GAMMA PRODUCTS G542-8 M-QUAD
Substantial gas-flow proportional counter
Brand: GAMMA PRODUCTS G542-8 M-QUAD
Type: Equipment

A proportional counter is an ionising particle detector. Its operation is based on the ionisation produced in particles by an intense electric field passing through the gaseous detection volume. Both radiation types can be simultaneously measured taking into account that, by passing through a material medium, an alpha particle produces a higher specific ionisation than a beta particle of equal energy.

Description

This gas-flow detector allows to measure low-alpha / low-beta-activity samples, that is, is used to determine the rate of total alpha and beta emissions.

  1. Environment
  2. Radiological surveillance
Practical implementation
  • Analysis of total alpha and beta activity in aerosol samples.
  • Determination of radioactive parameters in drinking and inland waters.
  • Assessment of radioactive contamination in sewage water.
Quality certifications

Accreditation 17025:2017 ENAC 959/LE1381 for total alpha, beta and other beta activity in drinking and inland waters.

Terms of use

Sample determination equipment. A user-submitted request via SCSIE is required for the LARAM staff to use it.
