Definizione

An effective mechanical means of removing solid from juice.1

Nota

Once-fashionable wine-making operation of clarification using a centrifuge. Occasionally used to clarify white grape juice before fermentation, the process is relatively expensive and lengthy. It is more effective when used to clarify new wines because of the greater difference in density between the yeast cells and the liquid than between the grape solids and the liquid.
[...] Because centrifuges are so expensive to buy and maintain, and because some wine-makers feel they submit wine to a physically shocking process, they are used relatively rarely nowadays.2

Contesto

Filtration and centrifugation can remove more than 90% of the fatty acids from must [...].3
