The portable CARONTE 9400 gamma monitor is designed to easily measure the radioactivity level of small objects such as boxes, tools or other similar equipments. The mechanical cycle and the measurement procedure are entirely controlled by the remote software, in automatic or manual mode.
A background acquisition is needed before CARONTE 9400 can start the measurement procedure; the management software will automatically subtract the background value from the measurements.
If the alarm thresholds are exceeded, a proper visual and acoustic indication will be activated.
The automatic cycle consists in the following three stages:
- First the length is determined by means of the first photocell placed before the detectors.
- The radioactivity level is determined: the software performs the data acquisition for a preset time.
- Finally, after the measurement, the materials are carried at the end of the conveyor belt, which automatically stops.
The 4 detectors are mounted in a tunnel-shape configuration: two at the sides of the passageway, one under the conveyor and one at the top of the measurement area. The upper detector can be vertically moved to adapt to materials dimensions, improving the overall measurement sensitivity.
CARONTE 9400 is mounted on 4 blocking wheels, so it can be easily positioned and moved according to the customer needs.
