Dräger Short-term Tubes

Tried and tested a million times: Worldwide, the Dräger Short-term Tubes have proven to be a very cost-effective and reliable method for the measurement of gases. Decreasing occupational exposure values, special customer requirements and new legal regulations made it necessary to develop even more sensitive Dräger-Tubes.

For spot measurement more than 500 different gases can be detected. The measurement usually takes between 5 seconds and 15 minutes. Furthermore, the easy-to-use Dräger-Tubes have already been calibrated and form a complementary unit with the Dräger-Tube pumps.
