A centrifuge is equipment used to separate components of a mixture based on their density. It works by rapidly rotating a container of the mixture, causing the components to separate due to the centrifugal force created. The denser components move to the bottom of the container, while the less dense components move to the top.

Centrifuges play a critical role in geothermal sample testing by separating different components in geothermal samples, allowing for a more detailed and accurate analysis.
