If you notice that the device is not running smoothly, the speed
must always be reduced until no more uneveness occurs in the
Because of improper loading and the position of the center of
gravity, dynamic forces may arise during the agitation process
that cause the shaker to move about on the table. For limits on
the load or the weight placed on the agitation table at high sha-

„Weight placed on the table“ (just before the list of spare parts).
After an interruption in the power supply during an agitation pro-
cedure, the device will not start running again by itself.
Additional hazards to the user may occur if inflammable materials
are used during the shaking operation.
Furthermore, the shaking unit may only be used to stir those
materials or material mixtures that the user knows will not react
dangerously to the extra energy produced by the stirring. This also
applies to extra energy by means of solar radiation during the sha-
