Looking for a heated centrifuge

Looking for a heated centrifuge to try out some tek. Only one under 4 grand I could find was the one from Viking Supply. Are those legit?

How large

I been fxking with hot spin cycle

A bench top one to start

I believe he’s talking about using it for separation not extraction. I.e. separating sauce from crystals. Mich cheaper units on ebay that aren’t heated. Could you warm your oil a little first? I’ve seen plenty of people using non heated just fine.

The rapid movement should heat it naturally

@TRIPPIE is rite, I run two 2000ml swing bucket fuges and by spin #2 we dont need to warm the diamonds up in the oven anymore to get good separation, I believe a heated centrifuge is just a normal centrifuge

Im thinking about trying to dewax rosin through mechanical separation and i feel like i need to melt the material down a little bit for it to actually separate out rather than simply centrifuging without any heating.

All centrifuges put off a heat signature.

I would suggest preheating your material as well as taking the temp of your fuge when its warm

I run my refrigerated fuge at 40C.

It has no heater.

If it didn’t have refrigeration it would run hotter.

This cat builds custom heat mats and will mold to fit. Are just leave the fuge running for a bit, before loading it will warm itself up depending on how hot you need it.

Am I crazy or can’t you just run a hot fluid in the jacket instead of cold and make it a “heated” centrifuge aka a normal centrifuge?

Most industrial chemical processes actually run at room temp or hotter. This industry is unique in that we require super cold temps most of the time. I wouldn’t think it would be that hard to find a heated (normal) centrifuge.

Only if the manufacturer has taken your use case into account when spec’ing lube and seals on the bearings. Refrigerated centrifuges were built because without said cooling a centrifuge will get HOT!!

If OEM expects you to chill the jacket, and you heat it, lube will thin & may drop. From there things can go sideways fast.

They self heat from friction with the air. Thats why you only see refrigerated centrifuges.

also why you can pull vacuum on the faster ones.

you don’t get to hit 100,000 g’s without making gone with the air first.

One just needs to run it for a few hours to make it hot. I’ve ran modern Rotina centrifuge for 7+ hours at 4500 rpm without the cooling system. It gets to about 40-45°C.
