What Makes the CSECO Buster Density Meter the Best?

When drug unit officers, intelligence units, and other law enforcement units need a tool to detect concealed illegal substances, cash, radioactive materials and contraband items, they use no other than the best density meter ever. It is the Buster K910B Density Meter, created by Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). The Buster K910B, or “Buster,” is a part of CSECO’s renowned CT-30 Contraband Detection Kit, and is considered to be the “gold standard” of all the other density meters available on the market today.

CSECO started manufacturing the Buster density meter during the early 1980s. The US government approached the company’s founder Patrick J. Campbell and requested that he design a tool that had the capability to detect hidden contraband items using radioactive isotopes. Campbell went on to work closely with the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and their efforts produced the ideal detection tool that law enforcement officers now use. This turned out to be, of course the Buster K910B Density Meter, which is designed for anyone’s use, even those who feel uneasy about technology.

So how does the Buster K910B work and how does it surpass competing brands?

Using low-intensity gamma radiation, the Buster scans materials quickly. It detects the disparity of the materials being scanned, and gives an indication whether there are voids underneath the scanned surfaces. The Buster gives off an audible signal as well as a visual readout to users when there is an indication that discrepancies are located.

Other companies manufacture their own devices, but they have some limitations in their features, including using radio waves, microwaves or ultra-violet waves to scan. With the Buster K910B’s radio isotopes, professionals who have been using it find the Buster to be a more effective detection tool in providing accurate results, as opposed to other equipment they have also tried.

Aside from its accuracy success, the Buster also provides results faster than many of its rivals. Within ten minutes, law enforcement officers are able to scan a room to find the presence of a contraband item. Vehicles can be also scanned within five minutes. Large vehicles may take slightly longer to scan, but it still scans faster than competing brands. By using the device’s optional telescoping handle, CBP officers and other law enforcement agents are able to scan the tops and tall sides of larger trucks.

What makes the Buster the best choice for a density meter? Here is a partial list of items that this amazing and dependable tool can locate (underneath various types of surfaces):

  • Narcotics or other drugs
  • Cash
  • Weapons
  • Cigarettes
  • Dirty bombs or other explosives

In addition to the materials mentioned above, the Buster also detects the presence of radioactive material, thanks to its new feature the Rad-Aware® technology. This enables US Customs and Border Patrolers, foreign customs officers, as well as other law enforcement agents to determine if an area is safe for others to enter. They will also determine if it is necessary to send residents away from a possible radioactive spill or dirty bomb.

All of these things make the Buster K910B Density Meter the best choice; it is trusted and used by many law enforcement agents not only in the US but also in other parts of the globe as well.
