- Hard-to-reach and on-the-spot measurements can be carried out using the tubes, pump and accessories
- Obtain measurements within 10 seconds to 15 minutes (depending on the type of tube)
- Pre-entry checks, confined space entry, variations in concentration levels in the workplace and contamination of breathing zones are possible applications which may use tubes
|Standard Measuring Range:||1 to 10 ppm / 4 to 40 mg/m3|
|Number of Strokes n:||30|
|Time for Measurement:||In air - approx. 15 min|

|THT + KMnO4 --> yellow brown reaction product|
|Up to 10 ppm hydrogen sulfide is adsorbed in the pretube, causing a brown discoloration. It is impossible to measure tetrahydrothiophene in the presence of mercaptans. Up to 100 ppm
of olefines (e. g. ethene, propene) will cause the color of the indicating layer to become lighter, at higher concentrations the olefins are also indicated. Up to 200 ppm methanol does not interfere.
|Extension of the Measuring Range|
|1.6 to 16 ppm / 6.4 to 64 mg/m3
n = 20 multiply the reading by 1.6
