Description

The Colibri survey meter is a comprehensive health physics instrument with unique characteristics that can lower the dose exposure of HP technicians and other workers in radiation areas. The “always on” gamma dose feature ensures the worker is always informed – even when using the Colibri unit for contamination surveys with attached probes. The Colibri survey meter also allows for wireless data collection from pre-positioned detectors that can be placed in radiation areas – eliminating the need to attach probes, get close to the source – then manually transcribe data. Walk into the room – and Colibri survey meter performs the survey for you – allowing exit from the rad area in a fraction of the normal time.

The Colibri survey meter is available in two different versions:

  1. TTC (grey gasket) – for radiation area measurements up to 10 Sv/h (1000 rem/h). Colibri TTC survey meter will not saturate in case of a sudden increase of radiation and will always provide the user with a reliable and precise dose-rate information when most other conventional instruments will stop measuring. Thus, Colibri TTC unit is the ideal tool for daily survey inside nuclear buildings, for radiation post accident follow-up and emergency response follow-up (dose and contamination).
  2. VLD – Very Low Dose (red gasket) for public area measurements starting from 10 nSv/h (1 µrem/h). Colibri VLD survey meter is the smallest versatile instrument capable of measuring precisely and quickly background level of dose-rate changes starting from 10 nSv/h with a saturation limit that allows quantification of significant dose-rate hazard.
