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.
A 12 ft. (4 m) 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). The pump may be connected directly to your
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.
The standard pump tubing is 5/8" OD (16 mm) medical grade
silicone, which attaches easily to 1/2" OD (13 mm) downhole
tubing. An adaptor kit, which allows the use of 3/8" OD
(10 mm) tubing, provides lower sampling rates. This tubing
attaches easily to 1/4" OD (6 mm) down-hole tubing.
To provide high sample integrity, the sample comes in contact only with the tubing. Replacing the tubing between locations avoids the possibility of cross-contamination. To reduce lengthy decontamination procedures, simply dedicate the inexpensive down-hole tubing.
