(1) Inlet Boss
The Inlet Boss is located on the filter housing and
provides a built-in means of attaching tubing for
suction sampling.
(9) Discharge (Bag Sampling) Boss
This is an accessory which, when installed into
the Outlet Port, provides a means for filling air
sampling bags.
(2) Air Inlet Pump Filter
A 10 Micron Nylon Air Inlet Pump Filter protects
the pump assembly from dirt.
(11)Charging Jack
The Charging Jack receptacle is used to connect
a charger for recharging the internal battery
pack.
(3) Flow Adjustment (requires slotted screwdrivwer).
(12)Belt Clip
(4) Battery Check
This green LED (B) indicates that sufficient battery
power is available to run the pump for an 8 hour
period under normal load conditions.
(5) On/Off Switch
(6) Fault Indicator
This red LED (F) indicates a flow fault due to excessive pressure or insufficient battery voltage to
maintain flow.
(7) Clock Display (DC Model only)
The Clock Display shows the continuous run-time
(in minutes, to two decimal places), and will lockin the sample time upon fault indication. The time
will reset to zero when the power switch is turned
OFF and then back ON again.
(13)Rechargeable Battery Pack
(14)Tube Breaker Assembly.
(15)Mode Indicator
The Mode Indicator visually confirms the sampling mode selected (via a Black/White indicator)
(16)Mode Selector
The Mode Selector is used to change the sampling mode. The selector is used for unlocking,

2.2 Field Calibration/Flow Verification
Field calibration (flow rate verification) must be performed before sampling and when setting the flow
rate.
5) Turn on the pump using a pointed instrument
such as ball point pen [5].
• See Figure 2.2 for Constant Flow
6) Make sure the Gilibrator 2 is on and working.
• See Figure 2.3 for Multi-Flow
7) Set the pump flow rate as follows:
1) Insert the hex key [1] into the hex head screw on
the pump.
2) Turn the key counterclockwise [2] to change the
mode.
3) Continue turn the key until the mode indicator
shows black for constant flow [Fig. 2.2, #3] or
white for multi-flow [Fig. 2.3, #3].
4) Turn the key clockwise [4] to lock your selection
into place.
REF F-PRO-1725 (F)
Constant Flow: Use a slotted screwdriver to
make flow adjustments on the pump itself
[Fig. 2.2, #6].
Multi-Flow: Use a slotted screwdriver to make individual flow adjustments on the sampling device
[Fig. 2.3, #6].
8) When desired flow rate has been reached, turn off
pump and Gilibrator 2. The pump is now ready
for sampling.

2.3 Taking A Sample
1) Use a pointed instrument such as a ball point pen to turn on the pump.
2) Place the pump, tubing and sampling device on the worker as shown in Figure 2.4.
3) When sampling is completed use a pointed instrument such as a ball point pen to turn off the pump.
Record the sample data.
Note for Clock Models
When the pump is shut off after a sample run, the accumulated run time minutes (to the nearest 0.01
minute) are displayed. To calculate totaled air volume sampled, use the following formula:
Total Air Volume (Liters) = Air Flow Rate (cc/min) x Sample Time (minutes) ÷ 1000 cc/Liter

SECTION THREE
MAINTENANCE
3.1 Battery Maintenance
• Chargers
NOTE
Do not charge battery pack while
in an explosive atmosphere.
The LFS-113 pump uses rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium
batteries that must be fully charged and properly
maintained for maximum run time. The battery pack is
rated at 4.8 Volts (720 mAh).
Make certain charger plug is fully inserted into jack on
battery pack (see Figure 1.2, #11 for charger jack
location).
CAUTIONS & NOTES
Both charger and battery pack become warm during
charging.
Do not short battery terminals. Shorting will blow internal fuse.
• Memory Effect
Nickel-Cadmium batteries will develop reduced capacity when they are not fully discharged and then fully
recharged after sampling. Memory effect takes time to
develop and can usually be eliminated by performing
two complete discharge/recharge cycles on the pump.
• Leakage Current
Nickel-Cadmium batteries always have a small internal
leakage current. If the battery pack has been removed
from the charger for more than two days without use,
it will require additional charging to restore it to full
capacity. This process can be repeated two or three
times without causing signs of memory effect.
Single Station Charger
A constant-rate single-station charger that is suitable
for both overnight charging and weekend charging.
LFATR Multi-Station Charger
A dual rate charger offering five-station timed
constant-rate charging that automatically defaults to
trickle charge.
NOTE
Both chargers can be damaged by line transients and
overvoltage. While not a common problem, long term
reliability can be improved by use of a
surge/overvoltage protector.
3.2 Filter Maintenance
Under normal operating conditions, the pump filter
should be changed after approximately six months or
250 hours of operation, or when needed.␣ Failure to
change the filter as it becomes dirty will decrease the
pump’s back pressure capability and performance envelope.
• See Figure 1.1, #1
Blow all dust and debris from around the Filter
Housing.␣ Grasp the knurled edge of the filter housing
assembly and rotate counterclockwise.␣ Check the new
filter housing assembly to make sure that the sealing
O-ring is present on the internal boss.␣ Install the new
Filter Housing Assembly onto the pump rotating the
knurled edge clockwise.␣ Do Not Overtighten!
Battery pack has an estimated life of 300–500 charge/
discharge cycles, depending on use. Table below shows
estimated battery life based on usage level.
