Does anyone understand the different RPMs in centrifuges that will separate liquids from solids, such as Sea Salt out of Sea Water?

This isn't what you're asking for, but it's your only option for using centrifuges:

You can google "separating mixtures" but saltwater is a solution where the salt is dissolved into the water and you need to evaporate off the water to get pure salt.  It is not a "suspension" of materials so you cannot just centrifuge it out to separate the salt.
