Polimaster Innovating radiation detection technologies since 1992

Radiation Monitor PM5000B-13

Category: Transport RPMs

Radiation Portal Monitors (RPMs) of PM5000B Series are highly sensitive fixed installation systems designed to automatically detect illicit trafficking of radioactive materials.

Application: airports, seaports, railway stations, customs and border checkpoints, nuclear plants and other facilities of the nuclear industry, nuclear waste disposal and storage sites, scrap metal industry, governmental offices, banks and post offices.
