Draeger Gas Detector Tube Technical Information


There are sure standards and rules to be followed to guarantee legitimate utilization and right outcomes when utilizing Draeger Gas Detector Tubes, incorporating the cylinders found in the Simultaneous Test Sets furnished with the Draeger CDS Kit.

Draeger Gas Detector Tube Storage

To ensure the exactness of the cylinder sign all through the timeframe of realistic usability, Draeger-Tubes ought to be put away in the first bundle at room temperature (around 20 C). A note on the bundle demonstrates a greatest stockpiling temperature of 25 C (for example 77 F). Keep away from unnecessarily low (under 35 F) or higher (more noteworthy than 77 F) temperatures during capacity and don’t expose the cylinders to light for delayed periods.

Draeger Gas Detector Tube Use in Cold Temperatures

Since a portion of the reagents can freeze under 0 C it is practically difficult to give remedy factors for the utilization of locator tubes in chilly temperature. In any case, there is a straightforward response to the issue, in particular to guarantee that the temperature in the cylinder stays inside the working reach (see working guidelines) during the estimation. The simplest method to do this is to keep the cylinder warm by holding it intently in the hand. This procedure is valuable down to – 20 C (for example – 4 F). Sports gloves with a cut in the palm function admirably at the lower temperatures.

Draeger Gas Detector Tube Disposal

Try not to discard utilized or terminated Draeger-Tubes in homegrown waste. Draeger-Tubes should be discarded appropriately, since the reagent arrangement of the cylinder contains synthetic compounds, despite the fact that the synthetics are available in incredibly modest quantities.

The capacity or removal of synthetic substances should be directed by nearby, state and government guidelines. Draeger Safety can furnish the cylinder client a letter with general remarks on removal necessities just as a connection posting the pre-use substance of every one of 15 characterized gatherings of cylinders (in light of compound reactants).

The U.S. Ecological Protection Agency keeps a complementary telephone utility called the RCRA Hotline, which gives direction on administrative issues. The number for the RCRA Hotline is 800-424-9346.

Draeger Supplemental Short Term Detector Tubes

The cylinders in the Simultaneous Test Sets of the CDS Kit are described as “semi-quantitative”, giving good guesses on the convergences of 8 compound specialists. Draeger has almost 200 transient cylinder alternatives fit for recognizing more than 1,000 distinct synthetic substances.

There is space in the CDS Kit for 6 extra boxes of individual indicator tubes, which are likewise utilized with the accuro testing siphon gave. Choice of these cylinders is an individual decision and is impacted by what synthetic substances may be relied upon to be available in a specific region. For instance, if there is a close by mechanical office that has certain synthetic compounds being used for their cycles, tubes for those particular synthetic substances would be a reasonable decision.

There are sure regular synthetic or substance families for which individual cylinders frequently might be specifically added to the CDS Kit. An outline of a portion of these, and important cylinders to react, is introduced here. More definite data is consistently accessible from Draeger Safety or our Authorized Distributors.


Alkali is the third biggest volume compound delivered in the United States and is utilized in a huge assortment of utilizations. Draeger fabricates 5 diverse transient alkali tubes ready to identify from 0.25 to 100,000 ppm. The cylinder with the most utility inside the TLV and IDLH ranges is the Ammonia 5/a (P/N CH20501), which can quantify between 5-700 ppm. The cylinder can likewise distinguish other fundamental gases like natural amines.


Chlorine is the ninth most elevated volume substance delivered in the United States, still most regularly utilized in water cleansing. Draeger makes 3 distinctive transient cylinders ready to distinguish from 0.02 to 500 ppm. The suggested cylinder would be the Chlorine 0.2/a (P/N CH24301) fit for estimating between 0.02-30 ppm. This cylinder is additionally fit for assessing levels of chlorine dioxide if present. Furthermore, it has affectability to bromine and nitrogen dioxide.


Carbon Monoxide

May be available in harmful fixations at the site of a fire. Draeger gives 5 diverse transient cylinders for the identification of CO, including the Carbon Monoxide 10/b (P/N CH20601). This cylinder is equipped for estimating from 10 to 3000 ppm CO. As the cylinder has affectability to various hydrocarbons a carbon pre-cylinder can be given to eliminate meddling substances.

Hydrogen Sulfide

Draeger gives 10 distinct cylinders to the estimation of hydrogen sulfide, which is profoundly combustible and poisonous by inward breath. TLV is 10 ppm in air. The Hydrogen Sulfide 5/b tube (P/N CH29801) has a discovery scope of 5-600 ppm.

Oil Hydrocarbons

The Draeger Petroleum Hydrocarbons 10/a cylinder (P/N 8101691) has explicit sensitivities to hexane, heptane, octane and different hydrocarbons. The standard alignment is for n-octane at 10 to 300 ppm. This cylinder is consequently fit for general estimation of various normal substances like gas, lamp oil/flight fuel, diesel fuel and different solvents/spirits.

Chlorinated Hydrocarbons

Distinctive chlorinated hydrocarbons actually have various applications including cleaning (perchloroethylene), solvents (trichloroethane), degreasing (trichloroethylene) and glue creation (vinyl chloride). Draeger produces tubes for this load of explicit mixtures. The two most regularly utilized in HazMat Response have been the Perchloroethylene 2/a (P/N 8101501), scope of 2-300 ppm, and the Trichloroethylene 10/a (P/N CH24401), which can gauge 50-2000 ppm of TCE.

BTEX Compounds

The sweet-smelling intensifies benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene and xylene have a huge presence in the compound/petrochemical markets in a wide assortment of employments. The cylinder with the most utility in measuring all BTEX compounds aside from benzene is the Toluene 5/b tube (P/N 8101661). Of the 5 distinct cylinders offered for benzene estimation (aggregate scope of 0.5 to 420 ppm), the most benzene explicit is the Benzene 0.5/c (P/N 8101841), which can gauge from 0.5 to 200 ppm.

Hydrochloric Acid

Hydrochloric corrosive is the 25th most noteworthy volume synthetic created in the United States and regularly is utilized in food handling, steel pickling, metal cleaning and different acidizing applications. Estimation of the vaporous hydrogen chloride portion is finished with both of two hydrochloric corrosive cylinders. The lower range Hydrochloric Acid 1/a (P/N CH29501) covers the scope of 0.1 to 100 ppm.

Other compound explicit cylinders that are accessible to supplement the semi-quantitative cylinders found in the Civil Defense Simultest Kit and help pinpoint levels of potential harmful substances incorporate the accompanying:

Cylinder PART # RANGE

Nitrous Fumes 2/a (NO + NO2) CH31001 2-150 ppm
