This Sorvall Legend T comes with a clean bill of health and the pictured rotor package. Our service team has performed a full preventative maintenance, replacing any components that have degraded and verifying speed with a NIST traceable laser tachometer. This Legend T ran quietly, and without issue.

Due to the weight and size of the Sorvall Legend T Centrifuge, at least two people should lift and placed in an area away from direct sunlight as UV rays can degrade plastics. This centrifuge should also be placed on a level, resonance free surface, with 30 cm/ 12” of clearance around all sides to ensure proper airflow, this includes keeping hazardous materials clear during operation. Prior to starting a centrifugation, it is important to visually inspect tubes for possible damage and that they are not filled past the maximum load and that the rotor is symmetrically loaded to avoid an imbalance. The chance of breakage grows the higher the speed and RCF become.

Becoming familiar with your new Centrifuge is key to maintaining and prolonging the life of the instrument. Our inventory here at The Lab World Group includes our standard thirty-day warranty and typically ship within three business days from receipt of completed sales order.  If you have questions about our refurbishment process, or would like a quote for the Sorvall Legend T from our sales team, please don’t hesitate to contact us, we’re happy to help.
