PROTEC Instrument Corporation's
RMD LPA-1 analyzer radioactive source is a 12 mCi, Cobalt
57 isotope. Co-57 gamma ray energies (122 Kev) are more efficient
(at least 10 times) than those of Cd-109 (22-26 Kev and 88
Kev) source for production of K-shell lead x-rays, which are
recommended by HUD chapter 7 for measurement of lead in paint.
Therefore, the measurement time is shorter using a Co-57 source
The LPA-1 analyzer utilizes
a "room-temperature" detector, CdTe, for its x-ray analysis
that operates in a wide, 20-120° F, thermal range without
any cooling requirements. The LPA-1 analyzer's
ability to operate without cooling eliminates a cooling down
period for stability at the beginning of a job that would result
in extra time added to inspections.
The LPA-1 XRF system
has the capability of setting abatement levels from 0.4-2.0
mg/cm2 for automatic determination of the lead condition as
either positive or negative with 95% confidence according to
a PCS approved mode of operation.
The LPA-1 can data log
up to 4000 data points and is easily down loaded through an
