• Avoid high heat supply (e. g. due to hot process gases).

• Consider possible reactions of the process media due to the heat generated by

the product.

• In case of residues or aggressive or condensable media install a gas washing

bottle if necessary.

Remove the protective cover and keep. Connect the vacuum gauge head via small

flange to the vacuum application.

The vacuum gauge head may be mounted in any orientation, though an orientation

is to be preferred in which condensate cannot get into the measuring chamber.

Switch the DCP 3000 off before connecting the MPT 100 via VACUU•BUS cable to

the vacuum gauge.

When the device is brought from cold environment into a warm room for operation

bedewing may occur. Allow the device to acclimatise.

Soiling and damage effect adversely the function of the vacuum gauge head.
