T-piece and Tubing

  • Sale
  • Regular price $25.00

Compatible Detectors: All

  • ⚛️  Description: The T-piece is used for pump based detectors where one needs to detect a positive (pressure) stream of gas coming from a gas source (i.e. gas bottle) and pressure seen by the detector micro-pump should remain as constant as possible.
  • 📶  How does it work? The setup works in two basic ways:

    1. Gas source air flow exceeds the flow required to be supplied by the micro-pump. In this case, the excess air will be exhausted out from the particle filter. 2. Gas source air flow does not meet the micro-pump volume demand. In this case, the micro-pump needs "make up air volume" which will be supplied from the ambient, through the particle filter and into the micro-pump. Note, in such a case, the incoming air flow will dilute the gas source concentration.

    👫  Instructions: Please see the image. Connect one end to your gas supply, the other to your detector/analyzer or pump intake for gas analysis. Ensure the other end (filter side), sees one atmosphere to enable exhaust or make up air as described. 

  • 🔣  Specifications: Comes with 3 x 4 inch pieces of silicone tubing with inner diameter of 0.13 inches and the T-piece barb has a outer diameter of 0.1 inches. The particle filter is the FD-FILTER-PARTICLE part.
