Measuring radioactive contamination in the air
QuantAir is a solution for measuring radioactive contamination in the air, it provides high-performance detection capabilities with accurate in-field quantification.
The lightweight system incorporates an optimised lead/copper shield enabling operation in both standard and raised backgrounds. This enables monitoring of potential activity build-up and acts as a live warning system, allowing remedial actions to be carried out at the time of release. This minimises potential intake and increases worker safety.
Initially set up to measure 131I levels, QuantAir can be tailored to any radionuclide. It works with most current air sampling devices, including L60, L100 and Hi-Q air samplers measuring carbon cartridge Maypack filters with the potential of other configurations.
QuantAir incorporates the Kromek GR1, the world’s smallest high-resolution room temperature gamma-ray spectrometer utilizing a cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) detector and offering world-leading specification in a compact form. With an energy resolution of less than 2.5%, the GR1 provides a clear separation of gamma energy peaks.
