Dräger X-am® Pump

​The Dräger X-am® pump is an external pump for the portable gas detectors Dräger X-am® 2500, 5000, and 5600 – designed for clearance measurement, for example in tanks and shafts. The pump automatically switches on when it is connected to a running X-am® device. The change from pump mode to diffusion mode is fast and easy.

External pump

  • ​can be used with the gas detectors X-am 2500, 5000, 5600
  • for clearance measurement
  • pump starts automatically when connected to the gas detector

Easy to use

​The pump is attached onto the X-am 2500/5000/5600 and fastened with a clip. Pumping starts automatically once pump and running gas detection device are connected. The pump turns off automatically once it is removed from the device. Using the X-am with the pump has no effect on the measuring performance for standard gases.

Charging via USB

​The pump battery can be recharged using the micro USB port. A standard cellphone charger can be used for connecting. The charge status is indicated by an LED on the pump. A full charge requires approximately six hours.

Handy and robust

​The pump’s easily manageable 17.5 cm device height and a weight of only 200 g permit easy carrying and stowage. The Dräger X-am pump is dust and water resistant according to the IP67 protection classification. It performs reliably even at temperatures down to -40 °C. The battery is solid cast to protect against damage due to dropping or impact.

Effective range of measuring results: with explosion protection

​The pump can reach the ambient atmosphere in inaccessible places – up to a distance of 45 m, e.g. in channels, shafts, or tank systems. The pump has been optimised for hoses with a diameter of 3 mm – for fast response times and low power consumption.

The use of the pump in combination with a X-am device ensures you of consistently precise measuring results – even in the most demanding situations. Because the pump has an explosion protection approval for Ex zone 0. In combination with the Dräger X-am 2500/5000/5600, which are likewise approved for Ex zone 0, the X-am pump allows for secure and continuous monitoring of enclosed areas.

Long operating time for long deployments

​The pump is not only highly resilient on the outside but also inside. The battery capacity lasts for three workweeks at 8 measurements per day (i.e. up to 20 hours of continuous operation). Convenient: The operating time of the X-am is not decreased when the pump is in operation. Moreover, the entire pump operating time can be evaluated using CC-vision software.

Data logger

​Pump operating time, charge status, battery warnings, and flow alarm are displayed on the Dräger X-am and stored in the data logger. This makes it possible to display the results of the clearance measurements separate from the evaluations of personal monitoring.
