Kendro Sorvall RC-5C Plus Refrigerated Floor Centrifuge -- Meets Specs Across the Board

A time-tested and proven high-speed centrifuge, this Kendro Sorvall RC-5C Plus has been thoroughly inspected by our technical staff and tested to confirm it reaches 20,000 rpm while holding at 3°C. It's in good physical condition with only some minor dents and scuffing on the lid.

With our 90-day warranty and knowledgeable testing, you can buy with confidence knowing you’ll get a fully functional centrifuge that will work on day one and will be protected against unexpected issues.

Want to add a rotor to your RC-5C Plus?

This centrifuge doesn’t come with a rotor, but we have plenty of compatible rotors in stock so please don’t hesitate to contact us about adding a rotor to your purchase.

Speed and Cooling Meet Manufacturer Specification

Our technicians inspected and tested this centrifuge, guaranteeing it will hold a low temperature steadily during operation at top speeds. The refrigeration system was able to keep the rotor chamber at 3°C. We believe that had the ambient temperature been lower, the centrifuge would have exceeded the manufacturer specification of 2°C.

This centrifuge is configured for 208V.

Testing and services performed:

- Tested centrifuge to 21,000 rpm with no problems
- Refrigeration held at 3°C during operation at 20,000 rpm
- Centrifuge exterior cleaned, sanded, and repainted
- Temperature calibration verified to be accurate
- Motor brushes replaced
- Recharged refrigeration system

Full Recharge of the Refrigeration System

To ensure the refrigeration is operating at manufacturer specification, our technician performs a full evacuation of the refrigeration system and refills it with new refrigerant. The recharge process involves the following:

- Vent system of refrigerant
- Apply 250-micron vacuum to test for leaks, remove debris, and boil off moisture in lines
- Nitrogen purge three times to clear lines for preventative maintenance
- Refill system with new refrigerant
- Confirm system is operating to manufacturer specification

Top-Notch Cosmetic Servicing

Our servicing of this centrifuge didn't stop with function. We also thoroughly cleaned and sanded all four of the unit's side panels before applying a fresh coat of paint. Aside from some minor dents and scuffing on the lid, this centrifuge will leave our shop looking far better than your standard used Sorvall RC centrifuge. See photos.
