GASTEC II – portable non-heated FID analyser

GPS functionality for immediate response to leaks

Gas-Tec is a portable gas detector designed for the rapid identification and inspection of leaks. GPS, data logging, and event-logging allow inspection teams to monitor operational changes and accurately record areas of conern. Gas-Tec comes with a shoulder strap and features a wide range of probes and accessories for all kinds of applications.

GAS-TEC - Compounds detected
The portable GASTEC FID analyser analyses VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

GASTEC II Features


Improved data-entry by assigning latitude, longitude, and elevation. Users can also read the position in real-time, providing emergency service teams with the exact location of any leaks for an immediate response.

Chronological recording of data and events

Gas-Tec allows users to download all their experimental data information using the USB interface with its drag-and-drop functionality.

Ease of use

LCD display and programmable keys provide complete sequential instructions, in-use options, service and calibration settings and alarms.

Tried and Tested

Based on the popular original Gas-Tec analyser’s detection method, this new generation of detectors has already proven its worth, and is built to cope with the demands of everyday use.

Robust and Reliable

Waterproof in accordance with IP54 for daily use in all weather conditions.

Advanced electronic controls

With extended battery life and gas refill. The transponder pressure and flow regulators manage the H2 and sample flow rates.


Gas-Tec is sold with a robust, wheeled ABS case with foam protection.
