We use a continuous radon monitoring device.
A radon CRM machine is a type of instrument used for measuring the concentration of radon gas in the air. The term "CRM" stands for Continuous Radon Monitor, which means that the instrument continuously measures the levels of radon in the air over time.
The basic principle behind a radon CRM machine is that it uses a detector to measure the alpha particles emitted by radon as it decays. Alpha particles are positively charged particles emitted by the nucleus of an atom during radioactive decay. The detector in a CRM machine is typically made of a material that is sensitive to alpha particles, such as a piece of special plastic or a thin layer of metal.
When radon gas enters the detector, it decays and emits alpha particles. These particles are detected by the instrument, which records the number of alpha particles detected over a specific period of time. The rate of alpha particle detection is directly proportional to the concentration of radon in the air.
The data collected by the CRM machine is typically stored in the instrument's memory, and can be downloaded to a computer for analysis. The machine may also be equipped with alarms or other features that alert users to high levels of radon.
Overall, a radon CRM machine provides a continuous and accurate measurement of radon levels, allowing for timely detection of potentially dangerous levels of this radioactive gas.
