Event Text

DAMAGED TROXLER MOISTURE DENSITY GAUGE

The Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) of Construction Engineering Consultants Inc. called to report a damaged Troxler gauge. The damage occurred on 7/8/06 as a backhoe's bucket bent the handle of the gauge. At the time the gauge was retracted and not actively in-use. The individual at the site called the RSO who retrieved the device.

The RSO surveyed the gauge. No leakage was found. The RSO returned the instrument to the storage vault. He resurveyed again later and still could find no leakage. With the damaged handle the gauge cannot function so the RSO is going to send the damage gage to the manufacturer for repair.

The gauge is a Troxler Model 3411B, Serial Number 13844.
