Note: The images shown are for illustration purposes only and may not be an exact representation of the product.


The XC-53 Sampling Console from Apex Instruments is designed as a cost-effective entry level metering console for Isokinetic Sampling.  The console utilizes a backlit, sunlight readable screen, an easy-to-use 4 button keypad, and sensors for measuring temperatures and pressures. The Peak 32 MCM also allows for user-adjustable dampening for stable display of the ∆P and ∆H values. A USB interface is used for sensor calibration and firmware updates. The console uses an internal diaphragm pump, reducing the weight of the console and pump and can be easily adapted to all isokinetic methods including (OTM)-45 for PFAS. 


  • Rugged and lightweight roto-molded linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE/LMDE) case with 3 heavy-duty handles 
  • Digital display with backlit LCD screen  
  • SK-25 precision dry gas meter  
  • Digital PID temperature controllers for probe and oven  
  • Booster pump compatibility for additional flow  
  • Peak 32 MCM electronics package  
  • Digital timer and real-time clock  
  • Pressure damping (average over time)  
  • Membrane button pad to fully access console features  
  • Digital temperature display with 5 type-K thermocouple inputs plus DGM and internal  
  • Mounted case allows for easy service access  
  • Peak 32 microcontroller module (MCM) 


The XC-53 isokinetic source sampler console allows the operator to monitor gas velocities, temperatures, pressures, sample flow rates, and volumes for maintaining isokinetic sampling conditions. The Source Sampler console is easily adapted to test for a wide range of pollutants from stationary sources, such as particulate matter including PM 2.5 and PM10 fractions, metals, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins/ furans, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and many more pollutants with adaptations of the standard Method 5 isokinetic test.
