Aer 5000 :: Desktop Continuous Air Monitor (CAM)

The Aer 5000 continuously monitors the ambient air to detect airborne radioactive aerosols (LLRD). Typical application fields are nuclear facilities, the NORM industry, mines and nuclear medicine (e.g. ISO 16639).

The unit is very suitable for limited space conditions due to its compact design.

The aerosols will be siphoned by the internal pump, deposited on the surface of a filter and analysed by spectroscopy. The natural background due to radon and gamma irradiation will be fully compensated.

The Aer 5000 is instantly ready for operation after powering. The intuitive touch screen operation and the straightforward menu structure allow the operation even by unversed users. The device with its plain surfaces can easily be de-contaminated.

The pump works very quiet. The open face air inflow in combination with a regulated flow rate ensures a uniform and low-loss deposition of the aerosols on the filter surface. The large active filter diameter and the long filter tape used in the filter stepping unit result in outstanding maintenance free operation periods. The unique mechanism for dynamic filter sealing avoids leakages as present in conventional movable-filter solutions.

Optionally, the unit may be equipped with a vacuum adapter (KF/DN16) to connect sampling pipes or flexible tubes. Particle loss at the inlet becomes negligible by the special construction.

Because of the high sensitivity of the Aer 5000, very low detection limits and alert thresholds for alpha and beta exposure can be achieved. All parameters, necessary for proper operation are monitored continuously and are part of the stored measurement data.

A flexible alert system warns the user in case of the exceedance of a threshold or any deviation from the normal operation mode. The signal tower can be removed from the housing for optimal visibility.

There are many options for additional detectors/sensors (e.g. NaI probe with nuclide identification) and system integration.
