During the centrifugation process, heat is generated by the friction with the air in the chamber and centrifuge rotor. It is possible for heat to affect the centrifugation cycle. However, there are some processes that use centrifugation that is controlled at a certain temperature.
A heated centrifuge is used in the processes and applications mentioned above. Heated centrifuges work in the same manner as typical centrifuges. They also come in different sizes. One feature that makes heated centrifuges stand out is its ability to function at high temperatures.
Heated Centrifuge: Safety Reminders to Keep in Mind
To ensure the safe use of a heated centrifuge, keep the following safety tips in mind:
- The device is built based on recognized and state-of-the-art safety regulations. When handled improperly, users can be subjected to life-threatening danger. Heated centrifuges should only be used for their intended purpose. In addition, it should only be used when it is in a safe working condition.
- Make sure the centrifuge is installed on a stable base.
- While the centrifuge is running, no dangerous substances, objects, or persons may be within the safety margin of 300mm.
- Suspensions, accessories, and rotors that have traces of mechanical damage or corrosion should not be used anymore.
- Prior to the initial operation of your centrifuge, you need to read and pay attention to the operating instructions. Only those who have read and fully understood the operating instructions will be allowed to operate the device.
- The centrifuge should not be knocked or moved during operation.
- In the event of an emergency or faulty release, make sure you don’t touch the rotor before it stops running.
