Radiation Measurement: 5 Tips to Choose the Right Device for the Job

03.01.2017

One look-back at the Chornobyl disaster will make you understand how the danger of radiation looms large on the earth right now. The scariest aspect is that radiation has no color or odor, and is hence undetectable. Imagine walking straight into a highly radioactive zone without sensing the impending doom. The personnel working in radioactive facilities or those responsible as first-responders in potential radiation risk situations need solid protection to stay safe from the perils of exposure.

Radiation Detectors For Homeland Security

15.12.2016

In spite of the technological advancements in shape of reliable, sturdy and top notch equipment for fighting and detecting radiation, the problem is nowhere near solved for homeland security personnel. Some of the machinery includes personal dosimetry, radiation survey meters, monitors for tracking the level of radioactive materials in the environment, and other specialized equipment. Read on to know about the radiation detectors used for homeland security.

How to use a Geiger counter

12.08.2016

The original detection principle was discovered in 1908, but it was not until the development of Geiger counter in 1928 by Hans Geiger and Walther Muller (about 100 years ago!) that the Geiger-Müller counter became a practical instrument. Since then it has been very popular due to its robust sensing element and relatively low cost to determine whether an object was radioactive and emitting radiation. It is also potentially capable to detect the amount of particle emission by the radioactive substance.

Detecting and Measuring Ionizing Radiation

01.08.2016

A human body has been equipped with multiple sense organs by virtue of evolution, but none of them is capable of detecting the presence of radiation in a natural or closed environment. However, many times the radiation can be “felt” and the signs can easily be mistaken for a paranormal presence.

Best Radiation Detector for Home use

18.07.2016

Radiation is a form of energy that comes from a source and travels through a medium, including vacuum. Sun rays are one of the most familiar forms of radiation. Light heat and sound, all are types of radiation.
But the radiations we need worry about are called ionizing radiation. It can produce charged particles (ions) in a matter. It can cause damage to matter, particularly living tissues by changing the structure and even the DNA. Obviously, at high levels of exposure, it is extremely dangerous to you and even your children who are not born yet!

5 Tips To Find Radiation Detection Equipment Manufacturer

06.04.2016

Radiation is not a fictional threat anymore which is only present in Marvel and DC universes. With repetitive leaks in nuclear power plants all across the world, it has become necessary that people take necessary steps to monitor their personal safety and surrounding radiation levels. This is in fact mandatory for people leaving near Fukushima or Chernobyl as nuclear radiation can persist in nature for decades and affect human health adversely. For anybody interested, the main trouble is not finding radiation detection equipment but rather locating a manufacturer whom we can trust. The key to finding the right radiation monitoring system manufacturer can become a little easier if we keep the following points in mind.

Easy Ways To Detect Radiation Exposure In Radiological Laboratories

01.04.2016

People who work in radiology labs and X-ray labs are especially at risk of high radiation exposure. However in most cases even experts cannot comprehend the effects of radiation on their health till it becomes symptomatic. Hence for people who work in such environments it is imperative to own personal radiation monitoring equipment which can detect carious levels of radiations and their types too.

What is radiation?

12.02.2015

Radiation is a form of emission that changes the state of nuclei and atoms, transforming them into electrically charged ions and products of nuclear reaction. Different forms of radiation have different penetration ability, therefore they unequally affect our organism.

Ways of radiation penetration into human body

12.02.2015

The main sources of radiation are not the potentially dangerous nuclear objects in cases of emergency but rather the natural sources. A person receives the main dose of radiation from natural radiation sources like outer space.

Effects of radiation

12.02.2015

Under the influence of ionizing radiation, atoms and molecules of living cells get ionized, which results in complicated physical and chemical processes that affect the nature of human's further vital activity.

Impact mitigation

12.02.2015

Residents of the areas where mining and mineral raw material processing works (coal mining, in particular) are located, and also those near thermal power engineering and metallurgy works receive large doses of radiation. The concentration of radon in the air of residential constructions and public buildings in these areas can ten times exceed valid hygienic norms.
