AirChek Essential Air Sampling Pump

Easy to use 5 to 5000ml/min Air Sampling Pump


AirChek Essential Touch PadThe SKC AirChek Essential Sample Pump is the latest SKC Sample Pump in the AirChek range. The SKC AirChek Essential is ideal for users who prefer the basic operation principle of SKC’s Basic Pumps such as the AirChek 52, the AirLite Series and even the XR5000 Sampling Pump but don’t have a need for datalogging and the extra features offered in SKC’s premier pump, the AirChek TOUCH.

Like the AirChek TOUCH Sample Pump, the AirChek Essential features a new packaging, increased durability, higher flow range (5-5000 ml/min) and also offers longer run times of up to 40+ hours at 2000 ml/min. With the ability to correct flow for changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure, the AirChek Essential also features tough no-slip anti-static case, bright running and status LEDs and an intuitive touch keypad operation.
