Fast and Accurate Identification of Unknown Chemicals with Nextteq First Response HazMat Kits

TAMPA, FL– As times and tactical situations change, so must the resources of our hazardous materials response teams. Nextteq meets these ever increasing demands by providing First Response HazMat Kits using Gastec Detector Tubes. Nextteq’s First Response Toxic Gas HazMat Kit and First Response Fire HazMat Kit identify unknown liquid and airborne compounds at a moments notice during potentially dangerous situations.

Nextteq’s portable HazMat Kits provide rapid identification of unknown chemicals and can detect contaminants competitors may miss. Our HazMat Kits offer accurate detection of a wide variety of chemical agents – many with lower detection limits than leading competitors. Nextteq offers the only HazMat kits that include a VeriAir Flex Manual Inflating Gas Sample Bag. This allows the collection of an air sample from within the Hot Zone that can be safely passed outside the Hot Zone for subsequent testing.

This lightweight and ergonomically designed kit is maintained in a rugged, watertight Pelican case keeping your valuable equipment safe and dry while remaining easy to transport and providing immediate onsite evaluation. All the components needed to detect potentially hazardous chemicals are included; a model GV-110 Gastec gas sampling piston pump, an extension hose (Toxic Gas Kit only), a gas detection manual, Gastec detector tubes, and a simple to use logic chart. No calibration or electrical power is required, so the kits are always ready to use. Nextteq’s HazMat kits can also be customized for unique applications.

Gastec Detector Tubes and Gas Sampling Pumps are manufactured by Gastec Corporation. Nextteq LLC is Gastec’s exclusive U.S. master wholesale distributor.
