Title7D10.10 - Geiger Counter and Sources
Objective

Use a Geiger counter to detect radioactivity and show how various materials can shield you from radioactivity.

StatusAvailable
Assembly Instructions

Instructions
The Geiger counter can be used to detect alpha, beta, gamma, and neutron radioactivity. The probe is attached to the side of the unit so only one hand is needed for operation. The counts can be read from the meter and heard from the speaker in the unit.

Operation Instructions

Turn the unit to X10 for the best response.  Point the probe at the radiation source and see/hear the increase in radioactive particles.  Included in our kit are the following radiation sources:

-Uranium FiestaWare Plate
-Uranium Doped Glass
-Radium Painted Clock Face
-Radium Painted DC Voltmeter Face (Airplane Instrument)
-Thorium Welding Rods
-Thorium Nitrate Heat Lamp Inserts
-Potassium NuSalt
-Potassium Chloride Pellets (Softener Salts)
-Alpha Source from Smoke Detector​

ExportableNo
Demo on DimeNo
PIRA 200Yes
Export Instructions (if different)
NO Radiation Sources are Exportable.  We will only export our Geiger Counter, but you must provide your own radiation sources.
