These systems consist of a Drager Tube and a Draeger gas detector pump which can be either manual with the Draeger Accuro or automatic with the Draeger X-Act 5000. Each Draeger Tube contains a very sensitive reagent system that produces accurate readings when the technical characteristic of the gas detector pump precisely match the reaction kinetics of the reagent system in the tube. Therefore the Draeger Accuro pump, delivering the correct volume, must also pull the sample through the selected Draeger Tube at the proper rate.
The pump and tube form a sampling unit. Do not interchange the pumps and tubes of various manufacturers, this can lead to erroneous results. For more information on how to use Draeger Tube Measurement Systems, download the manual.
