Knowing how to get a good industrial centrifuge maintenance is very essential, which not only can guarantee the working efficiency, but also make industrial centrifuge a longer life. So next, let’s see how to maintain industrial centrifuge during using:
1.Polypropylene (PP) centrifuge tubes (bottles) should not be used in contact with concentrated nitric acid (95%), aqua regia, toluene, benzene, gasoline, kerosene, ether and so on. Polycarbonate (PC) centrifuge tubes (bottles) are not compatible with hydrofluoric acid, hydrochloric acid (30%, 50%), sulfuric acid (10%), nitric acid (95%), aqua regia, potassium hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide and so on. Polyethylene (PE) centrifuge tubes (bottles) cannot be used in contact with sulfuric acid (50%, 75%), benzene, gasoline, kerosene, ether and so on.
2.Remember to wipe dry the water on the centrifuge inside wall after using, in order to prevent the corrosion of spindle. What’s more, putting neutral lubricating oil on the motor spindle can also prevent the corrosion of motor spindle. Take the rotors out and store them on a dry place if you won’t use centrifuge for a long time. In this way, rotors can be protected from corrosion.
3.Centrifuge tubes should be updated regularly and do not use centrifuge tubes that are about to break.
4.Rotors should be cleaned regularly by neutral cleaning lotion and then be stored in a dry place, in order to prevent them from corrosion. And do not dry the rotors with drying machine. What’s more, you should put some lubricating oil on the center of rotors.
5.The power should be cut off when the centrifuges are not being used.
