GEOPHYSICAL INSTRUMENTATION SERVICES

Applied Scientific Services and Technology understand that in some circumstances it may be more cost effective for the client to own and operate their own geophysical equipment rather than use geophysical contractors. With this in mind, ASST offer consulting services based on the extensive experience our skilled personnel have gained in operating surveys using the full spectrum of geophysical instrumentation and equipment to resolve targets in all conceivable environmental conditions.
Clients using this service will receive well informed objective advice and training in the purchase, operation and maitnenance of their own geophysical equipment. ASST will guide you through the process of:

  • understanding which techniques will be the most effective at resolving your target and answering your questions
  • which equipment manufacturer and which instrument will be the most cost effective solution, given the operating conditions and type of target
  • obtaining competetive quotes from manufacturers and retailers
  • arranging shipping, import duties and any necessary import and export licenses
  • comissioning and calibrating the new equipment
  • providing expert training in the operation and maintenance of the instrument
  • securing providers of spare parts
  • securing reliable on-demand backup hire equipment of the same specification in the event of unexpected failures in time critical situations

ASST, in partnership with its associates have significant experince in eletrical and electromechanical engineering. We are able to design, test and manufacture bespoke equipment, either integrating systems and modifying sensors developed by well established geophysical equipment manufacturers, or developing new equipment from the ground up. ASST in particular has significant experience in and around radiation physics and associated spectrometry, counters and detection systems.

 

RADIATION SAFETY CONSULTING SERVICE

Applied Scientific Services and Technology provides a broad range of radiation consulting services to mining, mineral processing and other industries, government, public and community organisations in the areas of radiation protection, occupational hygiene and environmental management.

  • Particle size analysis of airborne dust (Activity Median Aerodynamic Diameter – AMAD), using a personal cascade impactor
  • Concentrations of radon (Rn-222) and thoron (Rn-220) in the atmosphere
  • Gamma radiation levels, using Radiation Alert Inspector area monitor together with Garmin Global Positioning System receiver (model GPS60) and Canary II (model 4080) personal electronic dosimeters
  • Surface contamination measurements
  • Field gamma spectrometry and identification of individual radionuclides, particularly in cases of monitoring cargo in ports and at border crossings, using Exploranium GR-135-Plus ‘Identifier' instrument

All equipment used to carry out these services is modern and maintained in accordance with manufacturer specifications, and calibrated as required by relevant regulations and guidelines. Close liaison with quality assured analytical laboratories also allows a comprehensive service to be provided in the following areas:

  • Determination of concentrations of radionuclides in water, soil, dust, building materials, food, flora and fauna
  • Personal gamma radiation and radon monitoring
  • Analysis of workplace and environmental samples for different contaminants such as asbestos, welding fumes and different chemicals
