Solinst Model 410 Peristaltic Pump
- 5/8" OD medical-grade silicon tubing attaches easily to 1/2" OD down-hole tubing
- 5/8" tubing delivers from 120 ml/min to almost 3.5 L/min sampling rate
- 12 ft. power cord uses alligator clips for easy connection to nearly any 12VDC power source
The Solinst Model 410 is designed for field use. The reversible flow Solinst Model 410 Peristaltic Pump is ideal for vapor sampling or water sampling from shallow wells and surface water. It can be used for vacuum pumping and pressure delivery of liquids or gases. The mechanical peristaltic operation uses rotating rollers to depress the silicon tubing, creating a vacuum, which displaces any fluid or gas in the chosen direction. It is effective to depths up to the suction lift limit, which varies with elevation, and can be as much as 33 ft or 10 m at sea level.
Compact and Lightweight
The Solinst Model 410 Peristaltic Pump has no vents, grates or openings. This makes it water-resistant, easy to use in the field and easy to maintain and repair. The metal case is extremely robust and water-resistant. A handle and easy-access control on the top of the pump makes it perfect for fieldwork. The Solinst Model 410 pump measures 13 x 5 x 6-1/2 (33 cm x 13 cm x 17 cm) and weighs only 8 lbs (3.6 Kg).
A 12 ft. (4 m) power cord uses alligator clips to allow easy connection to almost any 12 volt DC power source that can supply at least 3-5 amps at maximum draw (such as auto, marine or small gel cell battery). The pump may be connected directly to the vehicle battery. The variable speed motor is reversible, has an easily replaced fuse, and has reverse polarity protection to prevent damage to the pump.

In The News
The value of multi-lake studies is well understood by international organizations like the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) and the scientists who work tirelessly to provide data to the larger network. Rebecca North, an associate professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia , is one of many researchers involved in multi-lake research initiatives and conducting research locally in her home state.
Having been born and raised on the shore of Lake Ontario, North grew up in a community that revolved around water. She also saw firsthand one of the worst water quality bodies of the world, the Bay of Quinte, decline throughout her lifetime.Read More
It is no secret that in today's world, most scientists do not stick exclusively to science–they must be educators, communicators, and advocates. The looming threats facing the planet's climate and the growing distrust in science by the public have forced scientists to expand and improve their capacity for science communication to the world.
From repeatedly testifying before the U.S. Congress to winning an Emmy as the Chief Scientific Advisor for an award-winning nature documentary, marine ecologist James W. Porter has been thrust into the public eye.Read More
Historically, water quality monitoring during the winter has been difficult and often avoided altogether—however, monitoring throughout the year can highlight the influence of various environmental stressors and track the changes systems undergo during the winter. In particular, long-term monitoring efforts in systems like Mohonk Lake can underline the effects of climate change and acid rain.
David Richardson, a professor of biology at the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz , spends his time outside of the classroom monitoring the nearby watersheds. After getting his engineering undergraduate degree, Richardson realized he wasn't interested in the typical job offerings and applied to an ecological science graduate program at the University of Maryland.Read More
