Radon is an odorless, colorless, gas that is naturally-generated, principally through radioactive decay of the uranium present in soils and rocks, although occasionally it can also be present in construction materials (concrete, brick and natural stone) and in water from wells, emitting Alpha particles and decaying into Polonium and Lead.
The main pathways of entry of this gas into buildings is through cracks, joins, drains, downspouts, cavities around pipes, cables, or simply through the porosity of various materials used in the construction.
The highest concentrations are detected in basements, cellars, and especially the deeper an enclosure is with respect to ground level.
DURAN ELECTRÓNICA has developed RADET-86 which, using a pulse ionization chamber and a microprocessor with highly complex algorithms, is designed to detect Alfa particles generated by radon gas and to show the concentrations present in the atmosphere. It also comes with a memory that continuously stores the concentrations obtained by date and time for up to one year, for subsequent dumping and study.
RADET-86, incorporates a Wifi connection, 2.4Mhz- Bluetooth, which allows for programming, viewing of graphs and obtaining measurement data.
