The second generation of the Robinson electrically heated centrifuge that operates from the vehicle's 12-volt system with a 4-place head, slide lid. Centrifuge features a circular design offering a high-efficiency unit that meets or exceeds the RCF requirements of API and ASTM. Includes rheostat control with an "off" position for a slow, smooth start and speed control. Top-entry motor removal for replacement without removing the centrifuge from its mountings. Motor mount plate with a ball bearing provides stabilizing support for the motor shaft. One-inch thick mounting feet to reduce casting failures. Slide open, two section lid, designed with a hole in the center so that the centrifuge RPM’s can be checked with a hand held tachometer with the centrifuge lid closed. This feature is especially efficient where room above the centrifuge is limited. This feature also reduces heat loss because it does
not require that the complete lid be open for the operator to insert and remove the samples from inside the centrifuge. A pre-heater section located in the front of the centrifuge for easy access to the operator. Flip-up pre-heater covers, with positive mechanical tension to keep the covers closed. Easy-to-grasp design for easy opening. Simplified method of testing the electrical components. Three independent electrical circuit design. Space-saver design because a separate heater is not required. A self-reset circuit breaker near the vehicle’s battery protects the centrifuge’s circuit, as well as the vehicle. When the vehicle is not running, an external contactor, wired to the ignition,prevents
the heaters from drawing energy from the battery. Dimensions: 23 1/2"L x 20"W x 11 1/2"H. Shipping weight: 60 lbs.
