MAXIMUM ROTATION RATE: 4000 RPM — Never exceed maximum rotation rate when working with rotating electrodes.
When changing 15.0 mm OD cylinders on this precision shaft, be very careful not to overtighten the PEEK nut onto the end of the shaft. It should only be finger tight when sealing the cylinder between two fluoroelastomer washers. If the nut on the end is overtightened, the washer may bulge and cause leakage of electrolyte into the stainless steel shaft. This can result in severe corrosion and irreparable damage to the shaft and may also affect electrochemical measurements.
Dummy inserts made from PTFE can also be purchased for general cleaning and storage of 15 mm OD RCE shafts.
