The ratio between G and g is referred to as relative centrifugal force (RCF). RCF = F . m g . c . 6b are for general cases (not attaining solid-body motion) and for solid-body rotation, respectively. 6c,d) 10 -7 (RPM)ZD, v -- ~R For the case of a bowl with a diameter of 500 mm rotating at 6000 rpm, the G/g ratio becomes 10,061 or G = 10,061 g. 6d. Small diameter centrifuges operate at lower capacity but at higher G, whereas large diameter centrifuges operate at higher capacity but at lower G. The upper limit for each type of centrifuge is only nominal.

3 respectively. 65, the separation velocity is reduced by 40% as the solids volume increases to 10%. 9 could have corresponded very well to 60-90% bulk volume (including both solids and liquid volume) depending on packing density. Solids concentration by bulk volume is a more readily available index as it is measured readily in practice using a rotating test tube centrifuge spinning for an arbitrary pre-fixed time duration. 3, the reduction in settling velocity due to hindered settling as compared with discrete Stokes' settling is less for a given solids concentration.

This allows both small and large particles to settle at the same speed, also known as zone settling, without discriminating the size of individual particles. 1). The former finds applications such as clarification of waste slurries, while the latter finds applications such as classification of valuable fine-particle slurries for the coating and pigment market. Dense thick slurry forms networking as particle concentration and the degree of aggregation both increase in a suspension. Under gravitational body force the solid network or matrix compresses downward (compaction) while liquid expresses counter-currently upward (expression).
