Sorvall RC-5C Plus Superspeed Refrigerated Floor Centrifuge - Cooling Beyond Specification

A time-tested and proven high-speed centrifuge, this Sorvall RC-5C Plus has been thoroughly inspected by our technical staff and tested to confirm it reaches 20,000 rpm while holding below 0°C during operation -- thus exceeding the manufacturer specification of +2°C.

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.

Reliable Speed and Cooling for your Samples

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 0°C during operation at 20,000 rpm which exceeds the manufacturer specification of +2°C.

This centrifuge is in good condition aside from some scratches on the side panels. There is some interior rusting, though it's mainly afflicting the bottom shelf and has been repainted. It is configured for 208V power.
