Question
Can you turn the DRB 200 be turned off before it cools to room temperature?
Summary
Turning the DRB 200 off before it cools to room temperature
Answer
Yes, but it is not good laboratory practice. A powered off reactor can not alert other technicians that the block is hot. Also, damage can occur to the instrument if you turn it back on before it cools back down to room temperature.
