Personal sampler pump for charcoal tubes.
Rockville, MD: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Contract 099-71-0031, 1972 Sep; :1-27
This is a final report in a program aimed at developing a personal sampler pump for charcoal tubes. The design of the pump is such that a reciprocating diaphragm pump is driven through a crank by a miniature, battery-powered DC gear motor. The final prototype consists of a case, which houses the pumping mechanism, the controls, and the batteries, and a separate holder for the charcoal tube. The case is sufficiently small and light to be carried in a shirt pocket. The tube holder is clipped to the shirt collar, and the charcoal tube is connected to the pump through a length of plastic tubing. A description of the personal sampler pump and discussion of the work accomplished and of the test results are presented.
