Approved Rotors and Accessories

Category: Quality & Safety
Topic: Centrifugation Safety

Only approved, Hettich manufactured rotors and accessories should be used in Hettich centrifuges. All rotors and accessories are designed to fit and work properly and safely in each designated centrifuge. Hettich does not endorse the use of other manufacturers' rotors and accessories in Hettich equipment.

Bio Safety Lids

Category: Quality & Safety
Topic: Centrifugation Safety

Hettich manufactures a variety of buckets and lids designed for bio-containment. These lids and buckets have a special screw cap and bio-safety seal designed to contain any accidental tube breakage during centrifugation. When used properly, all liquids will be contained within the bucket/ lid set. In a bio-safety system, droplets and aerosols are prevented from escaping by a rubber bio-seal, or a ring.If the bucket of a bio-safety system is used without the lid, the ring must be removed from the bucket in order to prevent the ring from being damaged during the centrifugation spin. Damaged rings must not be used to seal the bio-safety system. Without the use of a bio-safety system, the centrifuge is not microbiologically sealed in accordance with the EN/ IEC 610101-2-020 standard.

Changing Centrifugation Parameters During a Run

Category: Operation & Use
Topic: Centrifuge Operation

The running time, the speed, the relative centrifugal force (RCF), the centrifuging radius, the run-up and run-down parameters as well as the temperature (for centrifuges with cooling only) can all be changed while the centrifuge is running.

Clean, Inspect & Lubricate

Category: Care & Maintenance
Topic: Preventative Maintenance

It is important to regularly clean, inspect and lubricate the rotor and accessories in all Hettich centrifuges. General maintenance procedures will ensure proper operations, provide optimal and consistent results plus extend the life span of all components. Regular inspection and lubrication can reduce the operational noise, decrease potential vibrations and prevent imbalance errors from occurring.

Continuous Operation

Category: Operation & Use
Topic: Centrifuge Operation

The run time can be set to continuous using the following steps:

Corrosive Agents

Category: Quality & Safety
Topic: Centrifugation Safety

All Hettich products are manufactured using high quality materials that are engineered to last for many years.

Definition of Mains Reset

Category: Operation & Use
Topic: Centrifuge Operation

A mains reset is the removal and re-application of AC power via the power switch.

Disposal of Centrifuge

Category: Symbols & Markings
Topic: Symbols

Before disposal, the centrifuge must be decontaminated and free of any bio- or radioactive hazard to protect people, the environment and property.

Emergency Release

Category: Quality & Safety
Topic: Centrifugation Safety

During a power failure, centrifuges with a motorized lid cannot be unlocked. For access to items locked inside a centrifuge, an emergency release of the lid has to be executed by hand.

Emergency Stop

Category: Operation & Use
Topic: Centrifuge Operation

The centrifuge will invoke the highest braking intensity (9) by pressing the STOP key twice.
