Fair Physical Condition, but Ready to Spin

Where some people can only see scuffs, scratches, and dents, we see character from years of reliable service. To put it simply, this centrifuge has some cosmetic wear from the years of service, but it can still reliably deliver the performance you need.

Fully-Tested by our in-house Centrifuge Specialist

Our technicians inspected and tested this centrifuge to confirm its functionality, guaranteeing it will hold a steady low temperature during operation at top speeds. The refrigeration system was able to keep the rotor chamber at 0C during operation at 19000 rpm which exceeds the manufacturer specification of +2C. This centrifuge is configured for 208V power. The following tests were performed:

- Tested centrifuge to 19,000 rpm: PASSED
- Tested refrigeration, held at 0C: PASSED
- Tested lid functionality: PASSED
- Tested control panel: PASSED
- Tested brake: PASSED
- Tested timer: PASSED

Recharged 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
