Airtec Regulator Kits for Testing Compressed Gas/Supplied Air

Nextteq’s Airtec Regulator Kits, featuring Gastec tubes, provide a simple method for detecting contaminants in compressed gas and supplied air. The special Airtec Regulator allows you to easily install Gastec tubes for measuring contaminants in air. Gastec’s Airtec tubes are based on their high quality detector tube technology, where a color change is clearly indicated on the tube after testing your compressed air and an accurate value is easily determined from the direct read scale. The kits are designed to meet the monitoring requirements for maintaining Grade D breathing air set by the Compressed Gas Association in Standard G- 7.1, and allow you to measure the following five contaminants: oil mist, water vapor, nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide.

Everything needed to conduct testing is included in the kits—no batteries or electric power required. Airtec Regulator Kits are intrinsically safe, do not require sensor calibration, and are always ready to use anytime, anywhere. With the Airtec Regulator Kit you only need to purchase tubes for those specific chemicals that you want to test for, unlike other commercially available kits that require that a complete series of pre- selected tubes be installed in a manifold – whether you want to measure those chemicals or not. The kits are lightweight and easy to transport to any test site. With no extensive training, non-technical personnel can easily use Airtec products.
