Solinst Peristaltic Pump is lightweight and compact
with easy access controls. The metal case is extremely
robust, water resistant, and has no grates or
openings. Ideal for fast sampling to depths of
25 or less. Convenient purge and sample
settings allow for purge rates to 3 l/min and
sampling rates to 60 ml/min.
mechanical peristaltic operation is effective
to depths of 28 ft(8.5m) at sea level, being
limited only by the suction lift limit.
Solinst Peristaltic Pump has a variable pumping
rate and can deliver from 60 ml/min. in sample
mode and as much as 3 litres/min. in the purge

Quality VOC Samples
When sampling for volatile organics using the
Peristaltic Pump it is advisable to collect
samples in-line, ahead of the pump, to avoid
the stripping of volatiles from the sample.
The Solinst VOA Bottle Filler, Model 470 is
ideal for this. It holds 3 standard 40 ml bottles.
is also useful to place a Flow-Through Cell
in-line, to allow the water to be monitored
for the conductivity, pH, temperature or other
appropriate parameters. When the readings stabilize
the operator can be sure that the sample bottles
now contain fresh formation water.
The pumps operate using any external 12 volt
DC supply at 3-5 amps maximum. The variable
speed motor is reversible and is equipped with
a 5 amp internal fuse and blocking-type reverse
power cord, 12 ft (3.66 m) long, is included
with each Peristaltic Pump. The power cord is
fitted with alligator clips for easy connection
to almost any 12 volt DC battery, such as a
car battery or a small 12 v x 6.5 AH gel cell.
