Cricket Grapple Mounted Radiation Monitor


The CRICKET radiation detection system is designed specifically to meet the needs of the scrap, steel, and waste industries. The 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 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 detector size.

Get closer, scan longer, with more accuracy –  Mounting the CRICKET in a grapple application allows direct exposure to all the material being handled. There are three different opportunities to analyze all the scrap material during the handling process. Firstly, because the CRICKET system scans on a continuous basis, material is scanned on the surface before the load is even picked up. Secondly, the load is scanned while in the grapple. Finally, the material is scanned just as it is released.
