Knowing that the lives of many individuals across numerous industries depend on the accuracy and longevity of gas detection products, Gas Clip Technologies have spent over a decade specializing in gas detection solutions that are durable, compliance-based, and affordable all while utilizing cutting-edge technology. For example, they were the first to apply infrared technology to gas detection, which in turn made detectors safer due to their improved longevity and reliability. Such ideals have been at the heart of every Gas Clip product, and their newest addition—the External Pump—continues that tradition.


This accessory is a single-button motorized sampling pump that gives any Gas Clip diffusion detector—single gas and multi gas—the ability to take remote samples from up to 75 feet away, drawing air at 2 feet per second. The pump is equipped with a 10-foot hose for extracting air samples and a 3-foot hose to connect the pump to the user’s detector. However, other hose lengths can be ordered separately. Also, like the MGC Pump, the External Pump is compatible with the MGC Pump Quick Disconnect (sold separately), which is an accessory that allows the user to effortlessly connect or disconnect a sampling hose to the pump. 


Audio and visual alerts will inform the user of possible errors including blockages in the hoses and a low battery charge. The average continuous run time is fifty-two hours, and the pump requires four to six hours (typically) to recharge using the wall charger that is included with the purchase of the External Pump. However, the pump is also compatible with the MGC Vehicle Charger as well as the MGC Multi-Charger (both sold separately).


Additionally, the sleek, ergonomic design of the pump allows it to sit comfortably in the user’s hand, which helps prevent potential drops. However, an alligator clip allows the user to firmly attach the pump to their belt, jumpsuit, etc. as needed. Either way, if the device does take a tumble, the durable casing can withstand the fall as well as other harsh treatment in the most intense environments. The External Pump comes with a two-year warranty and is available for pre-order now. All of Gas Clip Technologies’ products can be purchased through distributors worldwide.
