MFG: Draeger

Methyl Acrylate Detection Tubes 5/a (5 - 200 ppm)

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 vapours can be detected and measured, e.g.: Determining and measuring concentration peaks, Measuring personal exposure in the inhalation area, Detecting leaks in pipelines, gas installations etc., and Air analysis in sewers, shafts and confined spaces.

Cross SensitivityOther compounds with C=C double bonds
are indicated, but with different sensitivities.
It is impossible to differentiate between them.
It is impossible to measure methyl acrylate
in the presence of hydrogen sulfide.
Hydrogen sulfide will discolor the indicating
layer black. Carbon monoxide in high
concentrations discolors the indicating layer
pale blue gray.
