CDP DM120 portable radon gas detector
The CDP DM120 Radon Gas Detector is an advanced portable device that will allow you to make accurate measurements and generate alerts in the event dangerous thresholds are exceeded.
Radon is everywhere, although radon is considered to affect only people living in risk areas, noted on radon maps.
The latest WHO report places at 100 Bq/m³ the limit value at which prolonged exposure to radon can have a dangerous effect on health. Therefore, it is important to make frequent measurements especially in ground floors, basements and garages with little ventilation which is where a greater concentration is often found.
What is radon gas?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. It belongs to the radioactive decay chain of Uranium 238 present in soil. It is the only gaseous element in this chain and is formed from radium. It is an invisible, odorless and colorless gas. Through the process of radioactive decay, radon is converted into other chemical elements known as descendants and emits alpha-type ionizing radiation. Therefore, when inhaled the gas is harmful to the cells in the airways. It can also cause tumors, especially in the lung.
According to WHO estimates, in Spain around 2000 cases of lung cancer can be directly attributed to the presence of radon gas in homes and workplaces. The only way to detect radon is by taking periodic measurements with a radon gas metering device.
