Centrifuge in the sediment prep lab

A woman wearing a lab coat stands in front of a machine with 6 cylindrical holders, she is placing a bottle in a cylinder.

Detailed Description

We spin down a sample of sediment that's mixed with distilled water in a centrifuge. This separates the sediment from the water at the bottom of the sample bottle, and we pour off most of the water. This process removes dissolved salts.
