The XRF, Alpha, Fritsch ball mill and computers are sensitive to fluctuations in power. Drops and peaks in voltage can damage the systems up to a level that several internal parts need replacement, or that the machine is fully broken. The lab owner is responsible for maintaining good conditions for the lab equipment.
SoilCares advises to take precautions to prevent damage from power fluctuations. Use systems such as a UPS and surge protector.
Shut down your equipment when you experience a power outage or drops and peaks in voltage. Start working only when the electricity is stable again.
