Abstract

An aerodynamic calibration device, known as ICARE, has been set up in France at the Saclay Research Centre to certify instruments used to measure natural or artificial airborne radioactive particulate contamination or radon. ICARE can calibrate passive detectors and monitors with sampling air flow-rates of less than 60 m{sup 3}/h. The adjustment of such parameters as {sup 222}Rn daughters volume activity, attached fraction and equilibrium factor, and the volume activity and size of {alpha} or {beta} emitter carrying aerosols, allows realistic conditions to be obtained. ICARE complies with monitor test method standard currently under development by the International Electrotechnical Commission.
