The most common type used in industry is the horizontal decanter centrifuge . These tend to be able to operate continuously, processing anywhere between 10 and 200 cubic metres per hour.

Other applications include removing fats, oils and starches from liquid streams in food processing, and removing fine solids from slurries generated during oil drilling or chemical production.
The other place centrifuges are widely used is in laboratories . Various designs are available, including microcentrifuges, clinical centrifuges and ultracentrifuges. Some have refrigeration systems to keep the sample temperature constant.
