Portable radiation detector used by first responders

The Saint-Gobain Advantage for portable detection

  • Fast, accurate isotope identification - LaBr3, Enhanced LaBr, CLLB
  • Lightweight design to limit user fatigue – SiPM based detectors, LaBr3, Enhanced LaBr, CLLB
  • Neutron detection performance without He3 - NaIL, CLLB
  • Ruggedized construction
  • Cost-effective solutions – NaI(Tl), NaIL, SiPM based detectors
  • ANSI compliant
  • IP67 rated to survive tough missions - SiPM based detectors

    Solutions

    • NaIL

      • Helium-3 free alternative
      • Most cost-effective solution for dual detection
      • Reduced user fatigue with a lighter weight RIID due to the elimination of second neutron detector
    • CLLB    

      • Helium-3 free alternative
      • Improved detection capability and faster scans due to improved isotope identification from its superior energy resolution
      • Reduced user fatigue with a lighter weight RIID due to the elimination of second neutron detector
    • LaBr3 or Enhanced LaBr3

      • Improved detection capability and faster scans due to improved isotope identification from its superior energy resolution
      • Reduced user fatigue with a lighter weight RIID due to high density and high stopping power
    • SiPM - Based Detectors

      • Low power operation enables a longer-lasting RIID to eliminate multiple battery changes.
      • Reduced user fatigue with a more compact design over a PMT detector
      • Improved detector capability through magnetic field insensitivity
