Is Your Density Meter Too Heavy?

No two density meters on the market are made the same, so you will encounter differences related to weight, size, and functionality. Border patrol officers and law enforcement agents nowadays face more challenges in their already tough job of tracking down illegal drugs, narcotics, contraband materials, and even radiation. So they need a density meter that is not too bulky and is easy to handle for their day-to-day operations.

Do you notice sometimes that your handheld density meters are too heavy for you to carry? There are many brands that are a bit too cumbersome to handle and scan for suspected materials. Some of the density meters sold on the market today are lightweight but this happens when they are not fitted with batteries. There are some density meters that even weigh as much as 3 pounds (or about 1.4 kilograms). So how can you work on a rapid inspection if you have difficulty lifting the device? A bulky, heavy density meter will also take up space and weight inside your bags or cases when you carry them to a particular site you'll be inspecting.

Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO), a world leader in contraband detection equipment, designed and manufactures the Buster K910B Density Meter. Considered the "gold standard" in contraband detection equipment, the Buster K910B is small and not too heavy. It weighs a little over 1 kilogram (or only 2.5 pounds). Despite being lightweight, the Buster K910B is otherwise compact, letting you feel the weight of its high-quality components that make the Buster a reliable product.

Compared to its competitors, the Buster K910B is light, making it easy for you to carry wherever you go. Its ergonomic design also makes it easy to handle using only one hand. And even when the Buster is fitted with the long-lasting, 9v alkaline battery, it will still be easy to carry. The lightness of the Buster K910B Density Meter will enable you to quickly scan vehicles, walls, furniture, boxes and cargo, and many other kinds of suspected materials. No heavy lifting and no cumbersome attachments whatsoever.

Aside from its ideal weight, the Buster K910B Density Meter has other amazing features that our clients have come to love: a low-intensity gamma radiation emitter and scintillation detector that helps users quickly scan materials for hidden contraband, illegal substances, narcotics, weapons, cash, and even radioactive matter. Unlike other detecting tools that use millimeter wave, radio wave, ultra-violet or microwave technology, the Buster K910B can identify contraband items under a variety of materials -- wood, metal, reinforced plastic, you name it -- without externally damaging the materials being inspected.

However lightweight it feels, the Buster K910B is strong, durable, and dependable. No wonder it has been widely used and recommended by numerous government agencies -- the US State Department, the Department of Homeland Security, the US Customs and Border Patrol, as well as several federal and local law enforcement agencies.

CSECO's Buster K910B is one of the lightest density meters on the market today. However, its consistent performance has made the Buster one of the world's best density meters. In the company's over 30 years of existence the Buster K910B has been CSECO's product of ingenuity and pride.
