The Sorvall/Dupont RT6000B feature a closed-loop speed control and have a seethrough chamber door that allows rotor calibration and visual inspection of a run in progress. The chamber door is counterbalanced for easy opening and safe closing. The lid latch is locked manually by turning the door release knob counterclockwise to the LOCKED position, then mechanically an interlock engages when the rotor begins spinning to prevent the chamber door from being opened during operation. The gyro-action, selfcentering drive has a diamond hex-shaped drive spindle which assures proper seating of rotors. The centrifuges also have a slow-start feature that slowly accelerates the rotor from 0 to 600rpm.*
The RT6000B combines the features of the tabletop centrifuge and those of the larger refrigerated centrifuge in a compact tabletop instrument. It is similar to other SORVALL® Tabletop Centrifuges, with an added refrigeration system that consists of an evaporator/ rotor chamber and a low-temperature condensing unit. The system is designed to maintain temperature within 1°C, while in the operating range of -5°C to +25°C.
