Gamma Ray Attenuation in Hevea Latex and its Application to DRC Measurement.
Pertanika, 9 (3).
pp. 369373.
Abstract
This paper reports the measurement of the total solid content (TSC) of fresh Hevea latex by the
gamma ray attenuation technique. The component ratios of the total volume of water and solid
material in multiphase system of latex were determined by the measurement of attenuation coefficient
of latex with high energy resolution Si(Li) detector at low gamma ray energies. The result was compared
against the Standard Laboratory Method and the correlation coefficient was found to be 0.998.
Based on the behavior that the interaction of gamma ray with matter at a given energy depends upon
the atomic number of the material, the present technique may be able .to detect adulterants in the
latex, but investigations are needed to verify this.
