Kromek detectors on the case
To confirm the identity of the identified radionuclide, SOS were loaned a D5 RIID and D3M. These detectors produce rapid, accurate gamma and neutron radiation alerts in-field.
The D3M constantly monitors the environment for radioactive sources, and with an ultra-low false alarm rate, workers are only interrupted in the event of a real incident. This personal radiation detector (PRD) also stores spectral data locally for later extraction and inspection, facilitating plans for risk mitigation.
The D5 RIID delivers a wider variety of spectral data at the ‘scene of the crime’, its enhanced sensitivity at a medium resolution identifying low activity, mixed and shielded sources, and their precise location with localisation mode.
