The K910B Buster Compared to Other Contraband Detection Equipment

The Buster K910 Density Meter and Contraband Detector
The Buster K910 Density Meter is used for contraband detection but is also equipped with Rad-Aware® technology to alert first responders to potential radioactive danger.

With the War on Drugs and the black market, it has become more important than ever to have good contraband detection in place. One piece of contraband detection equipment that has been proven to be a useful tool in this effort is the Buster K910B Density Meter. Often referred to as the “gold standard” of contraband detection, the Buster is used across the country.

Patrick J. Campbell created the Buster, and he has over 35 years of experience in the design and creation of contraband detection equipment and radioactivity detection equipment. He makes instruments that are simple to use even when the user has no experience with technology. He worked alongside the US Customs and Border Patrol and the federal government when designing the Buster. It was originally intended for cash and narcotics, but is just as effective in finding other contraband.

The Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) manufactures the Buster K910B Density Meter. It works by emitting gamma radiation at a very low intensity and detecting scintillation. This combination allows for quick scanning and rapid results. An entire vehicle can be scanned in under five minutes, and most average rooms can be scanned in less than ten minutes.

Other equipment available for contraband detection work differently, using millimeter or radio wave, microwave or ultraviolet, is seen as inferior by many professionals because they are limited. The most notable limitation of these other devices is the material through which they scan – other devices scan through only one material rather than variety of shielding like the Buster can. The K910B Buster Density Meter is able to scan through metal, wood, or plastic – even reinforced plastic. Because of this, hidden items can be found without damaging the containers in which they have been hidden.

The Buster’s LCD video display is accompanied by an audio response, and has an optional telescoping handle that allows it to reach areas that would be otherwise inaccessible. These help the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, the Coast Guard, the National Guard, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and law enforcement all across the country with contraband detection.

The biggest difference between the Buster K910B Density Meter and other contraband detection devices is its ease of use for any user, even those who have never used anything like it before. CSECO offers training, if needed, to those who purchase and their units are guaranteed. You can reach them at info@cseco.com or 510-864-8010.
