A colour photograph of a Burton brand, basket centrifuge. This photograph was likely taken at Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd's factory in Coburg in the 1960s. A note on the back of the image says this centrifuge was 'used to collect photographic emulsion left over once hydrolised'.

This image is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
