Canberra Argos 5AB Alpha-Beta Personnel Monitor

The CANBERRA Argos-AB family of Whole Body Surface Contamination Monitors provides the ultimate user-friendly operation, with thorough and reliable detection of external contamination on personnel working in nuclear environments.

From the Manufacturer:

The CANBERRA Argos-AB family of Whole Body Surface Contamination Monitors provides the ultimate user-friendly operation, with thorough and reliable detection of external contamination on personnel working in nuclear environments.

The Argos-5AB features their most advanced gas flow detectors optimized for the best possible alpha and beta response (along with minimizing the gamma response). The detectors have been arranged in a configuration that minimizes dead space and provides optimal contour geometry and coverage for the occupant.

All Argos monitors use a sophisticated “fast following” background trending and release-limit algorithm to provide the best possible performance in a stable or varying radiation field.

Excellent detector protection, modularity of components, and extensive diagnostics result in direct reductions in maintenance, repair, and operations costs.

Protean 9550 Low Level Alpha Beta Automated Sample Counter

The WPC 9550 is far more than a simple counting instrument. The comprehensive operating software embedded in the instrument adapts to almost every alpha/beta counting application. Eventually you will appreciate the simplicity of operation and completeness of this software. Initially you may be overwhelmed with the tools at your disposal.

The Protean Laboratory is right here in town, so we have every unit factory inspected prior to shipping.

Canberra FASTSCAN 2250 High-Throughput Whole Body Counter

This unit has been purchased by CHP from a working environment.  Originally purchased in 2004, this unit has been under service contract with Canberra ever since.  

See the latest QC Data in the photos.  It has been disassembled for shipment.  The computer and software did not transfer with the unit.  This allows the end user to get the latest version of the software and new computers for what is typically a $160K unit new.  Along with a stock photo, see the boxes containing the detectors with serial numbers and such.  Also included are the last set of QC’s run on the unit.

We estimate $47K for the latest software and complete work station.  The price quoted below assumes we get this up and running for you.  You may already have a licensed version of all or parts of that and can contract with the manufacturer for what you need.  We work on projects like this all the time, and can provide a turn key solution where we pay for all of this.  Just let us know what works for you.  If you can do the installation, you can save the cost of us having to contract out to have it done.  

Fastscan whole body counter is designed to quickly and accurately monitor people for internal contamination of radionuclides with energies between 300 keV to 1.8 MeV. The FASTSCAN system uses large area sodium iodide detectors and CANBERRA’s Apex-InVivo™ and Genie™ software to achieve low minimum detectable activities with count times as fast as one minute. It is intended for use in power plants and other facilities where the possible contamination spectra are well known and uncomplicated.

Ludlum Model 329-32 Laundry Contamination Monitor

Laundry Contamination Monitor

Ser:  107852

We have these in stock for immediate delivery!

Features
  • Highly Automated System
  • Simultaneous Monitoring of Upper and Lower Surfaces
  • Lockable Caster Wheels
  • 32 Alpha and 32 Beta-Gamma Channels
  • Audible Alarm is Accompanied by Visual Indicator LEDs for Indicating Approximate Location of Contamination
  • Real-Time Performance Status LEDs
  • Pass-Through Tunnel Adjusts Up to 17.8 cm (7 in.) Height

The Ludlum Model 329-32 Laundry Contamination Monitor is intended for automatic monitoring of both alpha and beta-gamma contamination on clothing or other light articles presumed to be free of radioactivity, or within release or reuse limits. A motor-driven steel-mesh conveyor belt carries articles between two gas proportional detector arrays. An audible alarm will sound when contamination exceeds the given alarm setpoint. A LED array spanning the belt shows the approximate position of the alarm on the conveyor, and provides the operator with the status of the machine. A dual LCD shows the counts and the current operating conditions, such as conveyor speed and gas flow. A security-code protected 20-key keypad also allows the changing of alarm set points, operating parameters, and other system information. The entire system is mobile, with lockable casters to prevent unwanted movement of the monitor.

Each lower and upper detector array has 16 individual gas proportional detectors, providing 32 alpha channels and 32 beta-gamma channels for a total of 64 counting channels. A spare detector array (supplied with each system) allows for easy replacement, reducing down time. The detector arrays are staggered providing an even response across the conveyor. The usable detection width is 86.4 cm (34 in.) with an overall belt width of 91.4 cm (36 in.).

All three detectors (upper, lower, and spare) slide out of the conveyor bed for cleaning and repair. The electronics is microprocessor-based, and housed in two slide-out drawers. There are two alarm levels, each fully adjustable. The first alarm level (ALERT) can pause the conveyor, stop the conveyor, allow the conveyor to continue, or re-scan. Re-scan reverses the belt to clear the probe that caused the alert, and then passes the article through the monitor again. A master yellow alert lamp will light for the duration of any ALERT. The second alarm level (ALARM) can either stop the conveyor and light the red master lamp and audio, re-scan once, twice, always, or it may continue conveyor operation and latch all alarms. Fail detection features include high-voltage failure, low count, and high background. The high voltage, conveyor belt speed, and output gas flows are monitored by the central processor. Pressing the BACKGROUND UPDATE button manually enters the background mode. Automatic background updates allow updating after the conveyor has become free of articles.

We have a parts inventory and can sell a complete unit for parts, or we can sell select parts as needed.  Please call for parts.

All Portal monitors are sold as fully functional units unless specifically requested otherwise.  This means we get them up and running and perform a full calibration on the unit prior to shipping it to you.  We can crate them for an additional fee, or we can ship them to you shrink wrapped and banded to a pallet at no additional charge.

 

Eberline PCM-1B Portal Monitor

The Eberline PCM1B is a Beta or alpha plus beta portal monitor.  We have both versions available.  We can also install the Eberline Gas Management system for an additional fee.  There is an extra charge for the Alpha Option on these which is $1000 extra.  The gas Manager is an extra $1000 too and includes the entire gas management system installation.  We sell the gas managers for $750 each if you just need the electronics.

Some units are larger than others to allow for internal storage of the P-10 cylinders.  IF you want the larger or smaller version, let us know.  There is no extra charge for either of them.

We also have a very large parts inventory and can sell a complete unit for parts, or we can sell select parts as needed.  Please call for parts.
