ScanTech is a unique technical consulting company based in the North Texas Dallas – Ft. Worth (DFW) area which serves the United States and beyond as a provider of EMF / EMFs / EMR (Electromagnetic Fields, Radiation), RF (Radio Frequency) and Radiation / Radioactive material multi-spectral scanning and measurement services for Industrial, Commercial Troubleshooting as well as Environmental Home & Health Inspections / Surveys to detect radioactive Radon Gas, EMF testing, radio frequency field problems and issues, as well as background radiation levels and radioactive material .

Smart meter concerns? We now know a local Dallas commercial electrician that has been approved by Oncor Delivery to install Smart Meter shields. They are designed to prevent vandalism, but cursory RF testing also shows that they reduce the Radio Frequency energy strength by at least 95 % while still being approved for use by Oncor. Contact us for details.

Medical Device / Biomedical Equipment EMF / EMI Compliance Testing – We have performed numerous surveys for companies and corporations with pacemaker/implantable defibrillator / ICD interference concerns for all major manufacturers of these devices. We have also done interference testing for EEG, EKG, Holter units (ambulatory EKG) and other biomedical equipment.

What if it isn’t EMI? (Electromagnetic Interference) ScanTech can still assist in troubleshooting and discovering what is really going on due to our extensive interdisciplinary background. In many cases, the client assumes the problem is due to some external field, but the real issue can often be something unexpected and even less expensive / easier to fix than thought. A fresh insight from a highly experienced consultant can rapidly resolve your nightmare scenario at great cost savings.

Concerned about your granite countertops, incidents related to the nuclear accident in Japan or imported material of unknown origin? ScanTech has had years of experience in this area – long before the recent concern over elevated levels of radiation and radioactivity. We have purchased new equipment so as to specifically target these areas of concern.

NEW INFORMATION ON HYBRID VEHICLES! We have had inquiries as to the EMF levels put out by Hybrid / Electric Vehicles and our studies have shown that the AC / DC magnetic, electric and RF fields vary by year, make and model (electric or hybrid) so it may be worth getting yours tested if you are concerned. The cost is relatively inexpensive.

New equipment has expanded our capabilities in RF and AC Electric Field measurements!

ScanTech Technical Consulting: Professional EMF / Indoor Air Quality Testing & Environmental Inspections

  1. We are looking for someone to do RF / EMF testing on a Class-D amplifier (our MA220, 5 channel, 250 PA Amplifier) for the purpose of CE Certification in order to export to Europe. If this is something that you are familiar with and can do, please contact me.

    Sincerely,
    Stephen Chauvin

  2. Hello. I just read your article “Using the Wrong EMF Meter for Home Inspections: A Case Study in Professional Judgment”. Very informative. Thank you. I was about to buy the Trifield meter but not now. I am an engineer and I hate grossly inaccurate devices.

    I would like to purchase an EMF meter to measure EMF coming out of computers in my home, especially laptops. Can I pay you for some of your time to help me select a basic one?

    Thank you.

    Dennis Pasadis

    1. Mr. Pasadis,

      Yes, we do provide technical consultation for engineers and residential / commercial clients with respect to EMF, indoor air quality and other EMF / Biomedical and Environmental consulting. Thank you very much for utilizing ScanTech’s experience in EMF testing to assist you in choosing an appropriate meter!

      We hope that you benefit from what you learn in your own personal surveys and we are available for further consulting on electromagnetic fields based on what you find.

  3. I am Georg Raithel, a professor of Physics at the University of Michigan.

    I am part of a research team that is developing new sensor technologies for electromagnetic fields, including RF, microwave, THz, DC-magnetic. We are currently funded by the NSF to explore industry applications of our technologies.

    Our team is aware of your work in EMF & Powerline Consulting, particularly RF surveying, EMI, and magnetic sensing/shielding. We believe that your input and advice will help guide our research efforts. Is there someone, perhaps a technical point of contact who would be willing to speak to us? We are currently in Houston for today and the next few days and would very much welcome the opportunity to come visit (we are here today and tomorrow). In any case, we would be very interested in talking about your views and aspects of what makes a particularly useful RF / EMC / EMI / DC magnetic sensor.

    1. I am an Energy Auditor and Consultant. Every once in a while I get a call asking for detailed air quality testing to determine the content of a pollutant in a home. Is there a particular person that I should refer these people to?

      I have a device that can measure particles that helps me with home dust and pollutant issues, but I can’t tell what the content is.

      thanks

      1. Actually, you might send us in as we do sample collections for indoor air quality testing in the Dallas / Fort Worth area as well as direct photo-microscopic analysis of particles and respond to issues of medical illness that are suspected to have environmental causes. I have a strong background in microscopy and advanced microbiology.

    2. Dr. Raithel,

      It was a pleasure speaking with you today about the needs of professional, certified EMF inspectors in terms of cutting edge radio frequency / magnetic field detection and EMF testing equipment!

      We look forward to future developments with your project in terms of using it for possible applications for locating electromagnetic interference with respect to biomedical equipment or implants such as pacemakers / ICD / EKG / EEG and other market sectors such as the cellular, wireless and RFID industries.

      Best Regards,

      JAG of ScanTech Technical Consulting

  4. We are looking for Scanning electron Microscope Enclosure Electromagnetic interference cancellation system. Please send your email so i can send RFQ.

    1. Binta Menger,

      Please send the details and specifications of your Scanning Electron Microscope Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) tolerances and we will take a look. Do you presently have an issue with the room that requires a survey / inspection / testing / mitigation or is this a safety measure?

  5. Hello my husband and I recently purchased a TempurPedic mattress a few months ago. I came across several articles talking about how harmful they are, due to the polyurethane and gases like formaldehyde. I’m concerned about that. Our little one sleep with us a lot. I noticed the smell when we first received it but not so much anymore. Do I have anything to be concerned about? Are there any precautions I should take? Thank you so much for your time. I know how busy you are, but wasn’t sure who else to ask. Plus I trust your opinion. Thanks again!

    1. Hello Jennifer,

      It sounds like the mattress has out-gassed the bulk of whatever chemical VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) was present given the lack of smell / odor and the time frame. (these chemicals typically have an exponential decay in concentration over time) Just be alert to signs of respiratory irritation / distress, apparent allergies / allergic reactions including rashes and also sleeping issues which could indicate either other indoor air quality issues or contact sensitivity.

      See your doctor or other medical professional / physician if anything unusual arises or you spot a pattern.

      I assume you sleep on cotton sheets or other bedding linen that has already been washed several times.

  6. Does company provide residential air quality testing and assessment to identify potential health hazards from lingering cigarette smoke odor (components of cigarette smoke)? Previous owner of residential property was a heavy smoker; completely renovated property now used as a rental property. Also require odor elimination remedy recommendations and/or implementation.
