Beam centrifuges

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.
