Granite and Radon – Radon

Thorium produces a different type of gas called Thoron. Thorium is a shorter-lived element, which is similar to radon but decays about 6,500 times faster than radon. Thoron has a half-life of about 51 seconds, whereas Radon has a half-life of just …

Estimation of the radon production rate in granite rocks ...

2017-1-1 · 2017-1-1 · Variation of 226 Ra mass activity with radon emanation coefficient (E) for samples of the porphyritic biotite granite (C2-type) collected in the surface and in borehole cores (C2A). This finding raises the hypothesis that late alteration processes are responsible for the variability observed in the values the variables under study.

Emanation of radon ( 222 Rn) from granite used for countertops and mantels was measured on 24 granite samples. Measured radon flux ranged from 0.6 to 86 …

Evaluation of radon exhalation rate from granite stone ...

This study evaluates radon exhalation rate from 10 different granite stones, used for building construction in Iran. Radon exhalation rate ranged from non-detectable to 0.6 Bq m-2 h-1.

(PDF) Measurement of Granite Countertop and Other …

Small-scale chamber experiments were conducted to investigate the radon emanation rates of commonly used building materials such as bare concrete, granite, red brick, and sand brick.

Granite and Radon – Radon

Thorium produces a different type of gas called Thoron. Thorium is a shorter-lived element, which is similar to radon but decays about 6,500 times faster than radon. Thoron has a half-life of about 51 seconds, whereas Radon has a half-life of just over 92 hours. Because most of the Thoron never makes it very far from the granite…

Evaluation of radon exhalation rate from granite stone ...

The radon exhalation rates and emanation fractions of the Misasa granite were much higher than those of the Badgastein granite, regardless of the (226)Ra activity concentrations. View …

Determination of radon exhalation from granite, dolerite ...

2013-5-17 · Extensive export quality reserves of granite, dolerite and marbles which are used for interior decorations as wall facing, paving floors, kitchen counter tops, etc., are available in Azad Kashmir. Since these stones contain radium in trace amounts, therefore, its use as a building material may be a potential source of indoor radon. In order to assess health hazards due to …

SenSa® by Cosentino

2021-9-17 · Radon Emanation & Radiation Tested: All SenSa colors have been tested for low risk exposure to Radon & Radiation. Sensa threshold limits: Radon emanation from granite stone below 154 pCi/Kg, which represents radon emanation below 4 pCi/L for a typical indoor kitchen. Radiation below 250 CPM or 0.066 mR/hr
