PAM Series of Portable Activity Meters

The PAM series of portable meters are compact,lightweight, hand-held instruments used to measure surface contamination from alpha, beta, and gamma activity. Low maintenance scintillation detectors are used to measure the contamination. Dual phosphor detectors with electronics are available for discrimination of alpha from beta activity.

FCM-02 Contamination Monitor

The FCM-02 Contamination Monitor is used to measure the surface contamination of workers,their clothing, and equipment. Scintillation detectors are used to measure the alpha, beta, and gamma surface activity. The FP series of smart frisking probes are used to detect the surface contamination. The FP series probe has a standard active area of 15.5 in2 (100 cm2) and can be provided with dual phosphors for discrimination of alpha from beta activity.

MK-30 Sample Anaysis Monitoring Chamber

The MK-30 Sample Analysis Monitoring Chamber is used with a PC computer to provide measurements of swipe (smear) samples, evaporation
samples, and air filters. The MK-30 has a shielded chamber to reduce background and increase measurement sensitivity. Various detectors can be used, for specific applications such as beta,gamma, and alpha/beta measurements.

Hand/Foot Contamination Monitors

VF’s line of Hand/Foot Contamination Monitors is used to measure the alpha, beta, and gamma contamination on hands and feet. Different types and thicknesses of smart scintillation detectors are used to determine the type of radiation measured and the sensitivity of the
detectors. Using dual phosphors, the discrimination of alpha from beta activity is available. A user friendly touchscreen display and voice prompts are used to step the Operator through the measurement process. The display, status lights, and voice prompts provide visual and audible results of the measurements. The touchscreen display is used for maintenance functions. The maintenance functions are either password or lock protected.

SKDP Series of Small Item Contamination Monitor

VF’s SKDP series of small item contamination monitors can measure gamma contaminations on small objects that can fit in the standard 12.6-in by 9-in by 9-in (32.0-cm. by 22.9-cm. by 22.9-cm) measurement chamber. Optional measurement chamber sizes are available. Visual
and audible alarms provide an indication of contamination above a preset limit and the level of contamination is displayed as a percent of the preset alarm limit. The SKDP is offered in various configurations depending on the measurement requirements, including a “pass-through” model. Additional detectors can be provided to improve the minimum detectable activity (MDA).

FloorScan Series of Floor Contamination Monitors

The FloorScan series of monitors are used to measure the alpha, beta, and gamma contamination on floors. Low maintenance smart
scintillation detectors are used to measure the contamination. Dual phosphor detectors with electronics are available for discrimination of alpha from beta activity. Versions with one or two 81.4-in2 (525 cm2) active area detectors are available.
