The Universal PCXR8 personal or area air sampling pump features a 5 to 5000 ml/min flow range, programmability, and up to 12-hour run times or extended intermittent sampling for particulates and gases/vapors. The pump is ideal for use with sorbent tubes, filter cassettes, size-selective samplers, sample bags, and impingers.
The Universal PCXR8 air sampling pump is UL Listed for intrinsic safety.



Performance Profile

Flow Range

1000 to 5000 ml/min (UL Listed model)
(5 to 500 ml/min requires the 224-26 Series adjustable tube holder)
Requires 1/4-inch ID tubing

34 oz (964 gm)
5.1 x 4.7 x 1.9 in (13 x 11.9 x 4.8 cm)
Compensation Range
1000 to 2500 ml/min at 40 inches water back pressure
3000 ml/min at 35 inches water back pressure
4000 ml/min at 20 inches water back pressure
5000 ml/min at 10 inches water back pressure
Typical Back Pressure
See Table 1.
Flow Control
Holds constant flow to ± 5% of set-point
Run Time
NiCad Battery: 8 hrs minimum at 4000 ml/min and 20 inches water back pressure; dependent on media used. See Table 3.
NiMH Battery: 12 hrs minimum at 4000 ml/min and 20 inches water back pressure; dependent on media used. See Table 2.
Battery Eliminator: Pump will provide extended runs.
Tubing Requires 1/4-inch ID tubing
Timer Display Range
1 to 9999 minutes (6.8 days). Pump will shut off at 9999 minutes. To reset, restart the pump.
Flow Indicator
Built-in rotameter with 250-ml division; scale marked at 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 L/min
Charging Time
(varies with battery capacity and level of discharge)
6 to 8.5 hrs with PowerFlex charger
Power Supply
6.0-V plug-in NiMH battery pack, rechargeable, 3.5-Ah capacity or
6.0-V plug-in NiCad battery pack, rechargeable, 2.0-Ah capacity
A battery eliminator is available (see Ordering Information); use voids the UL Listing for intrinsic safety.
Intrinsic Safety

UL Listed for Class I, Division 1 and 2, Groups A, B, C, D; Class II, Division 1 and 2, Groups E, F, G; and Class III, Temperature Code T3C
ATEX-approved model is available. Contact SKC

Operating Temperature
32 to 104 F (0 to 40 C)
Storage Temperature
-4 to 113 F (-20 to 45 C)
Charging Temperature
50 to 113 F (10 to 45 C)
Operating Humidity
0 to 95% non-condensing
Flow Fault
If the pump is unable to compensate for longer than 15 seconds due to excessive back pressure, the pump enters flow fault. During flow fault, the pump stops, displays FLOW FAULT, pauses timing functions, and displays elapsed time or pump time. Auto-restart is attempted up to 5 times.
Low Battery Fault
Pumps stops, displays LO BATT, pauses timing functions, and displays elapsed time or pump time.
Battery Test
LCD indicator shows battery condition prior to sampling
Time Display
LCD displays up to 9999 minutes (6.8 days) at which point the display rolls over to 0. Displays include sampler run time in minutes for sampling period elapsed time, pump run time, or total elapsed time including delayed start
Delay On
Allows user to select minutes to delay start of test up to 9999 minutes (6.8 days)
Timed Shutdown
Allows user to select minutes of operation before automatic shutdown. Timed shutdown maximum is 9999 minutes (6.8 days)
Timing Accuracy
± 0.05% (± 45 sec/day)
Intermittent Sampling
Programmable to allow user to extend short-term samples over an extended period of time to meet time-weighted average (TWA) requirements with a reduced number of samples. Elapsed time maximum is 9999 minutes (6.8 days), at which time the sample pump shuts down.
Sampling Pause
Allows user to temporarily halt sampling without loss of timing data. Restart does not require resetting time.
Multiple-tube Sampling
Built-in constant pressure regulator allows user to take up to four simultaneous samples with rates up to 500 ml/min each (total combined flow 1350 ml/min maximum) using the optional adjustable tube holder accessory
RFI/EMI Shielding
Complies with requirements of EN 55022, FCC Part 15 Class B, EN 50082-1
Frequency range of the radiated susceptibility test was 27 to 1000 MHz
CE marked

Built-in particulate trap
External see-through filter housing
Tamper-resistant control cover
Tamper-resistant compensation adjustments
Built-in accessory mount
Stainless steel belt clip
External exhaust port
All non-plastic parts made of corrosion-resistant materials
RFI and EMI-shielded case
Additional Features
One-year warranty
Ultra-quiet operation
Pulsation-free flow
