A simple and precise way to detect radon contamination

Mar 23 2023

Lung cancer is a serious and deadly disease that affects millions of people around the world. Unfortunately, over ten percent of cases of lung cancer are linked to an excess of exposure to radon, according to a report from the World Health Organisation.

Radon is an odourless, colourless radioactive gas that is present in varying degrees all around us. Most of the radon in indoor air comes from soil and is proving to be more of a hazard than levels of radon in the drinking water supply. When radon rises into a home or commercial property, it can be trapped and build up to dangerous levels for people inside the building. The radioactive decay will then create alpha particles, which in turn can cause permanent damage to lung tissue.

In order to address the threat posed by Radon, Euro-Gas has created the Radon SS, a state-of-the-art phototransistor gas sensor that provides exceptional performance. With the ability to detect levels ranging from 0-65,000Bq/m3, and a standard range of 1750pCi/l Rn, this unique sensor is designed to be user-friendly and can be easily integrated into both portable and fixed air quality and gas detection devices. Operators can rely on the complete data provided by the Radon SS, including current and average Rn alpha particle concentration, to effectively monitor and manage Radon levels.

The Radon SS is an innovative solution for detecting and monitoring radon contamination in indoor environments. This simple and effective tool provides valuable information to help protect people from the harmful effects of Radon exposure.
