Is the Buster K910G Also Considered Explosive Detection Equipment?

The Buster K910G Density Meter is the first product by Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). One of the most sought-after products offered by the company, the Buster has been hailed as the "gold standard" of contraband detection, despite the emergence of rival density meters. Some wonder if the Buster is also explosive detection equipment.

What makes the Buster the gold standard of contraband detection? There are a lot of factors that should be considered. Not to be discounted are Buster's benefits that it brings to the user. It uses a low-intensity gamma radiation emitter and scintillation detector that scans vehicles, furniture, walls, and containers quickly for the presence of hidden contraband. With the Buster, inspection for an entire vehicle is done within five minutes and an average-sized room can be scanned within 10 minutes, to determine whether there's contraband hidden anywhere.

The same kind of technology enables the Buster to identify concealed contraband through a variety of items like wood, metal, reinforce plastic. The Buster can identify several different types of contraband that range from narcotics, illegal drugs, cash, to weapons. The more amazing fact about the Buster is that it can do all these things without causing damage to the items being inspected. Other detectors using other technologies like microwave, millimeter wave, radio wave, and ultraviolet wave do not have the same capacity and ability like the Buster has.

Unlike other density meters, the Buster is the only density meter that was developed with direct input from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents who had tested the equipment in the field as it was being developed. Their direct input helped make the Buster Density Meter the accurate and effective product it is.

Now that all of the wonders of the Buster are told, the question is: can the Buster also be considered ideal to detect radioactive material and explosives? The answer is, it can. The Buster is equipped with its proprietary RAD-Aware radiation detection technology. With this technology, the Buster detects a dirty bomb, radioactive explosives, and any other radioactive leaks that have reached dangerous levels. By the time it makes such detection, the Buster sends out a warning to the first responder who will then get people away to a safe distance until the Hazmat specialist group arrives.

The Buster K910G is now even made safer for humans and the environment. It is now devoid of any lead-based components, and its radioactive source is now 25% lower than that of other density meters.

CSECO's Buster K910G Density Meter has proven time and again that it is effective, durable, efficient, versatile and most of all, safe. It can be used in under any circumstances, even in dangerous situations such as the event of a radioactive leak which makes it similar to explosive detection equipment but in actuality, it is not an actual tool specifically designed for detecting explosives.
