This listing for a Sorvall ST16R comes with the pictured rotor package has been fully tested.  As part of our refurbishment process the service team inspects every element and component, replaces any degraded parts and checks operations. This refrigerated centrifuge’s speed range is tested using a NIST traceable laser tachometer, at various levels and temperatures prior to being listed on our website.

When installing the Sorvall ST 16R a 4-hour settling period should be followed to allow the compressor to settle prior to powering on. This centrifuge should be placed by at least two people on a level, resonance free surface, and should have 30 cm/ 12” of clearance on the sides to ensure proper airflow and optimal refrigerator capacity. Hazardous materials should also be kept at least 12” from the sides for safe operation. In addition to proper placement, it’s also important to become familiar with this benchtop centrifuge’s maintenance schedule, includes daily cleaning of the chamber, rotor, and accessories. Keeping the centrifuge clean helps to prolong the life of the instrument.
