Perfect for Dust monitoring applications the SKC personal sampling pump (The Sidekick) offers flow compensation, high and low flow sampling, reliability and design features to suit everyday demands in the toughest of industries. Simple things such as the controls being under a ‘snap down’ cover, preventing accidental operation and the smooth lines have proven to be a winner with hygienists and safety managers alike. Intrinsically safe and with a flow range of 5 -3000 millilitres per minute the Sidekick offers the answer in one. The addition of a CPC and low flow adapter provides the option to sample for gases and vapors up to 500 millilitres per minute. This system also has the advantage of supporting multi-tube sampling at the same time from one pump. The ability to sample for different hazards without the need for more than one pump, makes the Sidekick a popular choice.
