Re: [Histonet] CAP Microwave ?s
this is what we did. We purchased a tabletop fume hood from Mopec and a
microwave leak detector from Lab Safety Supply (I think it was under $80).
I looked at our range of times we used and set up a chart that had 15, 30
and 60 seconds with 3 rows each.
I placed a beaker with distilled water and a calibrated thermometer and
recorded the temps for three times. I used new water each time.
At the time the microwave was on, I ran the meter all around the
microwave and recorded the results.
I didn't make it elaborate because I like the KISS method. It answers
all the questions and it's recorded.
I'd be willing to give you a copy of my procedures and charts. Just
email me at work:
Hopes this helps.
