Safety Information

Safety Precaution

If the motor overloads-stop operation immediately

If you continue operation under abnormal overload conditions, the motor may stop. If the motor stops, turn the volume knob to the minimum and cut the switch off, suspending operation for a while.

Overload means the situation when the motor surface heats up more than 90 due to

rust on ball bearing etc.,

Never fail to ground the unit.

This unit uses 3-core power code (including ground wire). Be sure to ground the unit for safety.

Be cautious using flammable chemicals

Since this unit is not of explosion proof, do not use in flammable or explosive environments.

The flask clamp contains a strong spring. Be careful not to break the glass apparatus

The enclosed flask clamp contains a strong spring to hold the glass apparatus firmly. Be careful not to break the glass.

Use a trap.

Use a trap when you decompress by hydraulic rotary vacuum pump. When you use our Handy Aspirator, fill to overflow.

Maintain the vacuum seal.

If the vacuum seal dries, friction occurs between the rotary joint, creating a strange noise. (This can cause problems.)

The vacuum seal is expendable. Exchange the seal in case of vacuum-down.

Put silicon grease onto the ripped side of vacuum seal so that it might not dry. If you are afraid of sample contamination, use liquid sample. However, you can’t use organic sample.

How to Assemble

1. Unpack the package and take out the components.

Unpack the package and set the stand of the body on the stable place. If you don’t set the unit on the stable place, vibration or noise occurs, or the unit could fall and get damages.

2.Fix the motor to the body.

1.Insert the motor bearing bar into the metal support of the body, put D cut surface (flat surface) of the bar perpendicularly to either 2 upper pr side screws, and fasten 4 fix screws tightly by using the attached hexagonal wrench (for M5).

Then, slant the motor slightly to the right (about 45°), and fix the finger screw of the motor.

If you fasten loose, vibration occurs and prevents accurate measurement, or the motor comes off and the glass apparatus could break.

Finger Screw

2. Remove the cooling tube fastening knot (the bigger knot with a inner spring) when you fix the motor.
