DOE-HDBK-1122-99 Module 2.19, Fundamental Academic Training Instructor's Guide Phase I; Module 2.19, Study Guide - Counting Room Equipment

Functional areas: Radiological Control, Technician Training, Study Guide, Counting Room Equipment
An overview of counters, scalers and associated equipment will describe the basic functions of counting equipment used to detect radiation activity. The RCT uses information from these counting instruments to identify and assess the hazards presented by contamination and airborne radioactivity and establish protective requirements for work performed in radiological areas. Stand-alone counters or scalers measure gross activity while spectroscopy systems perform spectrum analysis to identify and quantify activity from specific nuclides. The common uses of counting room equipment in various facilities will be discussed.
