Gastec Detector Tube System for Hydrocarbon Processing Applications

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 gas detection, leak detection, and measurement of fugitive emission levels in hydrocarbon processing. Use Gastec Detector Tubes to sample for the presence hydrocarbons and hydrocarbon processing gases such as vinyl chloride, hydrogen sulfide, alcohols, and a wide variety of other hazardous gases and vapors.

Gastec’s pump is easy-to-use, lightweight and rugged. Its one-stroke piston action provides reliable operation with no partial samples. Nextteq’s Thermal Ring provides on-the-spot measurement of ambient temperature for tests that require temperature correction.

Measurement is fast, convenient, and accurate. The direct-read length of stain tubes offer distinct lines of demarcation for easier viewing. Gastec Detector Tubes are intrinsically safe and always ready to use anytime, anywhere.

With Gastec, you can rapidly measure many substances that can’t be measured with electronic gas detection devices, and no other detector tube manufacturer can measure more substances than Gastec.
