  • Load the 250 ml of volumetric flask with 100 ml of water into the Rotary shaker.
  • Place the radium sticker at edge/ middle of the rotary shaker base flat form.
  • Set the 50 RPM and run the system and perform the verification with calibrated tachometer and repeat the process for 200 RPM and recoed the observation.
