of a concern.
