Steady Flow Centrifuge
This apparatus enables the separation of the filler contained in the bitumen/toluene
solution. The bitumen/solvent/filler mixture is poured into the rotating beaker and the filler is deposited as the bitumen and solvent are drained off. The rotation speed is 11,000 rpm. The apparatus can also be used with conglomerates that have been coarsely dissolved by immersion in solvent. Two sieves (Mesh100 &200), to be placed inside the funnel for complete seperation are supplied and three cups.
