In dairies the process of Centrifugation is used for this process. The milk to be skimmed is put in a closed container in big centrifuge machine. When the centrifuge machine is switched on, the milk starts rotating at a very high speed in this container. Due to this the milk separates into ‘cream’ and ‘skimmed milk’. The cream being lighter, floats over the skimmed milk and can be removed.
