GS-STANDUP-20 (Improved version)
The STANDUP is a simple and effective solution for background shielding it also doubles as a practical stand for any detector up to 2" diameter.
Made from PVC copper (Cu) and tin (Sn) the GS-STANDUP weighs around 2.6 kg. and can be shipped without breaking the bank (and the couriers back). Once at its final location the lid on the base base can be unscrewed and the enclosure can be filled with locally sourced lead shot.
The detector stands upright inside the shield and samples to be measured can inserted through the opening at the front.
The sample sample cavity in the improved version is lined with 0.8 mm copper and 1.6 mm Tin sheet to reduce scattered Pb x-rays from reaching the detector.
One of my clients documented some excellent tests on the GS-STANDUP here. GS-STANDUP Forum Post
