Dräger tubes - Gas detection by colorimetric reagent tubes

Many different gases and vapors can be monitored with Dräger tubes. They are used, for example, to determine peak concentrations, measure exposure levels, detect potential leaks and analyze air in sewers, ducts, tanks or other confined spaces. With over 100 million units sold in the last ten years, Dräger tubes remain the uncontested leader in the field. 

Dräger's wide range of tubes
  1. Several million tubes sold, Dräger tubes are the standard for the instantaneous measurement of gas concentrations in ambient air. Used in combination with the Accuro hand pump or the X-act 5000 automatic pump, they are a simple, accurate, and cost-effective solution that requires no special technical skills.

    • More than 200 references of colorimetric reagent tubes for the measurement of more than 500 gases and vapors
    • Used in many fields of applications: peak concentrations, exposure levels, leak detection, air quality analysis, etc.
    • Operation in combination with a manual or automatic pump
    • Simple process for accurate measurement without special knowledge
    • Short measurement time: 5 seconds to 15 minutes

  2. The Accuro pump is a manual bellows sampling pump for measuring substances and gases with Dräger colorimetric reagent tubes. The pump body consists of a bellows which is compressed for measurement. When the bellows is released, the air is automatically pumped out, and the gas sample to be measured is sucked through the used reagent tube.

    • Easy-to-use bellows hand pump in combination with Dräger colorimetric test tubes
    • Integrated stroke counter for easy checking of the number of strokes performed
    • One-handed operation, suitable for use in ATEX areas
    • Integrated end-of-stroke indicator (pump stroke)
    • Integrated pipe cutter: Simple cutting of the pipes with a ceramic blade for a clean opening
  3. The X-act 5000 pump automatically performs the sampling required for gases, substances, and vapors measurement with Dräger colorimetric test tubes. Ideal for those that need a large number of pump strokes, it is equipped with a large LCD screen for displaying the results and can be used in hazardous areas (ATEX Gas).

    • Gas point measurement: Identification and configuration of the automated measures by barcode
    • Ex-approved for use in confined spaces and hazardous areas
    • Ideal for measurements requiring a large number of pump strokes
    • Large LCD screen: configuration and display of results
    • Illuminated indicators for errors and end of a measurement
  4. Dräger smoke tubes are used as airflow detectors. They allow to bring to light a leak of air and help to observe its point of origin, to know its speed and its direction. We use a rubber bulb to push air through the tube, creating a white smoke that is carried by any existing airflow and visible to the naked eye.

    • Complete airflow detector kit: a storage case, suction bulb, plugs, and ten smoke tubes
    • Quick identification of airflows by white smoke
    • Ergonomic design and easy-to-use device
    • Reclosable smoke tube for further use
    • Universal use

Dräger short-term measurement tubes can be used either manually in association with the Dräger Accuro pump, or automatically with the Dräger X-act 5000 pump. These gas detection devices are easy to use, require no special technical skills and offer excellent value for money.
