Broadbent G-Max beam centrifuges are installed in research facilities around the world. Our well-proven and highly respected beam centrifuge range is available in six sizes, from the GT2/0.5 to the large GT150/3.0.
Designed in conjunction with Sheffield University’s Centre for Energy, Infrastructure and Ground Research (CEIGR), the GT2 model is used primarily for undergraduate teaching and as a small-scale research tool.
The GT150/3.0 is a large-scale centrifuge capable of generating 200G on a 750kg payload. These units are typically located in a dedicated university laboratory or government research facility.
|Model type||Radius of swing platform (m)||Nominal payload radius (m)||Max payload dimension W x H x D (m)||Max G-tonne|
|GT2||0.5||0.44||0.08 x 0.16 x 0.12||2|
|GT6||0.75||0.66||0.17 x 0.3 x 0.18||6|
|GT50||2.0||1.70||0.6 x 0.8 x 0.9||50|
|GT75||2.5||2.2||0.6 x 0.8 x 1.32||75|
|GT150||3.0||2.6||1 x 0.9 x 1.2||150|
