Chemical detector tubes from different manufacturers work on the same principle and they use similar or same sensing chemicals for detecting the target gas concentration. However the physical dimensions of the tubes and the pump design to draw the required 100 ml of sample air varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
With our newly introduced KwikDraw Tubes based on MSA Detector Tubes Technology which we acquired recently and Uniphos Detector Tubes which we already have since 1996, we have detector tubes matching tubes from any manufacturers across the world.
The combination of KWIK-DRAWâ¢ detector tubes and pumps offers a quick yet precise measuring system to detect hazardous gases and vapours. The filling material in detector tubes is calibrated and adjusted to the required test gas and will change colour if this gas is present. The length of this discoloration indicates the concentration of the hazardous gas or vapour and can be measured by a printed scale on most of the tubes.
