Abstract (en)

[origin: JP2001157856A] PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a rotor type centrifugal separator having a means for inspecting the presence of a cover combined with each housing, and stopping the execution of a centrifugal separation cycle when there is no cover. SOLUTION: This rotor type centrifugal separator 1, which is used, for example, for centrifuge of a bio-product, is provided with at least one housing 6 for holding a product to be centrifuged, a cover 8 combined with the housing for closing it, and a motor 3 mounted with a rotor rotating around a rotation axis A. The centrifugal separator 1 has a means 4, 11, 13, 14, 16 for inspecting the presence of a cover 8 combined with each housing 6, thereby stopping the execution of a centrifugal separation cycle when the cover 8 for the housing does not exist.

Abstract (fr)

Cette centrifugeuse (1) comprend un rotor (2), qui présente au moins un logement (6) de réception d'un produit à centrifuger et un couvercle associé (8) de fermeture dudit logement, la centrifugeuse comprenant également un moteur (3) sur lequel le rotor est monté pour l'entraîner en rotation autour d'un axe de rotation (A). Elle comprend en outre des moyens (4, 11, 13, 14, 16) de contrôle de la présence, pour chaque logement (6), du couvercle associé pour empêcher l'exécution d'un cycle de centrifugation au cas où le couvercle (8) d'un logement serait absent. Application, par exemple, à la centrifugation de produits biologiques. <IMAGE>
