Scintillation Cell Continuous Sampling Radon Measurements

2017-09-08T09:58:11-04:00September 8th, 2017|Measurements|

Overview Scintillation cells are an accepted and proven technology for detecting radon in a gas (typically air) sample. Scintillation cells are used in conjunction with a monitor that includes a photon detector/amplifier and a pulse counter. The photon detector could be a photomultiplier tube (PMT), solid state detector, etc. When radon decays, it gives off an [...]

Radon Chamber – Radon Sources | Pylon Electronics-Radon

2017-08-01T10:50:34-04:00July 20th, 2017|Measurements|

When there is a requirement to provide different chamber radon concentration levels, it can be expensive to purchase and maintain a number of different sources in order to provide a range of radon concentration levels inside a radon chamber. Fortunately, there is a simple, low-cost technique that can be used to provide a wide range of [...]

Radon Gas In Groundwater | Pylon Electronics-Radon

2017-08-01T10:51:35-04:00April 7th, 2017|Measurements|

Health risks from radon gas and the need for testing have been in the media lately. National news agencies like the CBC recently aired stories warning us about radon gas because all Canadians are at risk. When we normally hear about radon gas exposure, it’s about people being exposed to in their homes from places like [...]

Scintillation Cell Contamination | Pylon Electronics-Radon

2017-08-01T10:52:23-04:00August 30th, 2016|Measurements|

Due to the nature of radon measurement, Lucas type scintillation cells are exposed to radioactive radon and radon daughters. This will contaminate the cells resulting in the possibility of compromising future measurements. The measurement life of a cell can be extended by ensuring that the cell is flushed to remove the sample in a timely manner [...]

Radon In Materials | Pylon Electronics-Radon

2017-08-01T10:53:36-04:00August 29th, 2016|Measurements|

ENVIRONMENTAL RADON - RADON IN MATERIALS Radon is a colourless, odourless, radioactive gas formed from the decay of radium. It is a member of the uranium 238 decay series. Building materials such as concrete, soil, some ceramics, rock, and many everyday materials found in the indoor or outdoor environment may contain radium and uranium and act [...]
