The Kitagawa Gas Detector Tube System is now available at Shawcity Limited (UK)! The system is used by many industries to detect gases and vapours, simply and reliably, without the need for calibration, effort or a power supply. It’s as easy to use as 1-2-3!

The system is Lightweight, compact and easy to carry; simple to operate for all personnel; provides accurate reading in a few minutes; can be used in flammable atmospheres; Needs no calibration or power supply.

The System consists of a pump and a range of over 300 glass detector tubes, from Ammonia to Xylene. Also available are single inorganic and single organic detector tubes. You can use the simple search function on the Shawcity website to search for the needed chemical.

The tubes are filled with an absorbent material and chemical reagent which, when in the presence of the target gas, produces a colour stain along the tube. A calibration scale is printed on the tube to enable you to easily match the length of the colour stain to the concentration of the gas present.

The tubes themselves are shatter proof and can be used in a multitude of applications such as; industrial Hygiene, Fire/Explosion prevention, Process Control, Air Pollution Control and in Industrial Waste Water applications.

The Kitagawa system is multi-functional and can be used for measuring dissolved substances in solutions, compressed breathing air testing and even blood screening in criminal investigations.

Extra apparatus for the AP-20 pump offers remote testing in confined spaces and as no electricity is required, there is no added risk of explosion.
