PTW 30013 Waterproof Farmer® Chamber, MOST POPULAR.

The 30013 has a nominal photon energy range from 30 kV to 50 MV, the electron energy range is from 10 MeV to 45 MeV.  This chamber type is of rugged construction, since the wall material is graphite with a protective acrylic cover and the electrode is made of aluminum.  The guard ring is designed up to the measuring volume.  A calibration certificate for calibration in absorbed dose to water or air kerma is included with each chamber.  Air density correction is required for each measurement

• Waterproof, fully guarded chamber

• Vented sensitive volumes of 0.6 cm3

• Suitable as therapy chamber for use in water

• Flat energy response

• Correction factors needed to determine absorbed dose to water or air kerma are published in the pertinent dosimetry protocols.

• The chamber is waterproof and can be used in water or solid state phantoms

Waterproof therapy chamber for absolute dosimetry in high-energy photon, electron and proton beams.
