Safety Information
Safety Precautions
If the motor overloads - stop operation immediately.
If you continue operation under abnormal conditions, the motor will stop automatically. If the
motor stops, turn the control knob to the minimum and turn off the power switch.
℃.
*Overload condition exists when the motor surface temperature reaches more than 90℃
A cause of motor overheating is seized ball bearings.
Make sure that the volume knob indicates “min” before turning the unit on.
Make sure that the control knob is at “min”. If the control knob is not turned to “min”, the
evaporation flask turns round when you turn on the power switch.
Move the lift up or down after you stop rotation of the evaporation flask.
If the lift is moved up or down while the evaporation flask is rotating, scalding may occur due to
dispersing of hot water. Be sure to move the lift after turning the control knob to the minimum.
Never fail to ground the unit.
This unit uses a 3-conductor power cord (including ground wire). Be sure to ground the unit for
safety.
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.

Safety Information
Safety Precautions
Only water to be used with the Water Bath.
Only water in the Water Bath. Problems can occur if anything other than water is used. Also be
sure not to heat with low water level or the bath can overheat.
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 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.
Cleaning the exterior of RE series evaporator
Do not use any volatile chemicals to clean the exterior of this unit. This could damage the color
and shape. Wipe clean with a soft dry towel , etc.-Do not use a brush.
If the unit is not in use for a long period of time, disconnect the power supply.
If the unit is not in use for a long period of time, turn the power off and pull out the power cord for
safety.

5. How To Operate
1. Cooling condenser
●Glass A or B
Circulate the cooling water or alcohol in the cooling condenser.
●Glass C
Put dry ice and pour alcohol carefully so that it does not overflow.
2. Evaporation flask
Put sample into the evaporation flask.
*Fill evaporation flask to the half of it’s capacity. Liquid collected in the receiving flask
should also be kept within approximately half capacity.
3.Water bath
Set the bath temperature at the required degree and let heat to the set point.
4. Turn the power on, and move flask down.
1. When the bath temperature reaches the set point, make sure that the control knob stays at
“min”, and turn on the power switch on the right side of control box.
* If, at this time, the volume knob is not at “min”, the evaporation flask rotates when you
turn the power on.
2. Operate the lift switch to move the evaporation flask gently into water bath, and determine the
adequate operational position.
5. Start rotation.
Set the control knob at the required speed to rotate. Operate the vacuum device as well for
evaporation.
●S ample Feed
Sample may be fed during operation without removing the evaporation flask.
1. Connect a teflon tube to the inlet feed cock.(id=6mm)
2. Slowly move the fed cock handle. Sample will be sucked into the flask.
6. Moving lift position
Stop rotation of motor before moving the lift. Scalding may occur due to dispersing
of
hot water.
7. End of operation
When the operation ends and you want to remove the evaporation or receiving flask , open the feed
cock to release vacuum.
8. Power failure.
The unit restarts operation once power is restored.
