Abstract

The present invention relates to a method for size-fractionating particles, comprising subjecting a fluid containing the particles to shearing, thereby inducing particle size segregation, and dividing the fluid in at least one fraction enriched in particles with a relatively high size and at least one fraction enriched in particles with a relatively low size. The invention further relates to an apparatus for carrying out a method according to the invention.
