Possible Displays During Sampling
Flow or Battery Fault Shutdown - If the pump is unable to compensate due to excessive back pressure or a low battery
condition exists, it will shut down and timing functions will pause. The LCD will display either a battery-shaped icon
or a flow fault icon ( ) depending on the cause of the shutdown. Upon flow fault, the pump will attempt to restart up
to five times. To restart from flow fault, correct the blockage and press the on/off button twice. The elapsed run time
display will reset to 0 when the pump is restarted. If the battery icon is displayed, recharge the battery before sampling.

Displayed Elapsed Run Time - Elapsed run time is displayed continuously on the LCD. For elapsed times after 999
minutes, the display still shows elapsed time but alternates between displaying the first two digits of the elapsed time
and the last three digits. For example, a pump that has run for 1,440 minutes would display first “01” and then “440.”
The display maximum is 99 999, which is 99,999 minutes.

Set/Calibrate Flow Rate for Multiple Tubes
Follow these important steps before proceeding.
1. Ensure that the battery is fully charged and that the pump has run for five minutes before calibrating. Leave pump running.
2. Prepare a calibrator (see calibrator instructions). Using flexible tubing, connect the calibrator outlet to the pump inlet.
3. Calculate the sum of all tube flow rates. The maximum flow rate through any one tube is 500 ml/min.*
a. If the sum is ≤ 1000 ml/min, set the pump flow rate to 1.5 L/min.
b. If the sum is > 1000 ml/min, multiply that number by 0.15 and total the two numbers. Set the pump flow rate for the resulting
new sum. (Example: Sampling with three sorbent tubes, each with a flow rate of 500 ml/min.* The sum of the tube flow rates is
calculated as 3 x 500 = 1500. Determining a 15% higher flow rate is calculated as 1500 x 0.15 = 225. Calculating the final pump
flow setting would be 1500 + 225 = 1725 ml/min.)
* Back pressure across some sample tubes can be higher than average. In these instances, the maximum flow rate of 500 ml/min per tube may not
be achieved.
4.
Set the pump flow rate by using a small screwdriver to turn the flow adjustment screw on top of the pump (Figure 1), clockwise to
increase flow or counterclockwise to decrease flow, until the calibrator indicates the required flow rate.
5.
Remove tubing from the pump inlet.
6.
Insert an opened sorbent tube into each rubber sleeve on a low flow tube holder (Figures 3 and 4). Ensure that the arrow on each tube
points toward the tube holder. Insert an unopened tube in any unused port.

10. Using flexible tubing, connect the outlet of the calibrator to the exposed end of the first sorbent tube in the holder (tube in the port
opened in Step 8) (Figure 4).
11. Do not adjust the flow on the pump. Adjust the flow rate through the sorbent tube by turning the flow adjust screw on the tube
holder (counterclockwise to increase, clockwise to decrease) until the calibrator displays the method-specified flow rate. Take a
minimum of three readings and record the average flow rate, as per OSHA/NIOSH instructions.
12. When the method-specified flow is set on the first tube, turn off the pump by pressing the on/off
button. Disconnect the calibration tubing from the first tube. Repeat Steps 8 through 12 for each
of the other active tubes. Note: Changing the flow on one tube will not affect the flow rate through the
remaining tubes.
13. When calibration is complete, turn off the pump by pressing the on/off button. Disconnect the
calibration tubing from the last sorbent tube.

Maintenance
Replace the Pump Inlet Filter
The AirChek 52 Sampler is fitted with a filter/trap just below the pump inlet. This prevents particles from
being drawn into the pump mechanism. The filter should be replaced periodically as follows:
1.
Grip the inlet fitting (see right) and turn it counterclockwise to unthread it.
2.
Holding the pump upside down, use a small flathead screwdriver or tweezers to remove the filter.
3.
Place a new filter in the inlet. Ensure that the rubber gasket inside the inlet fitting is still in place.
4.
Thread the inlet fitting back into place.
Replace the Battery Pack
Use of a repaired or rebuilt battery pack voids any warranty and the UL Listing for intrinsic safety.
1.
Loosen two security screws on bottom of pump case and allow them to fall to the out position.
2.
Pinch battery pack release arms and pull the bottom half of the pump case away from
the top half.
3.
Align arms on top half of case with slots on either side of the new battery pack
housing. Ensure that the back of the battery pack with the charging jack is on the
same side as the belt clip.

If the pump is unable to compensate for longer than 15 seconds due to excessive back pressure, the pump
enters flow fault. During flow fault, the pump stops, the fault icon appears on the display, and elapsed
time remains on the display. Auto-restart is attempted up to 5 times. Note: Elapsed time information
will be lost on restart.
LCD displays low battery icon and pump shuts down. LCD remains on.
LCD shows elapsed pump run time in minutes up to 99,999.
Note: Older pump models display elapsed time up to three digits (999) and then roll back to zero.
LCD always remains on. Displayed elapsed run time information resets when pump is started.

Appendix (Cont)
Typical Run Times
Table 1 contains the typical run times achieved when using a fully charged NiMH battery pack. Data is sorted by type of sample media.
All run times are listed in hours. Results are obtained using a new pump and new fully charged battery. Pump performance may vary.
Increases in back pressure during sampling due to buildup of sample on the filter can decrease battery life.
