Opis

VIRTUOSO – jest to kompaktowe urządzenie do kompleksowego badania radiologicznego artykułów spożywczych, gruntów, materiałów budowlanych itp. Jest używany dla oficjalnych pomiarów przy badaniach środowiska, radiologicznej kontroli produktów rolniczych, w budownictwie, przemysle mineralnym, drzewnym, a także w programach edukacyjnych.

Przyrząd przeznaczony jest do wykrywania radioizotopów cezu i radionuklidów naturalnych (potas, rad, tor) oraz oceny ich aktywności właściwej, obszernej i powierzchniowej.

Dzięki zastosowaniu zasadniczo nowych technologii, kontrola radioizotopów cezu i radionuklidów naturalnych stała się możliwa nie tylko w specjalnych laboratoriach, lecz również w warunkach domowych bez udziału radiologów zawodowych!

VIRTUOSO kompatybilny ze smartfonami i tabletami na podstawie Android, wymiana informacji następuje przez kanał Bluetooth. Przyrząd jest mobilny i praktyczny, nie wymaga specjalnego szkolenia użytkownika i pracuje w trybie dialogowym.

Tworząc nową koncepcję kontroli promieniowania, ułatwiliśmy proces mierzenia, przy czym nie kosztem utraty jakości pomiarów, a odwrotnie udoskonaliliśmy i rozszerzyliśmy możliwości pomiarowe przyrządu. W odróżnieniu od kłopotliwych i długotrwałych tradycyjnych metod kontroli skażenia radioaktywnego VIRTUOSO wykonuje pomiary poprzez zwykłe przyłożenie do obiektu albo nawet kiedy po prostu trzymasz przyrząd w rękach w pewnym miejscu, które chcesz zbadać na zanieczyszczenia. Tak więc produkt badania i jego pakowanie pozostają nieuszkodzone.

Za pomocą VIRTUOSO możesz łatwo zbadać czystość radiacyjną obiektów środowiska:

– gruntów

– materiałów budowlanych

– surowca mineralnego

– drewna

– mieszkania

– środków transportu

A także następnych artykułów spożywczych:

– wyżywienie dla dzieci

– woda, mleko

– mięso, ryba, jajka

– świeże warzywa, owoce

– zbożowe, kasze

– produkty suszone

– trawy suszone (herbata)

Virtuoso advantages compared to FoodTester-G

  • A new technology of scintillation detector has been applied using a semiconductor photomultiplier, which provided for:

    – High temperature stability

    – No microphone effect.

  • 2.5 times bigger volume and sensitivity of the detector, which provided for:

    – Significantly reduced measurement time

    – High repeatability of measurement results.

  • New functional capabilities:

    – Determination of activity of naturally occurring radioactive materials

    – Evaluation of the dose rate component of cesium radionuclides in the background radiation.

  • Improved processing algorithms of gamma amplitude spectra.

  • Built-in lithium-ion battery of standard size AA which, in contrast to the previously applied NiMH battery, allows recharging at any time.

Advantages of the new method of radiation monitoring compared to the traditional one

Traditional methods and devices of monitoring of environmental contamination by radiocesium require expensive equipment, troublesome and time-consuming operations, such as:

  • – Samples should be taken from the studied material of 0.5 l or 1,0 l, which is not always possible (destroys the integrity of the tested object);
  • – Sample material should be crushed to be placed in an inconveniently-shaped vessel of 0.5 or 1,0 l (inconvenient, messy and sometimes just impossible);
  • – Selected samples should be brought to the laboratory, where the spectrometer-radiometer operated by a specially trained operator is located;
  • – A vessel with sample should be placed in a lead shielding for measurement;
  • – Before placing the vessel with sample for measurement, it is necessary to measure the background radiation level without it (long measurement time required – from tens of minutes to several hours);
  • – Measurement of the very sample placed in a lead shielding is also rather time-consuming (from tens of minutes and longer);
  • – Despite all these troubles, you are not safe from blunders in case the sample have been taken from a wrong place (when contamination is uneven).

Creating a new concept of radiation control, we have simplified the process of measurement with no loss of measurement quality, but on the contrary, we have improved and expanded measurement capabilities of the device.

VIRTUOSO performs the same task on activity measurement  with the following advantages:

  • – Everything is measured without sampling, i.e. by simply putting the device to the tested object (material, product, soil, etc.) or by holding it over the studied surfaces;
  • – The studied object does not require advance preparation, no need to waste and destroy materials or packaging;
  • – The study is done immediately on-site, no need to take samples to laboratories;
  • – A professional radiologist and an inexperienced user can both be a measurement operator;
  • – No need in any bulky lead shielding in the process of measurement;
  • – No need to waste time measuring background at all, this task is solved in a fundamentally different way;
  • – Measurement time has been minimized, the approximate result becomes available in 5 seconds, and then measurement continues to obtain more accurate values;
  • – Not a small material sample taken from a random place is being examined, but quite a large area at once, which increases the monitoring quality and reduces the risk of overlooking local contamination.
