PORTABLE RADON-IN-WATER ALARM
Works for discrete samples or for continuous flow.
Detection of Rising Radon Levels in aquifer on drinking water is important to the health and safety of consumers and to the successful compliance to current EPA standards by Utilities and Water Districts.
Water flows continuously * through the lower section of the FLO-9 sample head. Some of the suspended Radon gas escapes from the water due to its vapor pressure. If desired, the amount of, Radon escaping can be increased by heating, agitating, bubbling, etc.
The resultant radon gas is detected by the PAS-8 alpha scintillation in the upper chamber. The count rate from the PAS-8 Detector is displayed on the LAM-10 alarming AC-DC Ratemeter or other TA counter. User can set alarm level as desired.
Model Radon-7 System Includes
FLO-9 Sample Head
PAS-8 Alpha Scintillator
LAM-10 Alarming Ratemeter
The RADON-7 Radon Alpha Scintillation
system combines a modified PAS-8 Alpha Scintillation Probe plus FLO-9 vapor-flow-thru vessel for sample containment. In this detection
system, the protective ring and grill normally included in the PAS-8
when same is used as a free probe, is deleted to enhance sensitivity
to alpha radiation.
The sensitivity of the PAS-8/FLO-9 to
5 MeV Alphas is typically 80-85% of 2 pi. It is completely insensitive
to Betas and Gammas. Background is typically less than one count per
minute. Sample cavity is 2'' diameter x 1/2'' deep.

The PAS-8/FLO-9 is
compatible with Technical Associates

other high-quality scaler or ratemeter furnishing well-regulated high
voltage +700 to 1200 V and accepting 100 mV negative going pulses
from a 200 meg source. Termination is BNC (Optional
