The foot-hand-clothes monitor VITRUVIUS 8220 is an instrument specifically designed for checking gamma contamination on the body of workers operating in
areas where it’s possible to come into contact with radioactive material.
In particular, VITRUVIUS 8220 monitor performs the measurement of gamma contamination of hands, feet and clothes of the operator.
The contamination is measured by means of plastic scintillator detectors, located at hands/feet positions and coupled to photomultipliers and related
amplification electronics for signal conditioning.
The detector at the right hand position can be detached from the structure in order to measure clothes in a close counting geometry.
A possible contamination is indicated both visually and acoustically by the software application that manages the monitor.
A pre-recorded voice guides the operator through all the measurement procedure, giving also warning messages should an anomaly or an alarm occur.
