    Separating mixed fluids (oil and water) with rotational (centrifugal) force

    Paulo Onarres

      Hi there,

       

      I'm trying to simulate a continuous stream centrifugal separator. Basically, I want to have one inlet tube with some concentration of oil and water, and two outlet surfaces for just oil and just water. In order to achieve this separation, the entire system will be rotating at an RPM that allows for this quick separation.

       

      Is this possible? I've been trying to achieve this with no luck. I can't get the fluids to separate; the concentration just stays the same the whole time. I can provide my SW files or images if it makes it easier to understand my question.

       

      Thanks
