3.2
Wear and tear parts
There are the following wear and tear parts - door gasket.
3.3
Remarks on the placement of samples
To provide proper air circulation and stable conditions in which the samples are stored in the chamber, it is
necessary to keep the following rules:
-
the max height of the samples should not exceed 1/3 of the space below the shelves
-
the samples should be placed in such a way that so that the horizontal surface between the
containers does not exceed 1/3 of the width and height of the empty shelf
-
the space between the samples and between the samples and the wall should be more or less equal
The picture below is an example of the placement of samples in the chamber.

Closing the chamber
The door has been equipped with a door handle. To close the door, turn the handle to the vertical position,
push the door gently and turn the handle to the horizontal position. Closing the door correctly reduces energy
consumption and ensures proper temperature stability and uniformity.
3.5

5 OPERATING THE DEVICE
5.1
Turning the unit on/off
DRY-Line Prime and VENTI-Line Prime
Before the first using, it is recommended to heat the chamber (3 hours at 250°C). turn
on the unit and set the temperature at 250°C. Then let the unit work for 3 hours. During
the heating, the unit is likely to produce a specific smell.
When you turn on the device with main switch and the display is unreadable (works only the
backlight) turn off the device, wait for about 1 minute and turn on the unit again.
Once the device is turned on with the main switch, the display will show the driver and software versions.
The next step is peripheral autodiagnostics. If one of the components is damaged, the device stops and an
appropriate screen is shown.
Next the device operation status screen shows up. The measurement of temperature is calibrated that way
it shows real temperature in geometrical center of chamber.
If the buttons are illuminated and the display switched off, the key pad is locked. Press and hold the
button to onlock.
If the main switch is turned on, but the unit is not working, it is in a stand-by mode. Press and hold the
button to switch on.
5.1.1
Stand-by mode
The stand-by mode allows to turn the unit on/off quickly. To activate it, press down and hold the
button.
If a program is active, it will stop once in the stand-by mode.
If there is a power shortage while in the stand-by mode, the unit will turn on once the power is resumed.
5.2
Navigation between windows
Moving between windows, programming and reading the device operation parameters has been made easier
and more convenient thanks to intuitive operation and clear messages.
You can control the unit by touching the buttons with your finger. It is not possible to use pens,
pencils or any other tools. If you touch a button but can’t hear it beep, wait 15 seconds before
touching it again.

7 ADD, EDIT, VIEW AND DELETE A PROGRAM
7.1 Types of program
You can edit up to 3 programs with max three steps (segment + ramp) per program.
A segment is a stage of the program when a set temperature is maintained in time.
A program can consist of one segment (you can set only temperature and time) or of a few segments with
additional parameters (you can set temperature, time and – for ex. fan speed). Air-flap opening can be adjusted with the knob on the front panel.
Additionally, you can adjust ramps which are parameters of the unit while the set temperature is being
achieved.
Page 19 / 38

When you quit program editing, you will see the following window where
you can set the temperature of temperature protection.
Page 23 / 38
Instruction Manual DL, VL, IL
The unit is factory equipped with over temperature samples protection, which is realized on the basis of
temperature value measured on the second, independent temperature sensor (protection sensor). The purpose of samples protection is to protect from uncontrolled raise or drops of the temperature. At the time of
operation, the transmitter disconnects the power supply circuit.
Class 3.1 (IL, VL, DL) – over temperature protection – automatic switch on the circuit when the temperature go down below the set value protection.
Over temperature protection class 3.1 according to DIN 12880:
T_prot_Hi
During setting the value of protection, please note that when achieving the temperature and after opening
the door the set temperature may exceed by 2%. If the temperature value of protection will be set to ‘close’
to set temperature in program, it may cause unexpected activation of the protection.
It’s recommended to set the values to:
-
over temperature protection: 10°C above set temperature
The activation of protection generates audible alarm and display the alarm icon.

Instruction Manual DL, VL, IL
To clean products made of stainless steel we recommend using cleaning solution dedicated particularly to
stainless steel material. It preserves the steel surface from permanent stains and at the same time retains
aesthetic appearance of the product.
INOX products are manufactured with stainless steel. When used in standard laboratory conditions they do
not rust. However it is possible that stains (which may look like rust) form on the steel surface (e.g. due to
the kind of samples that are incubated in the chamber). In such case we recommend using cleaning solution
(to clean the stains) which is dedicated to this particular application, e.g. Pelox.
When cleaning stainless steel product with dedicated cleaning solution, one should pay
attention to the suggestions and recommendations given in the user manual (or in the
safety data sheet) of the cleaning solution.
