Canadian owned and operated since 1955, Pylon is a recognized world leader in the design and manufacture of accurate, innovative instruments for the detection and measurement of radon, thoron, and their progeny.
Here you’ll find an overview of Pylon’s precision radiation monitors. The full range of products including detectors, accessories, and radioactive sources may be found in the product catalogue. To discuss how the Pylon line fits with your testing needs, please contact us.
The Pylon AB6A Portable Radiation Monitor is the next generation laboratory-grade instrument for fast, accurate measurement of radon levels. Every bit as reliable as the AB-5 and AB-4 monitors, the Pylon AB6A incorporates advanced technology and user-friendly features for enhanced performance and versatility.
In addition to proven photomultiplier tube (PMT) technology and multiple detector compatibility, new features include:
A state-of-the-art Pylon AB6A Portable Radiation Monitor will be installed in the Vancouver Radon Environmental facilities, expanding the company’s radon testing coast to coast. Short-term testing services of radon in air and water for the real estate and industrial sectors are available.
The WLx is a popular radon and thoron working level measurement monitor. This monitor uses proven, integrated solid state detector technology to detect alpha particles from radon and thoron progeny decay. The built in multi-channel analyzer circuitry and firmware allows the monitor to calculate radon, thoron, and their progeny in working levels (WL). The WLx is portable and easy to use.
The CRM-1 is a popular industrial radon monitor that is used to actively monitor radon in process gases. The CRM-1 also uses proven photomultiplier tube (PMT) technology to detect photons generated by the supplied Lucas type active scintillation cell detector. This monitor incorporates a lockable chassis that is designed for inclement weather conditions. It is designed to be mounted on a surface such as a wall. It is easy to use. Download Product Brochure
The CRM-2 is a popular industrial radon monitor that is used to passively monitor radon over an area. The CRM-2 also uses proven photomultiplier tube (PMT) technology to detect photons generated by the supplied Lucas type passive scintillation cell detector. This monitor also incorporates a lockable chassis that is designed for inclement weather conditions. It is also designed to be mounted on a surface such as a wall. It is also easy to use.
The WG-1001 Vacuum Water Degassing Systems are designed for accurate and rapid extraction of radon from water samples. The basic WG-1001 system consists of a vacuum and bubbler assembly and a hand-pump, all stored in a portable case. Variations of the WG-1001 kit allow you to include Pylon model 300A cells or offer the choice of optional water trap to reduce the possibility of cell damage if the vacuum is not shut off in time.
Pylon also maintains and operates two well equipped radon and thoron chambers for the performance of exposures and equipment calibrations that are traceable to NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and/or NRC (National Research Council of Canada) standards.
