How do gas detection tubes work?

Gas detection tubes require two basic components…

  • a tube (typically supplied in packs of 10), and
  • a sampling pump.

The pump is very simple to operate. With a new tube inserted into the pump, a sample of the atmosphere being tested is drawn into the tube under vacuum. A reaction inside the tube occurs, producing a coloured mark. The coloured mark is then compared against a scale, to determine the concentration of the target gas within the sampled atmosphere. The tube is then disposed of.
