Solinst Canada Ltd. has introduced a new accessory for the 410 Peristaltic Pump that the company says makes it even more convenient for sampling shallow groundwater, surface water and soil gas in the field.

The 410 Peristaltic Pump uses a 12V DC power source to operate. The new 12V Battery Holder connects to the pump so a user-supplied 12V battery becomes an integral part of the assembly, making the pump ideal for shorter duration sampling applications that require more portability.

Solinst says the 12V Battery Holder is ergonomically designed and requires no tools to connect. It fits all versions of the Peristaltic Pump. The holder features a handle that keeps the pump balanced even with the added battery.

The entire 410 Peristaltic Pump design was recently updated to make it more durable and user-friendly. It features a clear pump head that allows quick inspection of the pump tubing before and during operation. It is easy to remove for faster cleaning or tubing replacement. The fuse was eliminated and replaced with an easy-to-reset breaker switch, meaning no fuse replacements are ever required.

The company says the Peristaltic Pump is made for the field. It’s designed to be robust, lightweight and simple to operate, using one control that enables reversible flow and various speeds. It offers high- or low-flow sampling with rates from 40 ml/min to 3.2 L/min. It is effective to depths up to the suction lift limit, which can be as much as 10 meters or 33 feet at sea level.
