The Sorvall Legend RT has been fully tested by our service department.  Our technician run a ten-point inspection on all our benchtop centrifuge systems to guarantee they’re performing up to the factory specification.  We use a temperature verification tool when testing the cooling system on the refrigerated centrifuge.  The system is checked out at the minimum and maximum temperature settings to ensure the unit is running at its optimal level.  We also check the coolant levels in the compressor and top off when necessary.

Once the cooling system has been checked out on the Sorvall Centrifuge, we then run a speed test.  Our technician’s use a laser tachometer and run instrument at various speeds, using an assortment of rotors we have in stock.  During the speed testing, we also check the noise level of the motor and braking system to make sure the benchtop centrifuge has a clean bill of health.  If you have any questions about how we test our Thermo Centrifuge systems, please give us a call. 

When an order is placed your instrument goes through another series tests as part of our outbound quantity control inspection.  Our turnaround time is typically one to three business days from receipt of order.  Each centrifuge is professionally packaged by our warehouse staff and shipped fully insured for dock to dock transit.  We understand how important quality is to our customer and we take every step to ensure you receive a reliable tool.
