               Automatic Centrifuge Controller    

FilterMaxx Automatic  Controllers:




The Deluxe Controller is preset for operation upon arrival. The only adjustments that may be required are the Total Run Time or the Temperature. These values are changed by using the up and down keys on the front of the device. To retain a new set temperature in memory, press the set key on the temperature controller.  Units with 120 volt single heaters, the temperature is set for 65.6 C or 150F.  Units with 240 volt dual heaters are set for 97C or 206.6F


Variable Speed Controllers: See page below for Hz vs G force and additional information.


The ELECTRIC BALL VALVE is wired into the power input leads inside the motor box for 230-240 volt circuits.  For variable speed: Black = (L1 Red = L2). For single phase: (black and yellow = L1, Red white and blue = L2) When the motor is energized, the ball valve will open. When the motor power is off, the ball valve will close. For 230/460 volt controllers, the valve plugs into the connector located on the face of the controller.  The electric ball valve is installed BEFORE the heater. Use no valve after the heater. The heater output must remain open to prevent pressure rise in the unit.


The heater should be filled with oil before it is energized. The oil cools the element and prevents the oil from flowing over and burning on a hot element. Typical flow rate is 15 gallons per hour or 1 quart per minute. This flow may be varied as required after the unit is running and up to temperature. Add an inline ball valve BEFORE the heater to adjust the flow rate. The element is rated to run dry without damage had has a lifetime replacement warranty.  


On deluxe units, set the TOTAL RUN TIME so that the centrifuge stops before the oil supply runs out to prevent the heater from running dry. Dry running will not damage the lifetime warranty heater element.


ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS: 20 amps at 208-240 volts for single phase motor circuit. 8 amps for 3 phase motor circuit.


15 amps at 120 volts for single heater circuit. Variable wattage or Dual heaters: 15 amps at 240 volts.

Note: Silicone Heater cords- Red and Blue are hot. Yellow-green is ground


Wire the electric ball valve into electrical box on motor. The valve should be wired to the power input cable. Use the resistor in line with the red wire. Insulate the connection to prevent shock or equipment damage.

US Filtermaxx 10,000G Centrifuge 

Start and Stop Centrifuge Using Toggle switch above the green variable speed Potentiometer.


Power up motor driver. The driver takes about 20 to 30 seconds to charge the capacitors and boot up. When boot is complete, toggle run switch above potentiometer to start. Adjust speed using the potentiometer. Toggle switch to stop.  DO NOT TURN OFF POWER UNTIL THE CENTRIFUGE HAS STOPPED. Cutting power before then will burn up motor driver as it tries to compensate for the low voltage.
