 Contamination Simulators by STS Ltd

 Safe Training Systems Ltd (STS) are based

 in the UK. STS manufacture and sell

 instrumentation for the training of workers involved in

 the handling and identification of radioactive material

 through a range of realistic simulated instruments.

 They sell “off-the-shelf” products but will also convert

 instruments already held – perhaps those which are

 surplus to requirements or damaged beyond economic

 repair.

 

AURPO used two Mini-monitors with EP15 probes which

 were converted by STS into Series 800 Ionising

 Radiation Simulators (Fig 1). They work by “sniffing”

 vapour released from “contaminated” surfaces. The

 surfaces are sprayed with an STS simulant “LS1” and

 a heavy vapour is released by evaporation over time.

 Instead of a Geiger-Muller tube a gas sniffer detector

 assembly is fitted in the probe and held in place by the

 usual grille and a clip (Fig 2). This assembly draws air

 from the surface onto the detector (which in this

 example is simulating a Geiger-Muller tube).
