SKC XR5000 Sampling Pump


With its wide flow range of 5 to 5000 ml/min, the XR5000 is the best choice for most air sampling applications. For greater worker acceptance, the XR5000 is lightweight and portable. The XR5000 air sampling pump is outfitted with a rugged impact-resistant RFI/EMI-shielded case with removable battery pack. Shielding protects the air flow from outside interference ensuring accurate air volumes and data validity; covers protect battery charging jack and computer interface port; CE-approved.
