MFG: Draeger

Petroleum Hydrocarbons Detection Tubes 100/a (10 - 2500 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 SensitivityMany other petroleum hydrocarbons
are indicated as well, but with different
sensitivities. It is impossible to
differentiate between them. Aromatics
are indicated, but only with low 
sensitivities. Carbon monoxide is
indicated in comparable concentrations
with about half the sensitivity.
