Sidekick Deluxe

The Sidekick is one of the most popular sampling pump meters around. It is a precision sampling multi-function pump for high and low sampling. This product is highly reliable and simple to use because it has been built to withstand the toughest of environments. This Kit comes with the Deluxe Sidekick, with ATEX Approval and Timers meaning it's suitable for use in Hazardous Environments. A snap-shut case controls the Sidekick so the unit cannot be accidentally shut off whilst it is in use.


  • Flow Range 5 – 3000 ml/min
  • Low Flow Capabilities
  • Multi Tube Sampling in Low Flow
  • Built in Particle Trap
  • Built in Dampener
  • High Accuracy Clock
  • Light Weight
  • Simple to Use
  • Manually Adjustable
  • Robust Case
  • Battery or Mains Operated

The Sidekick has a flow range of 5-3000 millilitres per minute. Additionally a CPC and a low flow adapter provide the option to sample gases and vapours for up to 500 millilitres per minute. Supporting multi-tube sampling at the same time from one pump all at different flow rates is an advantage of this system. The Sidekick is a popular choice because it has the ability to sample for different hazards without needing more than one pump. As the controls are under a "snap down" cover it prevents accidental operation, therefore it has been proven to be a winner with safety managers and hygienists.

Please Note: due to the large number of filter mediums available these are not supplied in the kits. These are available separately or from your chosen Laboratory. 

Bubble Film Flowmeter

This product is the Bubble Film Flowmeter and it checks the operation of air sampling equipment and it allows for simple and easy operation. You can calculate the flow rates if you attach a sampling pump to the top of a volumetric glass tube which contains liquid soap. When the pump is drawing in air through the tube the soap bubble will move from one marked point to the next one. You can then calculate the flow rate by the time of travel which is measured by a stopwatch. This kit is supplied with all the equipment which is required, except the stopwatch, for calibrating low flow personal sample pumps.


The SKC chek-mate Flowmeter is our easy to use differential pressure flowmeter for calibrating air flow sample pumps at flow ranges between 0.75 and 5.0 L/min. The chek-mate meets the accuracy requirements of MDHS 14/4.
