Preventative Maintenance Schedule

Category: Care & Maintenance
Topic: Preventative Maintenance

Most facilities have a pre-determined schedule of maintenance for the different categories of equipment. Hettich recommends cleanings and inspections of all Hettich equipment be conducted at regular intervals. For optimal results, Hettich suggest following the attached Preventative Maintenance Schedule.

During a normal weekly inspection, the following parts are cleaned and inspected: centrifuge bowl and seal, the rotor, buckets, motor shaft and inside/outside surface of the centrifuge. The rubber seal, rotor, buckets and motor shaft are lubricated monthly and the rotor is secured on a weekly basis.

Frequent cleaning and inspections should be part of good laboratory practices. Proper cleaning will allow for clear viewing during an inspection of wear and tear on critical points on the rotor and buckets. For specific Operational Qualifications, or O.Q.'s, please contact us or click here.
