4.0 Safety Instructions
Before you connect up the power cable to the mains supply, check that:
the voltage and frequency of the mixer/shaker conforms with the line
voltage (the voltage rating of your mixer/shaker is printed on the
nameplate).
the power switch is set to "0" and the control knobs have all been turned
counterclockwise up to the stop. This will prevent spills due to sudden,
overly vigorous shaking.
The mixer/shaker is not protected for use in explosive atmospheres. Be careful
when using it close to flammable and explosive substances.
The laboratory table must be strong and have a flat and non-slip surface.
Before you start up the mixer/shaker, make sure that the vessel (process medium)
is secure and cannot slip.
Take precautions to prevent attachments or vessels colliding with other objects on
the laboratory table during the shaking operation.
To guard against splashing and spills, close the shaking vessels carefully. When
you work with open vessels, select the shaking frequency accordingly.
To prevent unintentional violent shaking, it is always advisable to start with a low
shaking frequency and to increase it gradually in small steps until you reach the
shaking effect you want.
Always place single vessels at the centre of the platform. When working with
several vessels, always distributed them evenly over the platform.
Consult the load curves whenever you work with high loads and high shaking
frequencies.
Observe the pertinent safety regulations when working with hazardous media.
Make allowance for the angle of inclination when using tall vessels .

5.0 Installation in the Laboratory
Use the supplied power cable to connect the mixer/shaker to the mains supply.
The appliance connector socket is at the rear.
The mixer/shaker is protected by bipolar fuses. The fuses are located in the housing of the
appliance connector socket and can be reached from the outside. The fuse rating is printed on
the plate.
For a description of how to operate your mixer/shaker, turn to the section "7.0 Operating the
mixers/shakers" and look up your particular model variant.
When working with low shaking frequencies, you can place flat vessels, e.g. Petri dishes, on
the platform without an additional fixture.
This mixer/shaker is fitted as standard with a EURO plug. For North America it comes with a
US standard plug.
To connect the mixer/shaker to a different mains system, you must use an authorized adapter
or you must have an electrician replace the supplied plug with a suitable 3-pin plug authorized
for your mains system. In its delivered condition the mixer/shaker is earthed! If you replace
the original plug, make sure that the protective earth conductor of your mixer/shaker is
connected to the new plug.

6.0 Assembly and Description
All BIOMETRA models of the rocking and tumbling tables are stable and rugged shakers and
mixers for maximum performance. They have been developed specially for the shaking and
mixing of substances for scientific purposes in laboratories. Control knobs are neatly arranged
at the front for convenient operation.
With the delivered models there are no shaking frequency limits provided if they are loaded
centrally as recommended.
The Tumbling Table WT12 is used for the shaking of vessels - particularly flasks, bottles
and dye pans - with a gentle asymmetrical motion.
Vessels are placed on the rubber pad that is supplied with the mixer/shaker.
The rubber pad is easy to replace.
Shaking frequency is adjustable from 4 to 40 cycles/min. The angle of inclination is 5° or
optional 10°.
7.0 Operation
The following controls are situated on the front panel from right to left
2-pole power switch with green illuminated rocker (1/0)
Speed control knob (Speed)
Use the power switch to turn the mixer/shaker on. Use the speed control knob to set the
shaking frequency you require.

8.0 Dismantling, Transportation and Storage
DISMANTLING
1.
2.
3.
Switch off the mixer/shaker and remove the plug from the socket-outlet.
Remove all items of equipment from the vicinity of the mixer/shaker so that it can be
dismantled without difficulty.
Remove all vessels from the mixer/shaker. Dismantle any accessories.
TRANSPORTATION AND STORAGE
To prevent damage, it is best to store and transport the mixer/shaker and its components in
their original packaging or other suitable container. Close the packaging with adhesive tape.
Store the mixer/shaker in a dry place.
CAUTION:
Guard the instrument from impact and vibration during transport.
9.0 Routine Cleaning and Maintenance
Clean the housing and surface of the mixer/shaker with a damp cloth (mild suds).
IMPORTANT:
Never clean the mixer/shaker with chlorine bleach, detergents based on
chlorine, scouring powder, ammonium, cleaning wool or agents with
metallic constituents. This would cause damage to the sensitive surface
of the equipment.
The mixer/shaker has no wearing parts and requires no maintenance. If your BIOMETRA
product ever needs to be repaired, you should enlist the services of a specialist who has been
authorized by BIOMETRA to carry out such work. Contact your local BIOMETRA dealer or
get in direct touch with BIOMETRA.
