SKC Pocket Pump TOUCH with SmartWave Mobile App

In the advent of this digital age, OS+H professionals will continue to see advances in monitoring technologies, including connected worker devices such as wearables and miniature sensors.

The heart of air sampling for compliance personal workplace monitoring involves a sampling pump drawing air from a worker’s breathing zone through an appropriate sample collection media and followed by laboratory analysis of the samples. While long-standing regulatory techniques involving these basic sampling devices will not change quickly, advances in pump technology are making air sampling easier and more accurate.

Through extensive research and development, the SKC Pocket Pump TOUCH with SmartWave Mobile App is launched, which exemplifies SKC’s commitment to quality and innovation in industrial
hygiene sampling equipment.

The new SKC Pocket Pump TOUCH revolutionizes the OS+H industry by featuring the first wireless touch-screen low-flow personal sampling pump, with Bluetooth connectivity, extended battery run times, an exhaust port for bag sampling, USB charging, and more in a miniature pump that fits in a pocket. When used with SKC sampling media such as sorbent sample tubes, the Pocket Pump TOUCH is efficient and accurate for performing TWA, STEL, and Ceiling sampling for organic gases and vapors.

In March 2019, the SmartWave Mobile App was launched to complement the SKC Pocket Pump TOUCH. This new development allows users to start/stop and adjust the sampling flow rate of the pump using IOS® and/or Android tablets and phones. The synergistic pairing of both the hardware and software features has expanded the field of application from the traditional compliance personal workplace monitoring of gases/vapors to wireless control and monitoring of sampling data from the pump.

The need for having remote control and communications to air sampling devices becomes clear. It is insufficient to monitor the hazards alone; technologies must be available, so that essential stakeholders such as workers, managers, and emergency responders can communicate the results in real-time. By utilizing wireless communications, modern sample pumps, such as the SKC Pocket Pump TOUCH, can send their operating status, remaining battery running time, current flow rate, and total sampled volume to personal mobile devices. These data are essential to know how the
actual sampling process is being performed, and all data can be viewed from a distance, without interrupting the worker or the work.

In essence, the ability and convenience to receive the information on pump condition and status of the sampling session, plus control devices remotely, increase the overall safety and productivity by eliminating unintentional errors, and also reassure modern safety and health professionals that the samples will be delivered with confidence on the sampling quality.

The OS+H Industry is modernizing before our very eyes. Wireless technology in personal sampling pumps will become one of the many modern tools of the trade for IH professionals.
