Lubrication of Rotor trunnions

Category: Care & Maintenance
Topic: Preventative Maintenance

The rotor trunnions are small steel knobs located at the edge of a swing-out rotor and support the centrifuge buckets. During centrifugation, the buckets will swing on the trunnions causing friction. For best results, general maintenance and greasing of the trunnions will decrease the friction and allow for an even swing of the buckets.

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.
