Nextteq LLC announced the availability of the new Gastec Polytec-V Qualitative Analysis Tube. This single tube lets you sample air or gas for the presence of fifteen (15) separate substances (up to eight (8) at one time) with one rapid 30-second test. Substances that can be detected include Acetylene, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, Chlorine, Ethylene, Hydrogen, Hydrogen Chloride, Hydrogen Cyanide, Hydrogen Phosphide, Hydrogen Sulphide, Methyl Mercaptan, Nitrogen Dioxide, Phosgene, Propylene, and Sulphur Dioxide. This tube can be particularly useful to firefighters and emergency response teams because it allows separate detection of Phosgene and Hydrogen Cyanide, which may be present after the combustion of chlorinated products and plastics.
Gastec’s Polytec Tubes are uniquely designed detector tubes that allow for the qualitative detection of multiple unknown substances in an air sample. Save money by using Gastec Polytec Tubes instead of other commercially available manifold-based detector tube systems that require use of multiple tubes – especially when some of the manifold tubes might not even be critical to your needs but still need to be used in the system.
Gastec offers five (5) types of Polytec Tubes, and each tube can be used with a Gastec Model GV-100S or GV-110S Gas Sampling Pump.
