Gas Detection Tubes

Gas detector tubes are one of the classic measurement methods used for gas analysis. This versatile system can be used for numerous applications in industry, firefighting, disaster management, in the laboratory, for environmental protection and in many other areas.

The Dräger tube has been detecting poisonous carbon monoxide since the 1930s. In 1973, after the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health successfully tested the quality of Dräger gas detection technology, US safety inspectors began using Dräger tubes as their official detection procedure.

Dräger-Tubes® for short-term measurements

Dräger-Tubes® are glass vials filled with a chemical reagent that reacts to a specific chemical or family of chemicals. Detector tubes are a cost-effective, fast, and reliable way to measure toxic gases in the workplace. More than 250 different tubes are available for accurate spot measurements of over 500 gases and vapors. Applications include determination of concentration peaks, measurement of exposures in the inhalation area, determination of possible leakages and analysis of air in sewers, shafts, tanks, or other confined spaces.

Accuro Hand Pump

The Accuro manual gas detector pump is used for spot measurements with Dräger tubes. The body of the pump consists of a bellows, which is pushed together and released drawing the gas sample to be measured through the tube. The pump is easy to operate with one hand allowing reliable measurements in situations where mobility is limited and in locations that are difficult to access.
