Spiking Test Costs

KSU Radon Chamber spikes all radon devices in a controlled temperature, humidity and radon environment.

  • Temperature is kept to room temperature (a nominal 72 degrees) and humidity is typically held constant but somewhere in the range of 20 % to 50% RH.
  • KSU Radon Chamber is at an elevation of 1020 feet, so devices which are sensitive to elevation may need to corrected for according to manufacturer’s instructions.
