410 Peristaltic Pump

410 Peristaltic Pump

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. The mechanical peristaltic operation uses rotating rollers to depress the silicone 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 10 m or 33 ft. at sea level.

 

The Solinst Peristaltic Pump features a clear pump head that allows quick, convenient inspection of the pump head tubing before and during operation. The pump head cover is easy to remove for cleaning or replacing the tubing. The pump head tubing guides are designed to keep the tubing in place during sampling, no extra tubing clamps required.

 

Power Source & Motor

A 3 m (10 ft.) power cord uses alligator clips to connect to almost any 12 volt DC power source that can supply at least 3–5 amps at maximum draw (such as auto, marine or small gel cell battery). Connect an optional 12V Battery Holder to the Pump and conveniently add a battery right to the assembly. The pump may also be connected directly to your vehicle battery. The variable speed motor is reversible, has an easy-to-reset circuit breaker (no fuse to replace), and has reverse polarity protection to prevent damage to the pump.

 

Sampling Rates

The Model 410 Peristaltic Pump has variable pumping rates, using two different sizes of silicone pump head tubing. With the standard 5/8" OD (16 mm) tubing it delivers 3.2 L/min. The 3/8" OD (10 mm) tubing adaptor kit allows a sample rate as low as 40 ml/min. This low rate is ideal for low-flow sampling and the filling of small sample bottles.
