Based in Henfield, UK, Southern Scientific has been serving the health physics market for over 25 years and customers
include nuclear power, processing and research sites; hospitals, industry and the Ministry of Defence.
The health physics product range contains both portable and installed radiation detection instruments for alpha, beta
and gamma detection on surfaces, in air and in liquids.
More recently, the company has become increasingly involved in the supply and support of homeland security systems
to detect illegal movements of nuclear materials at ports and establishments.

The Radhound bench-top monitor and Radhound X portable monitor are powerful, general purpose ratemeters, suitable
for use by anyone, from professional health physicists to basic users. They are currently finding use within a large range
of sectors, including the nuclear industry, hospitals, research facilities and NDT labs. A broad selection of Geiger, sodium
iodide and plastic scintillator based probes covers the whole spectrum of contamination and dose rate measurement
requirements.
These cost-effective, feature-packed instruments are simple and easy to use. Count rate, integrated count and sourcefinder modes offer a versatility that makes the Radhound series of monitors the instruments of choice for a wide variety
of applications.

TRITIUM SAMPLER
Airborne and gaseous form tritium sampling
device from SDEC.
Collects tritium vapour from the air stream by
bubbling in water in the first two vials, then the
gaseous tritium is oxidised in a catalytic oven
and trapped by bubbling in the last two vials. The
tritium activity is given in relation to the volume of
air which passes through the unit.

Radon Monitoring
RADON MONITORS
Radon is the most significant contributor to the annual background dose received by the public, and poses a particularly high
risk to workers in a number of industries.
Possible radon monitor applications include radiation protection monitoring in residential, nuclear, industrial, environmental,
research and mining environments or for meteorological, geological or academic studies.
