The power plug on these is a three-prong HVAC plug (see pictures) We changed one to a 20A regular plug to test these machines, and it works fine. We do advise the customer to do the same and have a dedicated 20A wall plugin. These will trip a 15A home circuit. These are not convertible to 220 VAC and require UPS units with 120VAC plugins for overseas use.
We bought these units from a major biotech/pharma company just recently. We have tested them and they perform as they should, spinning up to 4800rpm (with existing rotor) and cooling to -20°C with no problem. At the time of publishing this ad we have 7 operational machines and another 7 being repaired by our technician. So parts (plate bucket rotors, motors, compressors are available too) Because we were offered these machines at a good price we are able to sell them for the price you see here which is about 1/6th what you would pay for a used operational unit. The cost of these new is around 20k, so by buying from us your lab can save a ton of money. Want more than one? We are open to offers!
Units will be palleted for shipping. We will not be responsible for damages in pallet shipping. Upon request we can crate these centrifuges for an extra fee of $200. If you have any questions or would like a shipping quote please drop us a line here. We’d be happy to help.
