MFG: Draeger

Oxygen Detection Tubes 5%C (5 - 23 Vol.%)

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.

Additional InformationThese tubes become very warm during
measurement, reaching temperature of
approx. 100°C. Therefore these tubes
should not be used in potentially combustible
atmospheres. If in doubt, test the area
before using the tube with a combustible
gas monitor, before using the tube.
