Tracerco™ NORM Monitor-IS

The ultimate tool for obtaining accurate NORM measurements in hazardous areas

  • Intrinsically safe
  • Easy to use
  • Rugged and waterproof design

The Tracerco™ NORM Monitor-IS is a ground breaking, ATEX approved instrument, with dual probe capabilities; Geiger Muller (GM) and scintillator that for the first time, enables users to monitor NORM in all conditions.

The scintillation probe brings new benefits:

  • Robust and suitable for use in challenging conditions
  • The ability to undertake surveys of external walls for internal deposits of NORM*
  • The ability to measure NORM in low diameter tubular internals (360 degree response)
The GM probe provides the traditional benefits of:
  • Perfect for alpha and beta measurement
  • High sensitivity to Lead-210 NORM
  • Bq/cm2 output for typical NORM isotopes Scintillator: CPS, μSv/h, GM: CPS, Bq/cm2. All modes have background subtraction option CPM and μR/h option available for USA
The Tracerco™ NORM Monitor-IS is lightweight and easy to use yet robust and reliable. It comes complete with a practical and secure carrying holster for ease of use.

Additional product benefits include:
  • One-touch integrate function that allows detection of very low activities for increased measurement accuracy.
  • Live background subtraction and several measurement modes (counts per second, count per minute, dose rate and surface activity)
  • Recalibration of the instrument undertaken without the handset (spare probes can be supplied to eliminate downtime)
  • Adjustable alarm thresholds for improved safety
  • Easy to clean and decontaminate Scintillator: IP67, GM: IP34, Handset: IP65
  • Large, easy to read LCD screen with bar-graph and backlight
Tracerco™ NORM Monitor-IS Options

The Tracerco™ NORM Monitor-IS is available to purchase with different combinations of handset and probes depending on your requirements:
  • NORM Monitor-IS kit - complete kit with handset, GM and scintillator probes, holster and shock proof carry case.

Customer Testimonials

"The Tracerco NORM monitor is a versatile operational instrument for assessing the presence and extent of radioactivity in many situations including both personnel and equipment checks. The controls are straightforward and provide simple direct readings in cps, Bq/cm2 and the integrated count option provides confidence in clearance monitoring. The intrinsically safe nature of the unit allows for immediate deployment without the need for prior gas testing"

Roger Bond Owner, NORMTEC
(20 years experience of monitoring in the Oil & Gas industry)

"I have been working with NORM and TENORM for the past 25 years and have found the Tracerco NORM Monitor-IS to be heads and shoulders above all other survey instruments in its class. I specifically like the versatility of the instrument in that a gamma probe can be switched out with an alpha/beta probe in the field without having the instrument re-calibrated. This eliminates the need for me to carry two different types of instruments. The fact that the instrument is intrinsically safe is an enormous plus as explosive atmospheres are often encountered in my line of work.

The company I work for performs work both in the United States and internationally and its great to have an instrument that can read out in both U.S. and international units of measurement. The backlit auto-ranging digital readout is easy to understand and leaves no room for interpretation errors and the live background subtraction feature has come in handy more than once. I especially appreciate that the instrument is waterproof, weatherproof, and shock proof as my company often performs survey outdoors in rough environments. The belt holster to carry the instrument is greatly appreciated by myself and fellow workers as we often need to climb towers and ladders when performing surveys.

I fact that the instrument can be recalibrated without the handset and that only the probes need to be re-calibrated makes calibration extremely convenient. I have an extra set of probes that I use when calibration is needed so that I am not without an instrument during the calibration process.

I highly recommend the Tracerco NORM Monitor-IS for anyone performing NORM or TENORM work or other low-level environmental radiation surveys."
