Title: Method and apparatus for separating gas mixture by centrifuging

Abstract

A process and a centrifuge are provided for separating a gas mixture having different molecular weights into a light fraction and a heavy fraction. The process comprises the steps of introducing the gas mixture into at least one intermediate space formed between at least two concentric rotors, and separating the gas mixture into a light fraction and a heavy fraction by subjecting the gas mixture to centrifugal forces by rotation of the concentric rotors. The centrifuge comprises at least two concentric rotors rotatably in a housing and defining between them one or more intermediate spaces, means for driving the rotors, and means for introducing the gas mixture into the or each intermediate space, whereby in operation the mixture is subjected to centrifugal forces.
