Product Description
The L-K Industries Benchmark 2000S oil centrifuge is The Benchmark S Heated Centrifuge is intended for general use in test laboratories and refineries, where Class I, Division 2 certification is not required. It is explosion resistant in accordance to the specifications of Group D, Class 1, Division 2 Areas, but without certification.
It operates on 120/240VAC, and comes completely assembled and ready for installation. A line cord for 120V or 240V operation can be provided at no additional cost if required. It can also be hard wired. It is intrinsically safe. For Class I, Division 2 certified version, request pricing.

It meets requirements for ASTM D91, D96, D893, D1796, D2273, D2709, D2711, D4007, D5546. It is ideal for laboratory settings or refineries using long cone (C) or short cone (D) tube configurations. Designed expressly for petroleum testing applications.
it provides a convenient means of determining sediment and water content in crude oil, fuel oils, and middle distillate fuels. Also used in determining the precipitation number, demulsibility characteristics, trace sediments, and insolubles in used lubricating oils. The Benchmark 2000 can accommodate 4 centrifuge tubes of either 6" or 8" conical ASTM types, pear-shaped (100ml) tubes, or finger tubes (12.5ml). PLEASE SPECIFY TUBE CONFIGURATION WHEN ORDERING.

The fully insulated centrifuge prevents heat loss and allows for more accurate temperature control. Its sturdy outer case is finished with a solvent-resistant powder coating. With a motor capable of operating at 2300 rpm and real-time temperature readings, this unit has unmatched precision in sediment and water determination. The digital programmable temperature controller (ambient inner bowl temperature up to 200°F/93°C) provides better process control for testing heavy crude oil. The integrated countdown timer, which shuts down the motor when a test is complete, reduces variation in testing. The internal programmable, solid-state motor controller enables linear acceleration, which results in more consistent testing. Specially designed collars, cushions and shields help prevent/reduce tube breakage at higher G-forces.

The Benchmark 2000S features a latching emergency stop button and automatic locking lid (the motor will not operate when the lid is open and the lid will not open while the motor is running). It comes with a standard 4-tube configuration (compatible with Pear shaped, Long or short cone or capillary style tubes).

The fully insulated centrifuge is perfect for laboratory settings or refineries with tube configurations long cone or short cone models.
