Find radioactive sources the other radiation
detection systems miss with the
Cricket, the world’s leading, proven, highest sensitivity
radiation detection grapple mounted system.
Fit to any grapple, in any application!
The CRICKET radiation detection system is designed
specifically to meet the needs of the scrap, steel and waste
CRICKET’s revolutionary, yet simple design
provides an optimum level of detection capability for low
intensity radioactive sources, on a continuous basis, in
applications where radiation detection systems have never existed
before. The level of detection capability will far exceed any
conventional radiation detection system, including detection
systems that are mounted on the boom of a crane, regardless of the

Mounting the CRICKET
in the grapple allows direct exposure to all the material being
handled. There are three different opportunities to measure all
scrap material during the handling process. Because the system
scans on a continuous basis, material is scanned on the surface
before the grab even picks up the load. Secondly, the grapple load
is scanned for up to 10 seconds while in the grapple. Finally, the
material is scanned as it falls from the grapple.
three scanning conditions allow the
to provide a high degree of
detection capability for low level radioactive material. In
addition, the CRICKET’s
robust design provides greater impact-resistance then any
