DraegerTubes require a specific number of hand pumps to get a reading. Traditionally this is done with a hand pump known as the AccuroPump, which is fine for many users. However, if significant daily tube readings are required, the AccuroPump can become difficult to work with, leading to inaccuracies and human error. Draeger has now released a new automatic pump, the X-act 5000, which reads the barcode on the side of the tube container, then loads the correct number of pumps into the system. A built-in flowmeter measures the correct quantity of airflow for each tube so that the accuracy of each measurement is increased.
