Prepare carefully for the best results and performance

Before starting a run, check the following (according to model):

   There is no sample that can harm the chamber surface when heated,

   Liquids that may be diluted or samples that may be melted are not heated in sealed containers,

   The boiling points of the samples are higher than the set temperature,

   The freezing points of the samples are lower than the set the temperature,

   The liquids which may expand during heating do not overflow from their containers,

   The set temperature does not destroy the structure of the samples,

   The vapours and gases which are generated during the operation are not harmful to human health or flammable or explosive,

   Make sure that the safety thermostat is adjusted to the temperatures which are higher than the set temperature,

   The samples are not put on the chamber floor but on the shelves,

   The wick is placed on the wet bulb during the humidity tests,

   The rotation of circulation fan is on counterclockwise direction.  (Check especially if the instrument is moved).

   Especially please check that instruments placed inside, which will be dried up and heated, should not be combustible and explosive.

   Use only distilled water for humidity control instruments (for longer life) and connect the condensed, waste water outlet to a main drain.

 

Install the units correctly

For correct operation, please check that:
   Room temperature is between 5°C and 30°C (The maximum performance is obtained at the temperature of 22 °C and humidity rate of 80%).  
   The test cabinet does not occupy the utilization space of other instruments or does not damage them.
   There is enough space from the cooling unit ventilation. Leave at least 30 cm (50 cm recommended) at the back of the instrument.
