Designed for field use, the reversible flow Peristaltic Pump from Solinst is ideal for vapor sampling or water sampling from shallow wells and surface water. It can be used for vacuum pumping and for pressure delivery of liquids or gases.
Compact and lightweight, the Peristaltic Pump has no vents, grates or openings. This makes it water resistant, easy to use in the field and easy to maintain and repair. The metal case is extremely robust and water resistant. A handle and one easyaccess control on the top of the pump make it perfect for fieldwork. The pump measures 13' x 5' x 6-1/2' (33 cm x 13 cm x 17 cm) and weighs only 8 lbs (3.6 Kg). The mechanical peristaltic operation uses rotating rollers to depress the silicon tubing, creating a vacuum, which displaces any fluid or gas in the chosen direction. It is effective to depths up to the suction lift limit, which varies with elevation, and can be as much as 33 ft or 10 m at sea level.
