SPHINX Vortex RD - detector of radioactive and metallic objects (CE compliant)

The inspection detector of radioactive and metal objects VORTEX RD is intended for simultaneous detection of radioactive and nuclear materials on their gamma radiation, and also objects from the non-ferrous and ferrous metals hidden on a body of the person, baggage, correspondence etc. The instrument can be used as a tool of inspection in military structures, archeology, medicine and in other facilities.
The device SPHINX VORTEX RD identifies people carrying radioactive sources and metal objects, such as weapons, containers for radioactive materials. The SPHINX VORTEX RD model is designed to provide the decision of the relevant tasks connected to counteraction to unauthorized relocation of radioactive and nuclear materials. The device can be used by enterprises of nuclear industry, customs control and inspection services, special forces, security companies and other services as portable device detector of radioactive materials containing ferrous and non-ferrous metals
