Saturn is an extremity dosimeter ideal for workers who manipulate or work in close proximity to radioactive materials and ionizing radiation-producing equipment. It delivers precise readings (minimum reportable dose of 10 mrem), can be worn in wet or dry conditions and features a flexible fit for maximum comfort.
LANDAUER’s ring dosimetry service provides comprehensive extremity radiation monitoring for workers required to manually manipulate or work in close proximity to radioactive materials and radiation producing equipment.
The Saturn Thermoluminescent Dosimetry (TLD) Ring measures exposure due to x, beta, and gamma radiation with thermoluminescent technology. The TLD is the highest efficiency dosimeter made with natural lithium fluoride.
With this design, the TLD is safely encapsulated underneath the ring cap, which is ultrasonically welded to the ring base. Under even the most rigorous working conditions, it’s difficult to remove the ring cap from the ring base, so the chain of custody between the chip and the wearer is always maintained. The cap and TLD are independent of the ring base.
The identification on the cap is laser engraved, preventing the print from smearing, peeling, or washing off. Rings can be worn in dry or wet working conditions. Smooth edges allow rings to slide and fit inside surgical gloves without risk of tearing them.
TLD Technology During analysis in our laboratory, the TLD chip is heated causing it to emit light in proportion to the amount of radiation exposure.
