From professional dealer. 90 day warranty.
AdID: 14319

Availability: In stock


Tested & Verified Sorvall Refrigerated Floor Centrifuge - Protected by 90-Day Warranty

Tested and with functional, this Sorvall RC-5C Plus Superspeed floor centrifuge
offers reliable spinning for the lab with simpler centrifugation needs.

Was it tested?


Though its refrigeration system does not reach manufacturer cooling
specifications, this RC-5C still cools to -1°C during a run and can reach -6°C
outside of a run.

This centrifuge spun at 19k rpm (rotor max) with no issues.

We also confirmed that all buttons, switches, and options are fully operational.

How was it serviced?

Our centrifuge specialist replaced its condenser fan motor with one from a
non-functioning unit and replaced a broken trim handle on the interface panel. He also blew dust out of the machine’s internals.

Recharged Refrigeration System

To ensure the refrigeration is operating at manufacturer specification, our
technician performs a full evacuation of the refrigeration system and refills
the system 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

How’s it look?

It’s in fairly good condition. There’s some missing paint and minor dents on
the back panel, but the rest of the chassis has only occasional scuffs and
signs of usage.

What’s Included?

This centrifuge comes packaged with a power cable.

A rotor and adapters will have to be acquired by the end user.
