The Dynamica Velocity range sets another benchmark in laboratory instrumentation. The Velocity 18R pro delivers exceptional capacity (36 x 15ml, 16 x 50ml), refrigerated centrifugation with an impressive maximum speed of 18,000 RPM (28,978 x g) and all from the convenience of the bench.
With the Velocity 18R Pro simply place the rotor on the drive shaft and that's all. The auto lock and secure mechanism performs the rest. Once centrifugation is complete simply lift the rotor off the drive shaft. Quicker, easier, more efficient and safer. Automatic rotor recognition and confirmation once centrifugation has commenced, including rotational speed calculation and optimum temperature control. Furthermore new rotors can be easily loaded onto the on-board database as they are introduced.
The innovative high torque, drive technology effortlessly accelerates even the heaviest rotors to terminal velocity quickly and efficiently. Even the heaviest rotors with a full load will achieve maximum velocity within a few minutes. Besides, 9 pre-set acceleration and 10 pre-set deceleration profiles (including coasting deceleration) ensure the best separation even for the most delicate density gradients. Innovative motor engineering and mounting including a flexible drive shaft allow for greater imbalance tolerances, so much so that samples can be balanced simply with the naked eye. No more weighing just fill tubes or bottles to within 5mm of each other.
A powerful non-CFC compressor cools the chamber quickly whilst maintaining the rotor at set temperature during centrifugation. The twin cooling fans - one each for the compressor and motor respectively - dissipate heat quickly to improve cooling efficiency and extend motor life. The temperature displayed on the LCD panel during centrifugation is that of the rotor (and hence samples) and not the temperature of the chamber nor the temperature at the sensor to allow for more precise, reproducible and efficient experimentation.
