Radioactivity meters and protection solutions

RADIOACTIVITY

Meters and protection solutions.

Radioactivity meters for the rapid detection of objects, food and various products contaminated by alpha, beta, gamma and X-ray radiation: Geiger counters, radiometers and dosimeters, for personal and professional use.

The dose of background ambient gamma radiation, existing in nature, has general values between 0.03 – 0.3 µSv / h (micro Sievert / hour). This “base” radiation is conditioned by the diverse content of the soil in natural radioactive components such as uranium, potassium, etc.

80% of the dose received by people in the world (on average) comes from: cosmic ray radiation - which comes from outside the atmosphere - and those emitted by these natural materials. The rest is caused almost entirely by medical procedures that use radiation (X-ray diagnoses, CT, ... etc).

The average dose sustained by a human being is 2.4 mSv /year (milli Sievert/year). Of all the sources of natural ionizing radiation (including cosmic rays), that from 222Rn is equivalent to approximately half the dose that people receive.

Ionizing radiations are those radiations with sufficient energy to ionize matter, extracting electrons from their states bound to the atom. [Source: Wikipedia]
