Q & A

(1) Is there an ideal distance between the detector and ores?
The detector has to maintain contact with ores during the measurement process.
(2) How is the accuracy of this product compared to air suction type ion counters?
It is similar to that of highly accurate air suction type ion counters.

Please note: The EB-17 can handle ores which are smaller than the detector effective area (15.5cm2) (2.3 in2).
(3) How long does it take to collect ion count data?
It takes 10 sec in the Average mode. You can start another measurement by pushing the "RESET" button. The counter continues to display the accumulated ion count in the Accumulation mode.
(4) Does it have warm up after the counter is turned on?
Yes, it has 5 seconds warm up.
(5) Do I have to calibrate the counter during operation?
No, you don't have to.
(6) Can I measure ion densities in water?
No, you can't. This ion counter measures ion densities in the air only.
(7) Can I measure positive ions?
No, you can't.
(8) What is the lowest ion density this counter can measure?
It is 1 (pcs/cc).

Please note: 0-200 negative ion molecules per 1cc exist naturally in the air, so ion counts in this range are just for your reference only.
(9) Does this counter measure small ions?
Yes, it does. The EB-17 detects negative ions generated when the air is ionized by radiation. And those ions are regarded as small ions.
(10) Can I use it outdoors?
Yes, you can but this product is not waterproof and it should not get wet.
(11) Do I have to do maintenance work?
No, you don't have to.
(12) Does this counter come with a warranty?
We offer a one year warranty.
(13) What is the difference between an ion counter for ores and a counter for other than ores?
Here is the difference.

For ores:
A counter can measure negative ions only when a sample emits radiation.(*1) It is good for Silica, Monazite and radium ores. It provides stable measurement because it detects radiation and converts it to the negative ion count, so measurement is not affected by air flow. It does not work when a sample does not emit radiation.

*1: Ions are generated by ionization of radiation.

For other than ores:
A counter can measure negative ions even when a sample does not emit radiation. It is also good for Silica, Monazite and radium ores which emit radiation. i.e It does not matter if a sample emits radiation or not. However, measurement can be affected by air flow.
(14) What are the differences between the EB-17 and the COM-3010PRO?
The EB-17 covers negative ion counts of up to 199,900(pcs/cc), while the COM-3010PRO covers only up to 100,000(pcs/cc).
