Contraband Detection Using the Buster K910G Density Meter

The Buster K910G Density Meter is the updated version of the Buster K910B Density Meter, the first and flagship product of Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). Like its predecessor, the Buster K910G is known for its contraband detection ability.

The Buster K910B had been hailed as the "gold standard" of contraband detection tools, and most of its features and technology have been maintained in the newer K910G. Like the K910B, the K910G has the low-intensity gamma radiation emitter and a scintillation detector. These features are essentially the heart of each version of the Buster, because not only do they enable quick and thorough inspection, but also because it is effective in yielding concrete results. These features help the law enforcement agents quickly scan vehicles, buildings, or any other objects which are suspected of carrying hidden contraband. No wonder, it can scan many materials such as wood, rubber, metal, reinforced plastic, concrete, brick, and even organic material like dirt and water.

The Buster allows the user to do quick but thorough and accurate inspections. By using this tool, inspectors can determine whether a questionable vehicle tests positive for hidden contraband within five minutes or a suspected regular-sized room within 10 minutes. The Buster also boasts the "backscatter radiation" technology -- the low-intensity gamma ray that beams out of the Buster and "bounces off" of the suspected object and beams back to the device. The higher the density that the Buster detects, the higher levels of the gamma ray will reflect back to it. You do not have to worry about the accuracy as the Buster certainly has that because of this type of technology, even as you use the device to quickly scan from one area to the next.

Law enforcement agents, especially those who have used the Buster K910B, will even feel more confident in using the Buster K910G. It is because it has been made even safer to use. The 7.5 microcurie Barium 133 source is now 25% more or less than that of the rival density meters. This means that its radioactive source is now significantly less than that of its competitors. Plus, all lead-based components found in the Buster K910B have been eliminated, making it safer for both users and for the environment.

If the Buster K910B Density Meter had been widely praised as the "gold standard" of contraband detection equipment, users will love the Buster K910G even more. As it helps the law enforcement and drug interdiction agents protect society from the harm and abuse done by illegal drugs and smuggling, the Buster K910G Density Meter is used for contraband detection to protect them by making inspections a lot safer than ever.
