Gastec Detector Tube System for Laboratory Air Monitoring

Nextteq’s complete line of Gastec pumps and detector tubes precisely measure airborne levels of various gases and vapors in over 600 applications, making it an invaluable tool for gas detection in laboratories as well as laboratory health and safety.

Measurement is fast, convenient, and accurate. Gastec’s piston pump is easy-to-use, lightweight and rugged. The direct-read length of stain tubes offer distinct lines of demarcation for easier viewing. Gastec’s Dosimeter tubes are direct-read, long-term sampling tubes that allow users to make time-weighted average measurements.

Gastec pumps and detector tubes can rapidly measure many substances that can’t be measured with electronic gas detection devices. Gastec Pumps are intrinsically safe and always ready to use anytime, anywhere and Gastec has more detector tubes certified by the Safety Equipment Institute (SEI) than any other manufacturer.
