APPLICATION: Model STGABS42
is especially well suited to counting Alpha & Beta emissions
from air sampler filters.
The STGABS42 Alpha Beta Scintillation System combines Alpha and Beta Dual Scintillation Detector plus TM2 drawer system for sample containment. In this detection system, the protective window and grill are deleted to enhance sensitivity to Alpha and low energy Beta radiation. Stainless steel drawer and base plate for stability and easy cleaning. The sensitivity of the STGABS42 to 5MeV Alphas is typically 8085% of 2 Pi. Alpha Background can be less than one count per minute. Sample cavity optional 0.4" deep. Allows 2'' sample diameter x 3/16'' thick sample size. Windowless operation, with lighttight housing and automatic HV. Cutoff when drawer is opened. SPECIFICATIONS:
