The Soeks Defender Geiger Counter / Radiation Detector is designed for measuring background radiation and detecting objects, food products and building materials contaminated by radioactive elements.
The effects of radiation on the human body is called irradiation. During this process, the energy of radiation is transmitted to human cells, destroying them. Radiation exposure can cause all kinds of diseases: infectious deseases, metabolic disorders, cancers, infertility, cataracts, and more. Radiation influences the cycling cells espessially strongly, that is why it is especially dangerous for children.
Taking advantage of using air transport, we rise in the air for more than 10 km and thus the plane loses shield protection from the Earth's atmosphere, leading to a significant increase in additional radiation exposure from space at high altitudes. It happens because of the thin layer of atmosphere that absorbs cosmic rays. Radioactive gamma rays from fuselage of the plane is not extinguished, and it is the most dangerous part. Tourists do not complain because the radiation has no color, no smell, no taste, and the effects of it can be manifested through the years.
For example, trans-Atlantic flight from the U.S. to Europe is accompanied by an additional effect on the body of cosmic radiation at a dose of about 0.05 mSv. When raising to an altitude of about 10.5 km shielding effect of the earth's atmosphere partially disappears, and due to it airline passengers and members of airline crew get a little extra dose of radiation.
The pilots and other crew members of jetliners, who often fly across the Atlantic ocean or across the continent, can regularly accumulate radiation dose in excess of 5 mSv per year. We shouldbear in mind that it is the maximum allowed for the general population (the average rate for the countries of Western Europe).
Pro forma, the flight crew should be attributed to the employees associated with radiation, but in practice this never happens. On the average the doses received by them are higher than those at the vast majority of workers in other professions, including hospital workers and nuclear power workers.
Aircrew members have to deal with radiation, which is for sure not created by a human being. It is a natural entity and it has always been at altitude. As for the risk, it was definitely created by a human, spending all his working time at an altitude of 10.5 km above the earth's surface. That is to say he risks more than people in natural environment.
The Soeks Defender Geiger Counter is designed for measuring the cumulative radiation dose and assessing the radioactivity level of any item and detecting objects, food items and construction materials contaminated with radioactive elements.
The Soeks Defender Radiation Detector easily gauges radioactivity levels based on ion radiation intensity (gamma radiation and beta particle stream) and x-ray radiation levels.
Measurements made with the device display exact background radiation levels in μSv/h with a message describing the level of background radiation:
Soeks Geiger Counters / Radiation Detectors are superior to other household radiation dosimeters.
Soeks Geiger Counters were acknowledged due to their exceptional performance and high levels of precision. Typical radiation detectors display exposure dosage ranging from 5 to 1,000 μR/h, while Soeks devices provide a higher level of precision, from 5 to 100,000 μR/h. Only the Soeks Geiger Counter boasts a color display, graphical representation of measurements and 127 measurement points. The device also possesses a hi-tech design, is lightweight, compact and capable of being charged via USB.
The biggest issue with standard issue devices of this type is that the majority of household radiation detectors have radioactive sensors made in the 80’s, right after the Chernobyl disaster, and as such, their life cycle is swiftly coming to an end. In contrast, Soeks Radiation Detectors possess sensors that are up-to-date and much more accurate.
