Dimethyl Sulphide is commonly used for odorant for LPG, food flavour for coffee, chocolate and cocoa synthetic intermediate and synthetic oils etc. Kitagawa's Detector Tube 250S can detect dimethyl sulphide and has a measuring range of 0.21-100ppm with readings going from pink > pale yellow. 

Detector tubes and pumps are available from all Air-Met offices Australia wide. 

  • Measuring range: 0.21-100ppm
  • ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified 
  • Sampling time of 3 minutes/1 pump stroke
  • 3 years shelf life

Interference & Coexistence

Mercaptans and Butane will produce similar stain and will give higher readings. Under the condition of asbolute humidity at more than 3mg/L, hydrogen sulphide (H2S) does not affect the reading otherwise the H2S will produce a similar stain and gives higher reading. 

Propane does not affect the reading if the concentration is less than 0.8%.
