Tube Cap Adapter for 20mm Gas Sensors
Tube cap adapters convert any industry standard 20mm gas sensor from diffusion to sampling sensors.
We offer 3 standard gas in-out tube caps that work with any 20mm gas sensor and 2 custom 20mm tube caps with ribbon cables for sensors on MX boards that have barometric pressure, temperature, and % relative humidity sensors on board. Verify the tube cap you need from the models below.
Tube cap adapters are not pre-installed. For accurate results you must mount the tube cap permanently. This video shows you how.

To get the most use out of our tube cap adapters you'll need tubing, moisture and particle filters, and a micro pump to pull the gas across the sensor. We offer everything you need below to create a full bench-top gas sampling setup.
Micro-Pump Kit Our most popular option - includes all the tools you need to utilize the tube-cap adapters as part of a sampling sensor system.
Nafion tubing is a highly selective, semi-permeable membrane to water vapor. If gases inside Nafion tubing are wetter than gases surrounding the tubing, drying will occur. If the surrounding gases are wetter, humidification will occur.
Micro gas sampling pumps provide a constant flow of air across the sensor with a tube cap - perfect for bench-top testing of sensors for closed-loop sampling applications or if you need a longer-lasting or higher volume pump.
It fits fine and works as advertised. The hose connections seem very thin could be a little more durable.
