The Dräger X-act 5000 Basic all-in-one, automatic pump is used in conjunction with the colorimetric Dräger-Tubes and simultest sets for taking measurements on the spot with direct reading results. The pump may be programmed to take from 1 to 200 strokes enabling measurements into the ppb range. The X-act 5000 Basic also features a constant flow mode for use with sorbent tubes like charcoal and silica gel at flow rates over the range of 0.1 to 2.0 L/min.
Automatic tube pump
• ideal for a high number of strokes.
• display for clear readability of results.
• can be used in explosive areas.
Versatile and robust
The automatic tube pump is compatible with Dräger short-term tubes as well as sampling tubes and systems. The robust housing supports the use of the pump to perform the daily measuring tasks under tough conditions. The ex-approved Dräger X-act® 5000 Basic can be used for confined space applications and in explosive gas atmospheres.
New pump concept
The key principle is the ability to provide the required flow characteristics of the short-term tubes, while also providing the option to be used with sampling tubes and Systems requiring constant flow. Compared to the Dräger accuro hand pump, this new concept reduces the average measurement time of the short-term tubes in case of a high number of strokes. The internal pump is also designed to use extension hoses up to a length of 30 meters (98 ft.).
Simplicity of operation
The handling of gases, vapors and aerosols has never been easier. The automatic tube pump directs the air to be measured through the appropriate Dräger-Tubes effortlessly. It is comfortably carried with one hand or using the shoulder strap and is easily operated, even wearing protective gloves. A simple and intuitive menu structure provides the user efficient operation with just a few button presses. Using the password-protected menu repetitive operating modes can be set.
Measurement in technical gases
To evaluate measurements in technical gases, the properties of the technical gas must be taken into consideration. Technical gases have a different viscosity than ambient air. Therefore, the flow of the pump must be set accordingly. Following the operating steps in the mode „Measurement in Technical Gases“, the Dräger X-act 5000 Basic will automatically be adjusted to the required flow parameter and the measurement result can be read directly.
Direct settings for sampling
Depending on the sampling tubes or systems, the required parameters for the test can be set directly, without the need for an external flowmeter. The X-act 5000 Basic automatically adjusts the flowrate. After setting the sampling time the pump can immediately be started. At the end of the measurement the pump will stop automatically. The set data, the elapsed time and the pumped volume will be indicated on the display.
