Centrifuge Question

Main Question or Discussion Point

I am building a centrifuge to separate solid particles from oil and would like to be able to calculate the separation time for given particles at various relative “G” forces. From what I know (or think I know) the forces involved are the mass of the particle (relative to the oil) multiplied by the relative “G” acting outwards and the friction caused by the oil acting against it. If I know the viscosity of the oil, the mass and surface area of the particles and the distance they have to travel to become lodged how do I calculate the time for a given relative “G”?

Any help much appreciated

Cheers

Ian
