Great rig man!!!
Let me know when you get results online so we can see the reads...
And should definitely start a new thread on this project!
...dielectric chillers ?
...a 3 inch filter?
...are you "ashing" the filters for further testing?
...what type of batteries are you planning to use for the solar system?
You clearly have a plan...
Can't help much there except for the basic specs. (you probably already know...).http://www.aadee.com/00pdf/nuclear/RMS-3.pdf
Theremino has good schematics and other information as well for your build... http://www.theremino.com/en/downloads/radioactivity/
...free and open source.
Great to know people like you are out there trying to do something about all this!
I live in Carolina and the German decommissioning situation sends all their spent waste to my backyard...
...a little too close for comfort.
Sad, but what can you do in a age of insane people? Better to have it safe than floating around for our kids (and grand kids [and their grand kids] ) to ingest or be "blown up" by
You REALLY should watch this Senate Subcommittee NRC hearing...
...good info on the dangers we are all currently facing.http://www.epw.senate.gov/public/index. ... 43fbc55022
We are trying to locate heavy metals by their radioactivity. The chemical properties are as dangerous as the radiation itself (and some argue more dangerous)!!!
...ALL heavy metals make ya stupid too
The average person can't even "pay attention" anymore...
Here's a few examples...
Heavy metals in everyday life! Great stuff here!http://labs.naturalnews.com/Video-Wheat ... gnets.html
Watch as adult drivers can't seem to pay attention on the roads they drive everyday! Scary stuff...http://www.nbcnews.com/id/21134540#56755308
...sad but true.
Let me know if I can help in any way.
Good luck and contact me anytime...
Greetings from Montana-
I have been very busy plowing snow recently and have not had time to work on project very much. Here are the specs I am trying to match.
I am using two bearingless 12 volt cage fans to draw 60 cfm over a 3 inch filter. I have the airflow part designed and am in process of building. Essentialy it will draw the air through a three inch filter. A 3 inch Nal(Ti) scintillation detector will be placed 1 cm below the filter. Since the air flowing over the detector will be filtered, it should minimize detector case contamination. I am building the airflow parts out of my obtanium supply and test fitting parts at home depot plumbing and irrigation sections.
The detector and filter will be placed within a 1 inch thick lead "castle". This should reduce background cpm at filter site. another matched scintillation detector will be placed at least 1 meter away to measure background. This control detector will be powered using a cannabilized Ludlum 3 to send CPM info. The PMT will be chilled to prox -26 f to maintain constant temp using dielectric chillers. Thinking about using arduino to run operations within mini-radnet system, but have to learn the coding first. I know just enough code to be confused.
The filter detector will run by a gamma spectrometer unit and piped into Theremino software for analysis.
Have ordered the 3 inch PMTs and am trying to locate an affordable sodium crystal to attach to it. If price is out of line, may need to reduce detectors to two inch. We'll see.
Once this framework it assembled in next couple months, should be able to get some tech help to get online to NETC and the Radio project.
The ultimate goal is to get this first unit totally solar.
As always, ideas and thoughts on building a mini-RadNet detector are welcome. Probably should start new thread dedicated to this project.
