Gas and Process Sample Transport Systems for Analyzer Applications

Insulation materials must be chosen for the application. Considerations include chloride content, wicking, temperature range and mechanical stability.

The insulations used in TRACEPAK tubing bundles virtually eliminate the wicking problem. They also have low water soluble chloride content, averaging below 30ppm.
