Safety and Precautions
The safety of our customers is paramount, and we at TesTur Energy have designed our Tesla Turbine prototypes with this in mind. We encourage you to read through this section carefully and adhere to all safety precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience with our prototype.
1. OPERATION SAFETY
Turbine Stability: To prevent accidental movement or tipping during operation, always secure the turbine to a stable surface.
Temperature and Speed Limits: Do not exceed the safe operational temperature of 85°C or the maximum safe RPM of 30,000 with the aluminum discs. Exceeding these limits can lead to damage to the prototype and potential safety risks.
Pressure Limits: Do not exceed 40 psi at the nozzle. Overpressurization may cause harm or damage.
Safety Equipment: Always use safety equipment such as safety goggles, gloves, and a sturdy enclosure or blast shield during operation. This equipment is necessary to protect against potential harm from parts that might dislodge during operation or debris from the air or water sources used.
Operation Environment: Do not operate the turbine in an enclosed space or near animals, individuals, or valuable property where harm or damage may occur.
2. MAINTENANCE SAFETY
Depressurization and Cool Down: Before performing any maintenance tasks, ensure the turbine is switched off, completely depressurized, and has cooled down to a safe temperature.
Bolt and Screw Inspections: Regularly check the torque specification on all bolts and screws. Loose connections can lead to an unsafe operating environment.
Handling During Maintenance: When inspecting or cleaning the turbine, avoid direct contact with sharp edges or hot surfaces. Wear protective gloves during this process.
Following Maintenance Guide: When replacing parts or performing routine maintenance, always follow our step-by-step maintenance guides provided on our TesTur Energy YouTube channel. Following our instructions ensures you maintain your turbine correctly and safely.
3. STORAGE SAFETY
Storage Environment: Always store the turbine in a dry, clean environment away from direct sunlight or high-temperature areas. These conditions can prolong the lifespan of your Tesla Turbine.
Safe Keeping: Keep the turbine out of reach of children or individuals unfamiliar with its operation. This precaution is essential to avoid accidents or improper handling.
4. TRANSPORTATION SAFETY
Handling During Transportation: When transporting the turbine, avoid dropping, dragging, or hitting the unit against hard surfaces. Improper handling during transportation could lead to damage or potential safety risks.
Storage During Transportation: Store the turbine in a sturdy, padded case or box during transportation. Ensure the turbine is secure and will not shift or move around during transport.
Remember, all responsibility for any damage or injury resulting from the operation, maintenance, storage, or transportation of the Tesla Turbine prototype lies with the user. TesTur Energy LLC or Heat And Power LLC is not liable for any damages or injuries due to use or misuse of the product. Your safety is our primary concern, and by adhering to these guidelines, you are increasing your odds of ensuring a secure and rewarding experience with our Tesla Turbine prototype.
