(b) Principle of Operation. Figures on the dial, 26
through 31, represent inches of mercury, the standard means of
expressing atmospheric pressure.  Read the indicating hand, the one
cloest to the dial; it-responds readily to any change in atmospheric
pressure.  Use the set hand to note any change in pressure.  Position
the set hand directly over the indicating hand.  A few hours after
se'tting, not any change in pressure.  Position the set hand directly
over the indicating hand.  A rise in pressure is indicated by move-
ment of the indicating hand to the right.  A fall in pressure is
indicated by movement of the indicating hand to the left.

(1) Safety Features.
(a) Air-Purging System.  A 10 minute time-delay relay
is provided in the electrical system.  This prevents the supply of
power to all electrical circuits except the exhaust fan for 10
minutes after the unit is connected to the external power source.
Therefore, a 10 minute air-purge, which removes any accumulation of
explosive or toxic fumes, must take place before any operations can
be started.
(b) Automatic Gas Alarm.  A combustible-gas-mixture
alarm system for the detection of an accumulation of combustible gas
is also provided in the laboratory.  When a dangerous accumulation of
