Power Rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery, 7.4-volt, 9.6-Ah capacity, 71.04 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 (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.
Temperature Operating: 32 to 113 F (0 to 45 C)
Storage: -4 to 95 F (-20 to 35 C)
Charging: 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 impactors, spore trap cassettes, microvacuum cassettes, and other samplers that require flows to 30 L/min
Tubing Requires 3/8-inch ID tubing
Housing ABS plastic
Dimensions 9.3 x 8.4 x 3.5 in (23.6 x 21.3 x 8.9 cm)

‡ Results are obtained using a new pump and new fully charged battery. Pump performance may vary.
Do not operate or charge in hazardous locations. Not UL Listed for intrinsic safety.
Protect sample pump from weather when in use outdoors.
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
Can be calibrated with any primary standard calibrator for valid calibration
Does not require a special rotameter or hot-wire anemometer for calibration
Can be used with remote sampling wand and media that creates back pressure such as wall cavity samplers
