The TUFF range of personal air sampling
pumps offer the user an extremely robust,
rubber over-moulded unit designed
specifically for use in harsh monitoring
environments. With the range offering a wide
flow rate from 5 ml/ min* to 4.5 l/min.
TUFF pumps are ideally suited to a wide
range of occupational health sampling
applications from simple abatement sampling
of lead and asbestos, to more specialised
industrial hygiene monitoring of dusts, fumes
and vapours. The units offer excellent
functionality at a competitive price.
TUFF has been ergonomically designed for
user comfort with easy to read display and
high intensity alarm LED’s for fault indication.
The TUFF range meet EN1232 and NIOSH
0600 requirements for personalised sampling
pumps in workplace environments.

‘Fuel gauge’ display for battery information
Intelligent Battery Maintenance and Charging
The TUFF pumps convenient charging cradle allows single or
multiple pumps and separate battery packs to be charged.
Intelligent battery monitoring and fast / trickle charge control
maintains optimum battery condition and service life. Full charge
can be obtained in typically less than 5 hours on fast charge.
Embedded battery pack intelligence tracks state of charge, and
long term battery condition.
Single or 3 way charger formats
Allows tidy, compact charging and storage of multiple units
Small storage footprint
Integral Charge Status LED in spare battery packs
TUFF Pump Range /Functionality
TUFF pumps are available with either 3 or 4.5 l/ min maximum flow
rate capability. Standard, Plus and Pro models then provide
different levels of functionality and programmability:
TUFF Standard Models:
Entry level pumps for abatement and general sampling
applications. With simple single point flow setting, elapsed run
time counter and run mode only. Simple battery life indication.
Drop in fast charger.
TUFF Plus Models:
Offer additional functionality including: Display of flow set point,
real time flow rate, accumulated sample time and volume.
Programmable Run Duration mode. Upgradeable to Pro.
Intrinsically Safe (I.S.) Models:
I.S. models are used where hazardous atmospheres can be
present from flammable gases or dusts. In this situation, IS models
should be used. Additional models are available which satisfy the
stringent requirements of mining applications that are rated to
‘M1’, the only pump in the world to have this level of certification.
TUFF Pro Models:
Offers advanced program functionality and download
capabilities suited to the most demanding occupational and
industrial hygiene applications. Offers all functionality of the Plus
model with the addition of:- Intelligent Hours Remaining Battery
‘Fuel Gauge’, Time Weighted Average (TWA) sampling mode,
2 user defined timer programmes (9 on / off times) and onboard
data logging for up to 100 runs with download capability to Casella
Insight Data Management Software (see separate data sheet).
The units operate from removable 4.8V Nickel Metal Hydride
(NiMH) rechargeable cells.
There are two capacities:
1.7Ah standard pack for general short term monitoring
applications or the high capacity 2.7Ah versions where longer
sampling durations may be required.
