RadBall

Category: Characterization > Sampling & Analysis Equipments > Analysis Equipment
Reference # : Model No :

RadBall is a deployable radiation mapping device, which can locate, quantify and characterize radiation hazards from a single position. The tennis-ball-sized device has the potential to replace conventional detection devices which are often much bigger, unwieldy and require manual handling. A single RadBall can be positioned in a radioactive environment and left alone to collect data instead of personnel spending valuable time carrying out manual scanning. The device consists of a colander-like outer sheath that houses a radiation-sensitive polymer sphere. It requires no power cable and can be positioned in tight or hard-to-reach places. The outer sheath works to line up radiation sources and those areas of the polymer sphere that are exposed react, becoming opaque. The inner sphere is scanned and the data digitised, allowing sources of radiation to be traced along with type and degree in a given area.
