Fig. 1 α, β surface contamination detector and typical interface
Ⅰ. Product Introduction
TK-211 is a large sensitive-area portable α, β surface contamination detector developed by Beijing Tai Kun Industrial Equipment Co.,Ltd, which uses 0.5mm thick plated ZnS (Ag) plastic scintillator as a detection unit, to effectively eliminate the interference of γ ray to β ray, without needing for air flow or inflation, reducing operating costs and maintenance costs. Pulse amplitude screening circuit is used, to automatically distinguish α, β particles and achieve α, β simultaneous measurement, minimizing the mutual impact. The imported G-M tube with the energy compensation is used to measure γ-ray, with a wide γ-ray dose rate range. Ergonomic design is used, with light weight, and a large screen display is used, easy to observe the reading.
Ⅱ. Main Features
l Continuous measurement mode and fixed time measurement mode are optional;
l The measurement time at the fixed measurement mode can be customized;
l The nuclide library is programmed freely;
l To measure α, β radioactivity and unit area activity of specific nuclide;
l With a special double-flash design used, the probability of γ-ray mixing into theβ-channel count is very low;
l To simultaneously measure α, β and γ rays;
l With lagre sensitive detection area;
l A reasonable optical reflection design makes that the detection efficiency of the detector is high, and data are accurate.
