The ARCHIMEDES III radiation portal monitor is designed to measure the radioactivity level of excavation materials of various nature.

The portal is composed, in its standard configuration, of two couples of large surface detectors (5000 cm2), each mounted on the sides of the mechanical structure.

The portal configuration provides a wide measurement area and it guarantees the best sensitivity. The monitor has an open top; this allows to easily place the containers and boxes to be monitored on the platform.

The boxes have specific and defined standard dimensions, which can be inserted in the system database so that they can be recalled during the measurements.

The relative position of the detectors is adjustable through a PLC, to maximize the counting efficiency according to the different geometries.

ARCHIMEDES III is equipped with a platform scale, installed at the base of the measurement area, to measure the weight of the boxes.

The whole system is managed by the user-friendly software installed on the control PC.

The environment background is continuously measured, and it is automatically subtracted from the measurements.
