The Velocity 18R Pro delivers exceptional capacity (36 x 15ml, 16 x 50ml), refrigerated centrifugation with an impressive maximum speed of 18,000 RPM (30,318 xg) and all from the convenience of the bench.
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.
With the Velocity 18R Pro, you simply need to place the rotor onto the drive shaft. The auto lock and secure mechanism perform the rest. Once centrifugation is complete, simply lift the rotor off the drive shaft. Quick, easy, efficient and safe.
Innovative motor engineering and mounting (including a flexible drive shaft) allow for greater imbalance tolerances, so much so that samples can be balanced simply by eye. No more weighing – just fill tubes or bottles to within 5mm of each other.
The innovative high-torque drive technology effortlessly accelerates even the heaviest rotors to terminal velocity quickly and efficiently. A full load will achieve maximum velocity within a few minutes. 9 pre-set acceleration and 10 pre-set deceleration profiles (including coasting deceleration) ensure the best separation, even for the most delicate density gradients.
The temperature displayed on the LCD panel during centrifugation is that of the rotor (and hence samples). This allows more precise, reproducible and efficient experimentation compared to displaying the temperature of the chamber or the temperature at the sensor.
Parameters are quickly and effortlessly input through the simple touch pad interface and displayed on the brightly backlit and easy to read LCD panel. The LCD panel concurrently displays all experimentation parameters including diagnostic information as it occurs.
Noise abating insulation in the console, including lower noise fans, combine to reduce the audible operating noise to ≤58dB.
A powerful, non-CFC compressor cools the chamber quickly whilst maintaining the rotor at a set temperature during centrifugation. The twin cooling fans – one for the compressor and motor respectively – dissipate heat quickly to improve cooling efficiency and extend the motor lifespan.
