BEI Kimco has met the high-performance motor requirements for laboratory centrifuge machines. Centrifuges are used in biology, chemistry and hospital labs to rapidly spin and separate liquid samples into layers for analysis. BEI Kimco was challenged to develop motors that would deliver the high speeds needed for two centrifuge manufacturers, while at the same time provide quiet operation and maintenance-free performance.
BEI Kimco developed Brushless DC (BLDC) motors DIT11-15 and DIH40-49 to meet the necessary specifications of the individual centrifuges including operating speeds approaching 25,000 RPM.
BEI Kimco offers speed, size, torque, attached encoders, and other characteristics as customization options throughout the BLDC motor offering. BEI Kimco can design a product specific to centrifuge applications and many others.
- DIT11-15 motor delivers moderate torque levels of 3.0 oz-in in a 1.1” in diameter x 1.28” in axial length size
- DIH40-49 design is capable of power levels approaching 500 watts in a size of 4.0” in diameter x 4.9” in axial length
- Varying requirements in motor functionality and size, as well as speeds that can range from just a few thousand RPM to higher than 50,000 RPM
