Multipurpose environment activity radiometer VIRTUOSO RKG-14
Also, this device can be called: rkg 14, rkg14.
VIRTUOSO RKG-14 multipurpose environment activity radiometer designed to detect cesium radioisotopes in food and objects of the environment, evaluate detected radiocesium content in the quantities of specific, volume and surface activity, control the level of background radiation in the environment, including assessment of radiocesium radiation level as the value of ambient dose equivalent rate purely from radiocesium as the part of natural background, measure specific and volume activities of naturally occurring radioactive materials (potassium, radium, thorium) in the objects of the environment.
Radiometers VIRTUOSO RKG-14 can be used for environmental studies, radiological control of agricultural products, in construction, mining, logging and woodworking industries, as well as for educational programs.
