- Model DF-22 Series - Digital Flow Meter Low Volume Air Sampler



The DF-22 environmental air sampling system with digital flowmeter is a low-volume air sampler consisting of an oil-less, carbon vane vacuum pump, with a constant air flow regulator for use where a nearly constant air flow is desirable. The regulator holds a constant pressure drop across an in-line orifice, by varying the flow through a bypass valve into the pump. This system allows the pump to work at a minimum pressure drop at all times, permitting it to run cooler, thus extending its service life. The oil-less pump requires no lubrication to maintain optimal efficiency during its service life. The pump is mounted on a removable base plate, which can be secured within the GFCI protected aluminum environmental weatherhouse, Model WH-3 having an enclosure rating of IPX3. The digital flowmeter has a large bright LED display.

The DF-22 environmental air sampling system is designed for continuous outdoor use. Please consult the product specifications for the design temperature range and the installation category. Standard product displays flow rate, elapsed time and totalized volume by operator selection.

The typical operating range is 0.5 to 4 CFM (14 – 115 LPM).
