Nextteq introduces Gastec tube No. 6LP

Published by
World Pipelines,

Nextteq offers Gastec’s direct-read, water vapour detection tube, Gastec tube No. 6LP, to help evaluate quality assurance for humidity control in natural gas pipelines. The 6LP tube provides accurate detection of water vapour concentrations with a specific measuring range of 3-100 lb/million ft3. This tube is designed to measure the maximum acceptable water vapour concentration of 7 lb/million ft3.

The tube’s construction results in longer stain marks and greater distance between calibration marks, in order to improve accuracy. With a measuring range of 3-100 lb/million ft3, Gastec’s 6LP detector tube provides the broadest range of a direct-read water vapour detector tube on the market. Additionally, it requires only 1 pump stroke and takes only 1.5 min. for the standard measuring range of 3-40 lb/million ft3.

The Methanol Correction Slide Card, for use with Gastec Gas Detector Tubes 6LP (water vapour) and 111L (methanol), expedites the analysis and reduces the risk of miscalculations.

In addition to water vapour and methanol, Gastec offers pre-calibrated, direct-read detector tubes for over 600 applications including hydrocarbons and hydrogen sulfide.
