In many areas military industrial complex devices or devices operated by various radiation were used. Work with them is strictly regulated, using well aware of safety. Therefore, problems almost never arise. Where it can be dealt with.
As a typical example, we can consider a small Ukrainian town Balakleya. Not far from the city is something called “65th Balakleevsky Arsenal of the Ground Forces of Armed Forces of Ukraine. Pretty well filled with weapons and equipment. He didn’t go on the ground. But on March 23 there was for some unknown reasons (sabotage, negligence, accident, xs) there was a fire. Booze notable. The city was evacuated as a radius of 10 km.
It was a rocket, it was a rocket, it was a rocket. And very much. So, because household dosimeters There is a possibility of a dangerous thing. And what the hell is that. So.
Old artillery sights
Produced in the forties and working with radioactive substances knew very much. And shoved them almost anywhere. Fortunately, there are but not yet, fonit can up to 2.5 mR / hour. Immediately this will not kill you, of course. And not immediately – too. But it’s not a good idea.
Night sights for AK
In the presence of Radium-226. It emits quite weakly, but stably – up to 6 mR / hour. It is a long time ago. But at the military arsenal purely theoretically could be stored. After all, these things do not like to throw out even hopelessly outdated things. You’ll never have enough sights.
This is a radioactive isotope strontium-90 or yttrium-90, which is registered by a sensitive sensor. Widely applied in the aviation industry. And, of course, in military aviation. It is not strong enough to negatively affect bone tissue over time.
Flaw detector BGI-60
This is a gamma radiation unit. It is important that the industry weighs it. The radiation source is an ampoule with cesium-137. If the case is damaged, it can emit up to 2 x-rays (or 0.017 Sievert) per hour. And radiation sickness can be reached at 0.03 sievert. It can be found in many areas: abandoned factories, mines, processing plants. Items receiving color … In short, this radioactive object is a dangerous thing.
Laboratory containers of high protection
But they can be absolutely anything. These radioactive crap can be both empty and filled with something that is very strong. Simply, they were most often used to test and calibrate dosimeters. Most often, you can encounter containers filled with cesium-137, which is fraught with 2 x-rays per hour. So this thing is not to touch or check for content.
Container from PRHM-1M
In the list of devices included in the field chemical repair workshop It can be used to check and calibrate military dosimeters. Again, cesium-137, only more and more powerful. When it comes to the level of 2.5 mR / hour at 40 meters … And in the area is about 25 P / hour.
RID-1 smoke detector
Stuck in their own amazing. Registers the presence of smoke even at a concentration of 0.1 mg / m3. That’s plutonium-239. It is possible to choose the decay products. Case of protective multirange dosimeters show almost 25 R / h (oh, 21 sievert / h). You can get a number of disasters. And it needs to be treated.
So, it has been damaged.
