Radiometer of gross alpha and beta activity UMF-2020


Purpose

A radiometer is a stationery laboratory device that consists of a measurement console USR-06 and detection device UDES-02. This is a counter of alpha- and beta-particles that fall on the detector from the sample located in the measuring cuvette.

A radiometer is aimed to measure:

  • a total quantity of pulses from alpha-emitting radionuclides in the count samples;
  • a total quantity of pulses from beta-emitting radionuclides in the count samples;
  • a total quantity of pulses from external alpha- and beta-emitting of sources type 1C0, 19.

The radiometers also can use for measurements which make according to appropriate methods to determine:

  • a total activity of beta-emitting nuclides in the count samples which obtained from the samples of food, soil, water, air filters and sorbents;
  • an activity of radionuclides in the samples which obtained after selective radiochemical extraction;
  • a total activity of alpha-emitting nuclides in «fat» and «thin» of the count samples of environment objects.

The radiometers apply as a a stationery laboratory measurement device in radiological control laboratories to measure of radionuclide activity in the studied samples if there are the appropriate measurement methods, certified under the established procedure.

Features

  • two independent channels that provide simultaneous measurement of alpha and beta radiation of the sample;
  • a measurement console provides an ability of continuous control for change of registered pulses in each of the channels according to the display and the operator can set the exposure time. Also, the console provides audible alarm of the completion of the measurement process;
  • an access to the measurement data via a display and communication lines by interface RS-485.
