centrifuge blueprint

Anybody have one handy?

Im interested in building one from scratch.

Mostly interested in rotor designs. Not too worried about the housing. Thinking i will try the pressure cooker idea for the housing/body of the unit.

So yeah... again, mostly just need an idea to start from on the rotor before i stuff some material in a lathe.

If it works out to a pretty quick cut time with little to no problems, i might be able to knock out more and sell them cheap. 1k+ for a fuge is retarded.

If it pans out... would there be any interest from you guys?

I've been tempted to build a centrifuge that operates entirely on 12vdc. A mobile processor for production on the go like long road trips....

I have a large pressure cooker and a motor. I would be interested in a less expensive fuge if one was available.

I really like this design myself:
Simple Centrifuge ...putting a centrifuge in every garage!
If you watch one of the videos, there's a blueprint/cutaway view of it; you could easily whip up some actual blueprints with that and measuring the picture(Hint: the overall stock size used for that appears to be 9" diameter)

I'm intending to do this myself one of these days, but I've got to get some 9" aluminum cyl myself.

I was using an old cream seperator for awhile, but it was just to slow and gravity is still free last I checked, so I quit.

i did the gravity too, but you'd be amazed on what the c.f. pulls out. looks like black tar thats being extracted from the rotor. And the oil being spun was an amber gold color too

From there website:
If you REALLY want to build your own centrifuge,this is the key piece:
Includes:
-Rotor
-Seal and clamp
-Parts list for centrifuge
Includes: -Machined Rotor, -Clamp Bushing for 5/8" Dia motor shaft (no key), 5/8" Shaft Collar, 5/8" Dia Viton shaft seal.
Instructions to build an enclosure and basic layout are available here: Download Designs
