Work with unsealed radioactive materials generates potential contamination of surfaces. Sensitive instruments providing early warnings of the presence of surface contamination help to prevent inadvertent transfer of radioactivity.
Surface contaminations are measured as activity per unit area [Bq/cm²] for specified radionuclides. These values are subject to regulatory limits. Surface contaminations are monitored using a variety of methods and instruments.
Contamination monitoring is one of our core competences and we are offering the following products:
The LB 124 SCINT is a contamination monitor based on innovative scintillation technology.
The detector of the LB 124 SCINT – 300 is based on innovative scintillation technology and has a big sensitive area of 345 cm².
The Contamination Monitor with Dose Rate Detector LB 124 SCINT-D is used
to measure radioactive alpha and beta-gamma contaminations on surfaces
well as gamma dose rate in ambient dose rate equivalent H*(10).
The LB 124 B is a versatile and flexible instrument based on well proven Xenon filled proportional counter technology.
The compact and versatile hand-foot monitor LB 147 is based on innovative scintillation detection technology.
The LB 148 is a compact versatile Personal Contamination Monitor with back of hand measurement.
The Floor Monitor LB 165/166 is a mobile measurement device with
large-area proportional counter tubes for the detection of surface
contamination caused by radioactive nuclides.
