Sample Pump With 100' Sampling Tube

Fluid Sampling Pumps

Vampire Fluid Sampling Pumps are small, hand-operated vacuum pumps developed for oil sampling. The X-Models feature distinctive yellow heads made of lightweight, injection-molded nylon while the U-Models are fitted with clear, cast acrylic heads. Both are equipped with all aluminum parts to make great looking, durable pumps.

These pumps draw a vacuum of 27 inches of mercury. The patented tube coupling device accepts any size sampling tube (with an outside diameter of 3/16" through 5/16") without changing fittings. The sampling tube is inserted through the coupling device until the lower end extends below the top of the sample bottle. When the knurled knob is turned to tighten the seal, the vacuum will draw fluid directly into the bottle without coming in contact with the pump. This patented pump allows multiple samples to be taken without cleaning the pump between samples.


Sample Valve Ports With Sample Tubing

Mini-Gauge Plug

The Mini-Gauge Plug installs into a 1/8" pressure port allowing oil samples to be drawn while the equipment is still operating. Disposable tubes with insertion needles are used to withdraw the sample from the port into the sample bottle.
