From Inventing aviation

(Note: This patent is designated as an "importation". Antique script conventions are difficult, here, and reference is made to a granting "in favor of the Sr. Givymme". Again, legibility is difficult. Later material, of the firm category BE K, starting from 1916 and going back, is likely to be much more fruitful to us.)

Might well refer to the use of centrifugal force to purify sugar, patented by a Victor Van Goethem of Lembecq, Brabant, with agent Cuylits, in a few countries; see here and here (maybe the same) and here.

(This is all fairly definitely the case, with the patent being absolutely non-aero. We were intrigued by the patent's title, and the fair chance of pertinence to later innovations relative to "centrifuge"(centrifugal), as an elsewhere moderately occurring adjective.)
