One of the core features of the Evolution 6100 that differentiates it from the competition is the ability to run different temperatures in each position simultaneously. In addition the media volume and stirring element can also be varied for each vessel.
The ability to vary key parameters like temperature is important in formulations and R&D. During development n=6 testing is typically not required; therefore the 6100 allows users to increase their throughput by testing their formulations at different temperatures simultaneously on the same unit.
While you may already be aware of this capability, you may be unsure how to program the system to run such parameters.
Below you will find a step by step guide for setting individual temperatures in each position of the Evolution 6100.
Controlling Vessel Temperature Individually on the 6100
1- From the main screen select the MANUAL MODE wizard button.
2- Select INDIV VESSELS. Figure 1 below will then be displayed.
3- Highlight the desired vessel icon and press ENTER. Figure 2 below will now be displayed.
4- Highlight the TEMP field. Using the + and – keys change to the desired test temperature.
5- Highlight the STIR field. Using the + and – keys change to the desired stirring element (PAD for paddles or BAS for baskets).
6- Highlight the VOL field. Using the + and – keys change to the desired test volume.
7- Highlight the RPM field. Using the + and – keys change to the desired test RPM.
8- Highlight the ON/OFF field. Using the + and – keys change to the desired value (on or off).
9- To change setting for other vessels follow one of the two following methods:
a- Highlight the VESSEL # position and using the + and – keys change to the desired vessel number. Follow steps 5-9 to modify the test settings.
b- Highlight the BACK button and press ENTER. Select the vessel to modify from the screen displayed in Figure 3-29. Follow steps 5-9 to modify the test settings.
10- Highlight the BACK button and press ENTER.
11- Highlight the START button on the menu bar and press ENTER
