Safety Information

Safety Precautions

If the motor overloads - Stop operation immediately.

If you continue operation under abnormal overload conditions, the motor may stop by the safety device . If the motor stops, turn the volume knob to the minimum and cut the switch off.

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 a 3-core power cord (including ground wire). Be sure to ground the unit for safety.

Be cautious using flammable chemicals.

This unit is not explosion proof. Do not use in flammable or explosive gas environments and do not evaporate explosive substances.

The flask clamp is very springy. Be careful not to break the glass apparatus.

The enclosed flask clamp is very springy 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.

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

You can use the vacuum seal without grease. But if you desire more longer life of the seal, put silicon grease onto the ripped side of vacuum seal. If you are afraid of sample contamination, use liquid sample.
