  • Do not place any flask or beaker or any liquid material on the attachment while placing it on the shaking platform.
  • Hold the attachment carefully with gloves for user protection.

SUPPORTING WEIGHT ON ATTACHMENTS

In order to ensure safe and secure operation, the shaking platform must only be operated within the range of usable weight and speed (see diagram). Please make certain that the platform surface on which the attachment is placed is clean and leveled. If the attachment is screwed together with an adjacent piece of equipment (i.e. if it is integrated into a system) it should be noted during operation that dynamic forces may arise as a result of unfavorable loading circumstances and the position of the center of gravity. This may cause the adjacent equipment to vibrate or may cause the table to vibrate uncontrollably. If you notice that the device is running unevenly, in that case, consider lowering the speed till the irregularities fade out. Make sure that individual attachment vessels are placed in the middle of the attachment and that multiple vessels are evenly placed on the attachment. Also, ensure that all the vessels are firmly fastened on the attachment.
