QuickTake 30 Sample Pump and Charger Overview

QuickTake 30 (with programmable timer) Sample Pump with Li-Ion battery pack, 110-240 V AC charger/adapter, and cassette/tubing adapter
Flow range: constant flow 10 to 30 L/min
Ideal for use with BioStage® impactor, BioCassette, Versa®Trap cassettes, Air-O-Cell cassettes, wall samplers, or impaction samplers that require flows to 30 L/min

The QuickTake® 30 air sampling pump offers constant flows from 10 to 30 L/min and run times up to 14 hours for sampling particulates. The pump is ideal for use with impactors, microvacuum cassettes, and spore traps.
The QuickTake 30 air sampling pump is not UL Listed for intrinsic safety.

Compare the information in this table to compensation range to determine appropriate applications.
Rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery, 7.4-volt, 10.4-Ah capacity, 77 Wh, or battery with AC charger/adapter (100-240 V)
Battery Recharge Time
(varies with battery capacity and level of discharge)
Approximately 5 hrs with approved charger
Typical Cumulative Run Time

Spore Trap cassettes (VersaTrap): 5 hrs at 15 L/min (battery only)
BioStage viable cascade impactor: 4 hrs at 28.3 L/min (battery only)
25-mm, 1.2-µm MCE filter: 9+ hrs at 10 L/min
To achieve, use QuickTake 30 with a fully charged battery and AC charger/adapter.
37-mm, 0.8-µm MCE filter: 14+ hrs at 10 L/min (battery only)

Note: The AC charger/adapter can be used to extend battery run time, but it is not a battery eliminator. Therefore, it will not provide indefinite run times.

Operating: 32 to 104 F (0 to 40 C)
Storage: -4 to 95 F (-20 to 35 C)
32 to 113 F (0 to 45 C)
Operating Humidity 0 to 95% non-condensing
Run Time Features
User-selectable features, user-adjustable presets. See Operating Instructions.
Preset timed runs: 1, 2, 5, 10, or 15 min
Manually set continuous run with manual shut-off: 1 to 999 min (repeats 1 to 999-min runs indefinitely until user stops pump or power supply is depleted)
Intermittent sampling:
User-set sample periods and sample delays. See Operating Instructions.
Flow Fault Features
If the pump is unable to compensate due to excessive back pressure, the pump will go into flow fault mode. Flow fault features are enabled as the default setting. Flow fault may be disabled at the user’s option. See Operating Instructions.
Flow fault: Flow fault displays immediately. Pump shuts off after 5 seconds.
Fault restart: Pump attempts restart every 10 seconds up to five times.
Media Compatibility
BioStage viable cascade impactor, VersaTrap spore trap cassettes, microvacuum cassettes, and other samplers that require flows to 30 L/min
Requires 3/8-inch ID tubing
ABS plastic
8.4 x 9.3 x 3.5 in (21.3 x 23.6 x 8.9 cm)
4.8 lbs (2.2 kg)
Noise Level Average < 64 dBA at 3 feet (37-mm, 0.8-µm MCE filter at 16.8 L/min)
Results are obtained using a new pump and new fully charged battery. Pump and battery performance may vary.

Do not operate or charge in hazardous locations. Not UL Listed for intrinsic safety.

QuickTake 30 High Flow Pump
Constant Flows for Dust, Mold, Bioaerosol, Asbestos, and More

The SKC QuickTake 30 constant flow diaphragm pump maintains a set flow rate throughout the sampling period, compensating for the inherent back pressure created by sampling media and for any increase in back pressure as sample collects on the media. Unlike similar pumps, the QuickTake 30:

    • Maintains true constant flow
  • Does not require a special rotameter or hot-wire anemometer for flow rate verification

Ideal for use with the BioStage
  BioStage Impactor attached to QuickTake 30 Sample Pump
QuickTake 30 with BioStage on mounting bracket

It's high flow sampling on the go! The portable SKC QuickTake 30 Sample Pump provides fast, easy sampling with the SKC BioStage Viable Cascade Impactor and one handed transport of pump and sampler. Use the simple mounting bracket accessory to attach the BioStage directly to the QuickTake 30 pump. There is no need for bulky accessories or line voltage. Sampling with an impactor couldn't be easier!
