Manual Centrifuge

Use this Model Object when you need to represent the behavior of a manual centrifuge or multiple centrifuges. There can be one or more centrifuges automatically alternating cycles. The centrifuges can have Stat and Routine samples. The Stat samples process first. The system can have a dwell time, requiring the centrifuge to run if a specified time has elapsed, even if the full batch size isn’t complete

Where to Find the Model Object

The following model object can be found in the model objects directory:

  • Batching \ Manual Centrifuge

Difficulty Level

  • Ease of Use: Easy
  • Ease of Modification: Moderate

How to Use the Model Object

  1. Open Your Model: Open your model or create a new blank model.
  2. Insert the Model Object into Your Model: Locate the model object Manual Centrifuge and select the insert button.
    1. Move the cursor to the point of insertion and left mouse-click. The upper left corner of the model object will be inserted at the location of the mouse-click.
  3. Connect to Your Model:
    1. Connect entity arrivals from your model to Centrifuge Queue1.

      from your model to Manual Centrifuge

    2. Create a percentage route from the Black Box to the rest of your model.

      from Manual Centrifuge to rest of your model

  4. Define Values:
    1. Define the name of the entities going to Centrifuge Queue1 to be named Stat or Routine.

      update names in manual centrifuge
      This is just an example, you may have a different way of naming entities to Stat or Routine

    2. Define the values for scenario parameters starting with s_Cent based on the information provided under the heading Scenario Parameters below. The values for these Scenario Parameters must be provided to each entity before the simulation start.
