Grab Air Sample Pump
Economical Pump for Filling Bags

Bag Sampling Train With Grab Air Sample PumpThe SKC Grab Air Sample Pump is an economical choice for grab-and-go bag sampling. Grab Air operates at a fixed flow rate of 1 L/min for up to 1000 liters volume on one 9-volt battery. Simply attach a sample bag to the outlet port and turn on the pump. Simple, quick, economical — Grab Air.

Principle of Operation

The Grab Air Sampler pulls air containing the sample into the pump at approximately 1 L/min and immediately exhausts it into a sample bag connected to the pump with PTFE tubing. Sampling is complete
when the bag is properly filled. See Bag Sampling.

Bag Sampling

Sampling Tips

  • Use only PTFE tubing and a PTFE-lined septum for bag sampling to prevent sample loss.

  • Flush bags thoroughly with purified air or nitrogen before use.

  • Do not use bags to collect unstable or highly reactive compounds.

  • Do not ship sample bags by air unless the cargo cabin is pressurized.

  • When sampling for CO or CO2, use SKC Standard FlexFoil (263 and 263 Series) or FlexFoil PLUS (252 and 253 Series) Grab Bags.

  • Avoid filling any bag more than 80% of its maximum volume. Visually inspect the bag as it is filling to determine when sampling is complete.
