Optimization of Laboratory Centrifuge Rotor Using Simulation Tools to Improve Performance and Productivity
Himanshu J. Gajjar,  Nikunj Modh,  Killol Kothari
Laboratory Centrifuge rotors are designed for high service life duty and should stand against two times the maximum operation speed in terms of the manufacture’s standard. High speed micro centrifuge spins the rotor at 15000rpm which generates the high centripetal force on rotor which leads to the high stress accumulation and failure of the rotors. Design of rotor and size is prepared in SolidWorks for given High Speed Micro Centrifuge with existing power capacity with Brushless DC Motor. Design Optimization of the rotor mainly structural and weight optimization is carried out with the help of FEM using ANSYS which helps to improve the performance and productivity. Most optimum design of the rotor with higher load capacity is selected on the basis of mass, stress induced and deflection of rotor to improve the performance and productivity. Validation process of the performance and productivity improvement in the rotor carry out by comparing the experimental results of existing rotor and the optimized rotor.
