with illuminated on/off switches for heating functions to prevent accidental activation. Further safety features include two independent overheat protection circuits; an emergency cutoff switch which completely shuts down all evaporator functions; automatic vacuum-leak safety cutoffs; implosionprotection housings; and IP67 compliant electrical connections. The easy-clip-flask connection system allows for ergonomic single-operator flask
