What is Centrifuge Anti-explosion Test(edited)Anti-Explosion test is conducted on centrifuges according to BS EN 61010-2-020, Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use, particularly laboratory centrifuges. It assesses and evaluates the centrifuge rotor and potential threats associated with the respective centrifuge like centrifuge rotor damage in case of operation with maximum load and the highest rotation speed without splatter of fragments or endangered operator’s safety. Passing this test indicates that the product had qualified the international quality and safety standards.
Most often centrifuge rotors are made of aluminum alloy or plastic material and would corrode/fragile if it is left unused for a long time, posing a risk of sudden rupture, especially dangerous if the fragments penetrate the protective canister and fly out.
As the centrifuge consists of a rotor that rotates at high speed, it is critically important to ensure safety of the operator as well as the equipment.
