This study investigates interchangeability of the length of stain gas tubes and sampling pumps of different manufacturers and the obtaining of acceptable results. Carbon-monoxide (630080) was used as the contaminant and various relationships such as pressure-time, flow rate-time, and actual interchange data were evaluated. Interchanging gas detector tubes and sampling pumps of different manufacturers is not recommended.
