VAC-U-GO Air Sampling Pump

For Flows up to 30 L/min and Sonic Flow Applications.


Vac-U-Go Area Sampling Pump, for flows up to 30 L/min (2 to 13 for sonic flow applications), pump mounted in protective housing with vacuum gauge and valve, 115 V AC line operation, includes 3 ft of 3/8-in ID reinforced polyurethane tubing, power cord, tubing adapter, and extension rod for mounting media.

Supplied without orifices or rotameter and weighs 5.4kgs.

The Vac-U-Go non-compensating vacuum pump is a rotary vane-type pump that provides flows up to 30 L/min and maintains sonic flow when used with the SKC BioSampler. The AC-powered Vac-U-Go features a protective housing with handle and can be used for a variety of ambient and indoor air sampling applications including asbestos, bioaerosol, stack, VOC, and fenceline monitoring. It is ideal for sampling bioaerosols using the BioSampler or the AGI-30 Impinger. The SKC BioSampler does not require a critical orifice accessory for sonic flow. 
The line-operated Vac-U-Go Sampling pump has a permanently lubricated motor that is mounted in a housing with a vacuum pressure gauge to indicate sonic flow and a throttling valve to adjust flow. Both models are supplied with an extension rod for mounting media and a power cord. 
The Vac-U-Go Sampler can be operated in two different modes: non-compensating and BioSampler. Vac-U-Go is non-compensating, therefore, it is not suitable for compliance sampling in non-sonic mode. For indoor air studies, compliance, or other applications that require a quiet, compensating vacuum pump, use the QuickTake 30 Sample Pump.
