Contraband detection is a tricky job to do, and it is even trickier if you do not have the proper tools. Contraband detection tools should employ the latest in technology and a host of safety features. Law enforcement agents value such characteristics of a good contraband detection tool and see it as dependable for their day-to-day duties.
The Buster K910G Density Meter is the flagship product of Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). Its iterations and numerous updates only prove how important it is not only to CSECO, but most of all to the company’s and clients who continue to use it.
The Buster density meter the creation of CSECO’s founder Patrick J. Campbell. Although he invented the tool, he employed the help of the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents to contribute improved features to make the Buster the most efficient and dependable tool for contraband detection.
Despite major updates, the fundamental functions of the Buster have remained the same – and the reason why it is called the “gold standard” in contraband detection equipment. It has the low-intensity gamma radiation and scintillation detector to quickly scan vehicles or rooms for hidden contraband. It allows the inspector to determine the possible presence of contraband in a vehicle within five minutes, or in an average-sized room within 10 minutes.
Even though you can use the Buster to quickly scan objects suspected of carrying hidden contraband, its accuracy cannot be contested. It still sends accurate details about the object’s density level, as the low-intensity gamma rays can penetrate as deep as six inches for the object being scanned.
Other contraband detection tools that use millimeter wave, ultraviolet wave, microwave or radio wave technologies only have limited detecting capabilities. The Buster, on the other hand, can identify a wide range of concealed items: narcotics, cash, jewelry, weapons, and explosives. It doesn’t matter where these contraband items are hidden, the Buster can detect contraband in various materials such as wood, metal, reinforced plastic, and even dirt. The Buster can scan all of them.
CSECO also added the RAD-Aware feature to the Buster. This technology helps inspectors to set up safety perimeters in the event of a dirty-bomb detonation or once any other radioactive release is detected.
Law enforcement officers need not worry about whether the Buster is safe for everyday use. The updated Buster K910G is now made safer than ever. The radioactive source is now 25% smaller than any other density meter and all lead-based components have been removed.
The success of the Buster is proven by the billions of dollars’ worth of seizures of narcotics and cash, as well as the arrests of the perpetrators who are guilty of smuggling. It is also proven by the numbers of units sold. it is estimated that more the 20,000 Busters have been sold since it first became available, including over 5,000 sold in the United States alone and 10,000 or more sold overseas.
CSECO’s Buster K910G Density Meter, as well as their other contraband detection tools, are considered the “gold standard” because they are effective at locating hidden contraband.
The Buster density meter is the most successful density meter for use in law enforcement. Its sophisticated technological features, high quality, and the fact that the CBP agents are instrumental to its creation, make it the most dependable and reliable contraband detection equipment.
