Buster Density Meter Is Used to Detect Many Types of Contraband

Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) is the brains behind the “gold standard” in density meters, the Buster K910B Density Meter. It has been widely used and recommended by interdiction officers, state and federal law enforcement agents, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers for nearly 40 years.

Part of the Buster’s greatness is the technology it uses — a low-intensity gamma radiation emitter and scintillation detector. Unlike competitor brands that use microwave, millimeter wave, radio wave or ultraviolet wave, the Buster can scan a variety of materials – metal, rubber, wood, reinforced plastic, concrete, and others. It can also detect containers, vehicles, and spaces quickly. And speaking of quickly, the density meter also provides results quickly and accurately. Typically, it can scan an entire vehicle within five minutes, and an average-sized room within 10 minutes. These features set the Buster apart from other density meters/contraband detectors on the market today.

As the Buster has the ability to detect contraband hidden beneath a variety of materials, you can also expect it to locate contraband that directly affects the density of the material being scanned. For instance, the Buster reads an abnormally high density while scanning a spare tire, meaning that it has detected contraband stashed inside that tire. Other contraband that is stuffed inside crates or other containers being shipped can also be easily detected by using the Buster. It will also be able to locate contraband in many areas, whether those areas have a natural void or have been made into a compartment to stash contraband such as illegal drugs, for instance.

The Buster has both a visual readout as well as an audible signal sends off an alarm when contraband is positively located. This amazing tool has the ability to detect many varieties of hidden contraband such as narcotics, any kinds of drugs (whether illegal or prescribed), currency (both paper and coins), dangerous weapons, explosives, and many others. The density meter does this so the contraband items can be removed from their location as well as kept from people who would abuse them or harm others with them. The Buster has tuned out so well when it comes to productive searches — law enforcement agents who use the density meter consistently confiscate contraband worth at least $250,000 a year.

Apart from the types of contraband, the Buster is able to detect radioactive matter. Thanks to its feature, the Rad-Aware® technology, the density meter can also locate the presence of abnormally high quantities of radiation. This will enable first responders or law enforcement to establish a safety zone which will help keep people out of harm’s way.

The Buster K910B Density Meter was the result of the concerted efforts of inventor and CSECO founder Patrick J. Campbell and several CBP agents during the 1980s. The company’s innovation resulted in the Buster which exceeded their expectations — a contraband tool that would be durable, effective, quick, accurate as well as easy to use. The Buster has been presently used, trusted, and approved by the US State Department, the US Customs and Border Patrol, the US Department of Homeland Security, and local, state, and federal law enforcement officers. Law enforcement officers around the world also use and trust the Buster.

Buster Density Meter Helps Stop Smuggling

The Buster K910B Density Meter from Campbell-Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) has been hailed as the “gold standard” for contraband detection. No other density meter can match the efficiency of the Buster which helps to curb down smuggling and keep drugs off the streets. No wonder, the Buster has been widely used by anti-drug unit officers, intelligence departments, explosive disposal units, as well as the Customs and Border Protection Agents.

The Buster K910B, aka Buster, is one of the components of CSECO’s CT-40 Contraband Detection Kit. It is seen by many legit law-enforcement agencies as the best density meter among all others available in the market today. It can detect hidden contraband like narcotics, illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia, cash, jewelry and other precious materials such as gold bars, even weapons and explosives. The Buster’s special features and functions include scanning through most types of materials (metal, wood, reinforced plastic, carton, rubber, etc.) speed, and ability to provide concrete results.

To prove that the Buster is indeed effective in detecting hidden contraband, take these real-life examples: a traffic-stop situation led to the uncovering of 27 pounds of heroin concealed in the rear quarter panel of an automobile. Apart from that, a spare tire was found to carry hundreds of thousands of dollars in cold cash; more money was hidden the rocker panel area. Not only that, 16 pounds of narcotics were stashed behind the fenders, and so much more. This proves the Buster is effective in detecting and locating hidden contraband even in the most inaccessible locations.

Buster has a measure of less than 6″x3″x3″ and has a weight of barely two pounds. This makes the Buster small and lightweight, making it ergonomic thus easy to grip. Buster’s 3 1/2 digit LCD has the “LO BAT” to indicate it is low on battery, as well as “minus sign” signals, which updates each half-second. The Buster is equipped with a push button, and remote display which enables for less complicated inspection, and has several operating modes. It also has a electroluminescent back light panel which makes the Buster convenient to use even in the evening or in darker places.

The alarm’s tip point can be easily adjusted by the microprocessor, and utilizes an internal standard deviation formula. Every similar unit is tweaked to a common base, ensuring a +/- 2% reading between units. The source’s deterioration can be compensated during calibration, as well as the receding quality and function of internal parts. It takes only 30 seconds to do the calibration which can be done by the user any time.

The Buster’s 9-volt battery is easily replaceable if needed, even when the device is being used. With normal usage, the battery can last up to six months.

With all these amazing features and functions, no wonder the Buster K910B Density Meter from CSECO is deemed to be the #1 density meter in the world. It is used to stop smuggling and drug trafficking and has been recommended not only by American law enforcement agencies but also by similar law-enforcement agencies from around the world.
