Radon Daughter Dosimeter Tests in Active Uranium Mines.
Dodge WD; Parr VB
NTIS: PB/80-203599 :112 pages
Six underground tests were conducted to evaluate the performance and determine the reliability of three different types of personal radon daughter dosimeter systems in active uranium mine usage. Mean-time- between-failures estimates from 194.4 to 276.2 Hours were obtained, and advantages and disadvantages of each system are identified. Test results suggest one system is marginally acceptable for large- scale uranium mining usage. Recommendations are presented for improving the existing systems and for developing new and more satisfactory versions.
