Detectors, Environmental, Ionizing Radiation, High-Level

Definition : Ionizing radiation detectors designed for automated detection of high levels (typically up to 100 roentgen/hour or more) of ionizing radiation that are an immediate hazard to humans. These detectors may use one or several different technologies (e.g., scintillation). The detectors typically include visual and/or sound indicators that show when dangerous radiation levels are present; some permit a rough estimate of the radiation levels. These detectors do not include displays showing the radiation rate. High-level ionizing radiation detectors are used mainly by healthcare personnel, rescuers, firefighters, and military personnel in highly contaminated or potentially highly contaminated radioactive areas, as a result of atomic power plant leakage, nuclear explosion, or any other event involving high-energy ionizing radiation sources.

Rexon Components Inc

Historically, Rexon Components Inc. was the second spin-off (1983) from the Harshaw Chemical Co. which pioneered the development of inorganic scintillators in this country and the free-world. Rexon's creation originated due to a change in Harshaw's management and philosophy. The founder, Dr. M. R. Farukhi had served at Harshaw as Group Leader for Measurements (R/D), Director of Production Engineering, and finally as Manager of Nuclear Products and Systems. Several of Dr. Farukhi's publications now serve as references for the properties of scintillators. Rexon's managers are veterans in the Nuclear Radiation Detector industry with primary experience at Harshaw. These managers are well aware of all the nuances in the fabrication technology. Rexon Components is at the forefront of Homeland Security. Our products are helping security worldwide. Rexon's Products and Services cover the entire gamut of products offered by the SGIC Companies of France which include the now-defunct Bicron, Harshaw Q/S, and Crismatec.
