RAE Gas Detection Tubes

Colorimetric Gas Detection and Specialty Tubes

RAE Systems’ Colorimetric Gas Detection Tubes offer quick, on-the-spot measurements of many gases and vapors at a low cost. All tubes are easy to read, feature sharp color change, and are accurate with no need of calibration.

Colorimetric gas detection tubes are an economical solution to gas detection. RAE Systems offers an extensive range of colorimetric gas detection tubes ideal for fast, on the spot, measurement of numerous vapors and gases. Each box contains 10 tubes for 10 seperate tests. Hand pumps can be ordered by themselves, or in a kit with spare parts and a carrying case. RAE Systems colorimetric gas detection tubes require no calibration, are highly accurate, have distinctive color changes, and are very easy to read.

Using RAE Systems' colorimetric gas detection tubes is simple:

First, both ends of the tube are broken using the tip breaker built into the hand pump. The tube is then inserted into the rubber inlet on the pump with the arrow on the tube pointing towards the pump. To begin the sample, the red dots on the pump body and plunger are aligned and the plunger is quickly pulled back until it latches at either 1/2 or full stroke, depending upon desired sample volume. When the end of flow indicator on the plunger returns to full brightness the sample is complete or additional strokes can be performed depending upon the required sample volume. Measurements are indicated directly from the scale printed on the tube. Adjustment factors for sample volume, temperature, and humidity can be applied to this measurement using the values indicated in the datasheets that come with the tubes.

Colorimetric Gas Detection Tubes are well suited for any application where an economical solution to on the spot gas measurements is required and there is no need for continuous sampling.

RAE Smoke Generation TubesSmoke Generation Tubes

Smoke generation tubes are for use in respirator fit testing and meet the requirements for OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 (appendix A) and OSHA 1910.139. They are operated by breaking both tips with a tip breaker and inserting the tube into a aspirator. Squeezing the aspirator will produce smoke via a chemical reaction. RAE Systems' smoke generation tubes can be reused until spent by closing off the ends of the tubes with the included rubber caps between uses.

RAE Gas Detection Tubes Ordering Instructions

Colorimetric Gas Detection Tubes

Use of colorimetric tubes requires a hand pump. They can be ordered below as a kit containing replacement parts and a case, or as just the pump. The tubes themselves are available for various gases and ranges. Tubes come in boxes for either 10 or 5 measurements.

For an even more economical solution, the hand pump can be rented and just the tubes purchased.
