For short-term measurements more than 160 Draeger Tubes are available to measure the so called spot concentrations of specific gases.

A wide range of different gases and vapors can be detected and measured, such as:

  • Determining and measuring concentration peaks
  • Measuring personal exposure in the inhalation area
  • Detecting leaks in pipelines, gas installations etc.
  • Air analysis in sewers, shafts and confined spaces
Standard Measuring Range: 1 to 15 ppm
Number of Strokes (n): 20
