Due to a recent vendor manufacturing process change, Industrial Scientific is immediately discontinuing the sample tubing used for Ventis MX4, M40 and MX6 portable multi-gas monitors with pumps as well as the iTX monitor and pump due to possible absorption of certain gases.
The discontinued sample tubing includes:
- P/N 17102005 – 1/8 inch inside diameter black urethane tubing
- P/N 17065970 – 1/8 inch inside diameter clear urethane tubing
- P/N 17093659 – 3/16 inch inside diameter clear urethane tubing
The Ventis MX4, M40 and MX6 multi-gas monitors with pump, all use 1/8 inch inside diameter sample tubing while the iSP sampling pump used with the iTX monitor uses a 3/16 inch inside diameter sample tubing.
Industrial Scientific will now offer two new universal sample tubing kits with each kit containing fittings for use with both the 1/8 inch and 3/16 inch pump inlets, and a dust filter/water stop (P/N 17027152). Industrial Scientific will continue to supply the M40 with pump with 10 feet of black urethane tubing.
Universal Urethane Sample Tubing Kit
The universal urethane sample tubing kit is for use with all gases except Cl2, ClO2, HCl and VOCs measured using the MX6 PID sensor. This tubing kit will be offered in specific lengths of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100 feet.
Universal Teflon Lined Sample Tubing Kit
The universal Teflon lined sample tubing kit is primarily for use with specific exotic gases that are susceptible to absorption by certain types of tubing, such as Cl2, ClO2, HCl, and VOCs. Though primarily designed for use with these exotic gases, the kit may be used to take samples of any gas. The kits will be offered in specific lengths of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 feet.
Since 3/16 inch inside diameter tubing is used for calibration purposes, Industrial Scientific will offer P/N 18109208 consisting of 10 feet of 3/16 inch inside diameter clear urethane tubing that may be used for connections from regulators to cal cups or docking/cal stations for any gas including Cl2, ClO2, HCl, and VOCs.
