Cleaning Rotor Bearing Surfaces

INSTRUCTIONS

Figure 1 3. Inspect the rotor lid locking stud. 4. Clean and inspect any Sorvall RX rotor covers. If lid does not t on the rotor smoothly replace the pertinent components. 5. Inspect O-rings (if applicable). 6. Record the serial numbers of all rotors inspected and any problems relating to the rotors.

Clean the centrifuge cabenet and drive spindle:


The entire centrifuge must be kept clean. Clean the enameled cabinet panels weekly with a commercial wax based cleaning product. Clean the top deck surface and door with a household detergent and water. Use a brush to remove ground in dirt. Immediately afterwards, rinse thoroughly with water, especially if using solvent based or chlorinated cleaners for removal of difcult stains. The drive spindle must be kept clean so the rotor does not stick to it. Wipe it with a soft cloth each time before the rotor is installed, warm water may be used for cleaning when the chamber is defrosted. A clean undamaged surface is essential for proper rotor installation and removal.

P/N: 50589-3

Page 3

for the RC-5B / RC-5C Preventative Maintenance Kit (Kit Catalog No. 12010)
Clean the condensing ns:
Accumulation of dirt, dust, and debris on the condenser ns reduces the efciency of the refrigeration system. The condenser ns are located on the left side on the RC-5B and RC-5C instruments. To maintain refrigeration efciency, check for accumulation weekly and clean the condenser ns with a brush or vacuum cleaner at least once a month. The ns bend easily, use care when cleaning.

INSTRUCTIONS

Centrifuge Environment Check: Note:


If the ambient temperature exceeds 25C, the centrifuge may not maintain the preset temperature during high speed runs. The centrifuge requires adequate ventilation and proper environmental conditions to function properly. To provide adequate air circulation, the centrifuge must be located in an area that allows a 10 cm (4 inch) clearance between any wall and all sides of the centrifuge. The centrifuge operates in a temperature between 15C and 38C. If the inlet air temperature is above 25C, the centrifuge may not maintain low temperatures at high speeds.

Motor and Gyro checks:


Motor and Gyro:
1. Turn the centrifuge main power OFF and disconnect the power cord from the supply outlet. 2. Using a 9/16 wrench, raise the front stabilizer feet and roll the centrifuge away from the wall. 3. Remove the front, left side, right side, and rear panels from the centrifuge. 4. Remove and discard the rubber gyro seal and gyro foam insulating ring that is located in the bottom of the centrifuge chamber. 5. Using a 9/32 Allen wrench, remove and discard the four (4) socket head screws that hold the motor / gyro in the base of the centrifuge. 6. Disconnect all of the motor wires and carefully lift the motor / gyro assembly from the Centrifuge. Lay the motor on a at work surface. Page 4

P/N: 50589-3

for the RC-5B / RC-5C Preventative Maintenance Kit (Kit Catalog No. 12010)
7. Remove the motor brushes and inspect the motor commutator. The commutator should be a smooth shiney copper color devoid of pits and grooves. If the commutator is damaged, replace the motor. Centrifuge RC-5B & RC-5C centrifuges Motor 12991

INSTRUCTIONS

8. With the brushes removed turn the gyro shaft by hand and check for smooth noise free rotoation. If the motor shaft feels rough or makes noise disconnect the motor from the gyro and determine weather the gyro or the motor are the cause of the problem. Check the motor coupling for any deformities. If the coupling is damaged, replace it with part number 12345. If the motor bearings are damaged, replace the motor using the chart above as a guide. If the gyro is the cause of the problem, replace the gyro ordering part number 12817. 9. If the motor contains carbon brushes replace the brushes after rst comparing the brushes that were removed with the new brushes that are included with the PM kit (12010). Discard the brushes that were removed from the motor. 12884 74196 1/4 thick brush kit 3/8 thick brush kit

Warning:

Only install the correct thickness brush. If the wrong brush is chosen the centrifuge may not run and the motor may be damaged.

10. Inspect the smaller brush warning spring to insure proper operation. 11. Inspect the foam ring inside the silencer assembly located under the centrifuge chamber (motor shroud). Insure that the foam ring that is located at the bottom of the upper silencer assembly is place and intact. If the foam ring is missing or damaged replace it using the foam ring kit part number 74342. 12. Using a DVM (digital volt meter) check the continuity of the ground wire on the motor assembly. The resistance from the ground pin on the motor cable to the motor frame should be less than 0.1 . 13. Inspect the tapered pins on the gyro cone drive adapter.
