Contamination Probe

Ionizing Radiation and Radioactivity

Highly Sensitive Contamination Probe

 

This highly sensitive contamination probe has been developed to quickly and reliably locate the slightest traces of radioactive contamination. The active measurement area corresponds to the legal requirements of the Austrian Radiation Protection Regulations Appendix 11 for contamination measurements. In accordance, measurements must be carried out in an integrated way over an area of 100 cm2. Surface contamination is given in becquerel per cm2.

After measurement has taken place, the activity can be determined using a calibration table. With this probe it is possible to check rapidly if people, cars and trucks, including freight or luggage, are free of contamination or not. It can be directly connected to the SSM-1 radiation measuring instrument using the standard cable. An acoustic display can be switched on and off directly at the probe.
