Title: METHOD OF CENTRIFUGE OPERATION

Abstract

A method of operating a centrifual separator is described which produces more efficient separatlon of fluid mixtures, particularly gaseous isotopic mixtures, and is applicable to centrifuge caseades, The method comprises passing a first stream of the fluid in an axial direction through the central portion of a centrifuge rotor, passing a second stream through the peripheral portion of the rotor countercurrent to the first stream, and rotating the rotor to effect separation. Besldes the advantage of more efficient separation, the method enables smaller centrifuges to be used and centrifuge cascades to be subdivided into independently controllable units. (D.L.C.)
