The Model 410 Peristaltic Pump is made for field use, as it is robust, water-resistant, and simple to use and transport.
For added convenience, it uses alligator clips with a 3 m (10 ft.) power cord to connect to a 12V DC power source to operate, such as a car battery. Optionally, connect a 12V Battery Holder to the pump to easily transport a battery into the field for shorter duration sampling applications. The pump has a quick-reset circuit breaker, and reverse polarity protection to prevent damage to the pump.
It provides vacuum pumping and pressure delivery of liquids and gases, up to the suction lift limit, which could be as much as 10 m (33 ft.) at sea level. It is ideally used to sample shallow groundwater and vapors in wells and Solinst Model 615 Drive-Point Piezometers.
The Peristaltic Pump has one control that allows reversible flow and variable pumping rates. It can be fitted with 2 different sizes of silicone pump-head tubing. The standard 5/8″ OD (16 mm) tubing delivers up to 3.2 L/min.
The 3/8″ OD (10 mm) tubing adaptor kit allows sample rates as low as 40 ml/min, ideal for low flow sampling and filling smaller sample bottles. The pump head design makes tubing very easy to change or replace.
