MIXTURE SEPARATION METHODS
Sieving allows mixtures of solids of different sizes to be separated.
In this techinque, suspended solid fragments are extracted from a liquid.
Sedimentation and decantation
This techinque, based on the difference of densities, allows the components of a suspension to be separated.
Centrifuging and decantation
Centrifuging is method of separating the components of a suspension or a liquid colloid according to their density, by spinning at a high velocity.
A separating funnel allows the liquid components of heterogeneous mixtures with different densities to be separated.
This method allows mixtures of similarly sizes solids to be separated by density.
This method allows the separation of mixtres of solid components of similarly sized particles.
This method allows the components with magnetic properties, to be separated from the rest of the components.
This method is used tto separate solution of solids in liquid solvent.
This method allows solutions of liquids with different boilling points to be separated.
Thistechinque allows the components to be separated according to the speed at wich they travel thought an absorbent surface, such as a piece of paper
