tiny bowl style centrifuge? Answered

im trying to figure out whether this will work or not, but i cant get all the math together. i want to either A: make an attachment for my food processor to make it a bowl style centrifuge. or use a hdd motor and a brushless esc. my food processor is rated for 1750 rpms, and i figure enough room for a six inch diameter bowl. 

the whole purpose of this is to use this for my algae bioreactor  as an algae filter. can you get enough force out of either of these to separate algae from water.

Feel the thickness of the enclosure and consider how strong the bowl Must be.

While you may get sufficient rpm from your processor, attaching it to the motor shaft could prove problematic.

I thought most people filtered algae from water?
