Gastec Detector Tube System for Confined Space Testing

TAMPA, FL – Nextteq’s complete line of Gastec pumps and detector tubes precisely measure gases and vapors in over 600 applications, making it an invaluable tool for testing toxic atmospheres in permit-required confined spaces.

Gastec’s pump is intrinsically safe, lightweight and rugged. With Gastec, you can rapidly measure many substances that can’t be measured with electronic gas detection devices. Measurement is fast, convenient, and accurate. The direct-read colorimetric tubes come with a single scale printed on each tube and offer distinct lines of demarcation for easier viewing. Gastec detector tubes are intrinsically safe and always ready to use anytime, anywhere.

Sampling of confined space atmospheres may require the use of additional Gastec accessories, such as the Telescoping Extension Pole or an Extension Hose. Gastec detector tubes, gas sampling pumps, and accessories are designed, manufactured, and calibrated to work together to produce accurate readings. Gastec Detector Tubes and Gas Sampling Pumps are manufactured by Gastec Corporation. Nextteq LLC is Gastec’s exclusive U.S. master wholesale distributor.
