Fully-Functional Sorvall RC-6 Superspeed
Floor Centrifuge with Rotor - Tested to 19,000 rpm

Low maintenance, vacuum-free, and time-tested, this Sorvall RC-6 superspeed floor
centrifuge has been thoroughly inspected by our technician and tested to confirm it
reaches 19,000 rpm, holding at 3°C during operation. The rotor chamber is in excellent
condition while the centrifuge exterior has some minor wear, including a few scuffs
and small cosmetic cracks. The front panel was replaced with the front panel of a RC-6
Plus, an almost identical model of the RC-6 before Kendro was acquired by Thermo.

The RC-6 is equipped with a simple, easy-to-read keypad and adjustable LCD panel
interface. It has a maximum capacity of 4 liters and a maximum speed of 21,000 rpm
when paired with compatible rotor. We've included an SA-600 fixed angle rotor that
has a maximum rpm of 17,000.

With our 90-day warranty and knowledgeable testing, you can buy with confidence
knowing you’ll get a fully-functional system that will work on day-one and will be
protected against unexpected issues.

Inspected, Tested, and Serviced by Technician

Our technician not only inspected and tested this centrifuge to confirm its functionality,
but he also recharged the refrigeration system to guarantee it will hold a steady low
temperature during operation at top speeds.

The following tests and services were performed:

- Tested centrifuge to 19,000 rpm
- Refrigeration held at 3°C during operation at 19,000 rpm
- Refrigeration system recharged

No problem or unusual noise was found with this centrifuge.

Experienced Centrifuge Dealer

New Life Scientific is no stranger to centrifuges. Over the past four years we have
dealt in and worked on a wide variety of benchtop and floor centrifuges from the
top manufacturers, including Eppendorf, Beckman, and Sorvall/Thermo.

You can have confidence in our technical evaluations and our warranty knowing that
we have actual in-house technicians who inspect, test, service, and repair centrifuges.
After their examinations and being cleaned inside and out, they often leave our shop
meeting manufacturer specs.

When you buy from us, you’re not just buying a centrifuge. You also gain a resource
for after-sales support for any questions or issues that may arise, even after your
warranty expires.

Recharged Refrigeration System

To ensure the refrigeration is operating at manufacturer specification, our technician
performs a full evacuation of the refrigeration system and refills the system with
new refrigerant. The recharge process involves the following:

- Vent system of refrigerant
- Apply 250 micron vacuum to test for leaks, remove debris, and boil off moisture
in lines
- Nitrogen purge three times to clear lines for preventative maintenance
- Refill system with new refrigerant
- Confirm system is operating to manufacturer specification

90-Day Warranty for your Peace-of-Mind

We realize that buying pre-owned can be unnerving, so we include a 90-day warranty
on our equipment to protect you against any equipment failure or defects. If anything
goes wrong, our in-house support is only a phone call away.
