The EVD3500 Hand Held Explosives Detector detects homemade, military and commercial explosives, including ICAO taggants, plastics, ammonium nitrate, black powder, other nitrates and TATP
Vapours are sampled directly by vacuum into the sampling nozzle.
Particulates are sampled by swiping a suspected object with cotton gloves and then transferring the traces to a screen which is inserted into the sampling port.
It is built to withstand rough handling and tough environments, it has a potent detection capability in a lightweight, durable thermoplastic housing.
It will analyse both particulate and vapour samples in seconds, without the need for radioactive isotopes or carrier gases.
All identifying results are indicated on the LCD and by a volume-adjustable audio or LED alarm, making detection a simple one-step process.
It can detect even minute traces (low nanogram level) of C-4, TNT, Dynamite, PETN, Semtex, EGDN, DMNB, RDX, ANFO, Black powder, Ammonium Nitrate, Urea Nitrate, Nitro-glycerine and TATP with low false alarm levels and few interferents.
