~ SAFE INSTALLATION of your HEADmaster SONIC BATH ~
Your HEADmaster Sonic Bath consists of two major assemblies. The Bath itself, containing the Base-mounted Transducer Pillars, the Heating Element, Temperature Set Knob & Thermostat Probe. The mains power on/off switch, and the operating controls are mounted on the front panel of the Generator, which supplies power to the Transducers.
NOTE; When you receive your new HEADmaster Sonic Bath the outer tank may be covered with a protective plastic covering to help protect the surface of the case. This is easily removed by pulling it away.
GET THE HEIGHT OF THE BATH RIGHT!!
The top of your HEADmaster Sonic Bath should be at a height that will allow the holding basket to be lower into, or raising from the bath and then moved to an adjacent surface, without the lifting any higher than necessary. About 800mm to the top of the tank from the floor would suit most people, but our suggestion is that time be taken by the operator to establish the most comfortable height to suit their stature. A laden basket can be quite heavy and if the unit is just placed on a standard height bench, and the baskets are being lowered or raised manually, then strain or accidents could occur.
DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE WEIGHT THAT A BENCH/TOP WILL BE SUPPORTING!!
A bench and it's top or shelf should be of sufficient strength and rigidity to support not only the weight of the bath, but also that of a full capacity of cleaning solution and the items loaded into the basket. The combined weight could be in excess of 150kgs so ensure that any supporting frame will do just that without danger of folding or collapsing.
PLACE THE GENERATOR OUT OF THE SPLASH ZONE!!
When items are lowered into, and lifted out of the bath, it is inevitable that some splashing of liquid may occur. The Generator is supplied with sufficient length of power lead to allow it to be placed clear of the bath in a convenient place. Don't put it so far away that the operator has to walk to the controls after loading the bath, but do place it in a position where is safe from being accidentally knocked, having objects dropped on it, or liquid splashed onto it.
KEEP THE POWER LEADS TIDY!!
The power leads supplied with your HEADmaster Sonic Bath and Generator are approx five metres long. Don't leave them loose on the bench or floor where they could cause accidents. The leads could be cut back (by an electrician), to a length more appropriate for the positioning of your unit, but this may hinder any future relocation or repositioning of the units. We suggest that any surplus cable should be neatly coiled up and tied, preferably at the Generator end rather than the Bath end, then tucked away where it is unlikely to get hooked up, wet, or damaged by other objects placed on top of it.
KEEP THE LID ON THE BATH!!
When not loading or unloading the bath, replace the lid. When the Bath is not in use this prevents objects from accidentally falling in and damaging the Base-mounted Transducers. The lid also helps prevent temperature loss from the solution. When the Bath is in use the Lid will help reduce any likelihood of atomised solution filling the air.
