Generally most use people use the badges that you wear and then send in for analysis.

We use the dosimeter badges and also check every morning with the machine at full power using a handheld meter around the door openings and glass just to be safe. JD

For insurance purposes we verification... Here is a snippet from Glenbrooks website.


Design Safety Standards The design safety standards pertaining to Industrial X-ray Inspection Systems can be found in "Code of Federal Regulations" 21 CFR Subchapter J, Part 1000 which is obtainable from: The U.S. Government Printing Office Superintendent of Documents Mail Stop: SSOP Washington, D.C. 20402-9328

Part 1020.40 c1 of this publication reads: "Radiation emitted from the cabinet x-ray system shall not exceed an exposure of 0.5 milliroentgens (mR) in one hour at any point five centimeters outside the external surface." (Note: normal background radiation is approximately 0.02 mR/hr at sea level and approximately 0.5 mR/hr in a plane at cruising altitude during the day.)

Particular State or Governmental regulations should be obtained by contacting the Radiation Control Agency of your state or country.

X-ray Inspection Systems must be registered with your state or governing agency. In many cases, Glenbrook can help you by providing registration forms and/or contact information.

Radiation Monitoring Your specific radiation control agency has established specific guidelines regarding the monitoring of possible radiation leakage from industrial x-ray inspection systems. There are a number of measures recommended to provide a means of radiation leakage monitoring.

Dosimeter Badges Dosimeter badges can be placed by the equipment or worn by the individual operator to constantly record the integrated x-ray dose. At the end of the reporting period, a replacement dosimeter is received and the recording dosimeter returned to the dosimeter service company. A report is issued tabulating any x-ray dose received.

A dosimeter service is most useful in that written records are established for the facility, documenting that no radiation leakage has occurred.

Enjoy, cal
