THIS IS A CLOUD CHAMBER THAT I BUILT THAT DOES NOT NEED DRY ICE TO PRODUCE THE NEEDED TEMPERTURE GRADIENT NEEDED TO PRODUCE ALPHA TRACKS. IT USES TWO PELTIER COILS IN COMBINATION WITH TWO POWER SOURCES IN A CASCADE FASHION TO PRODUCE THE LOW TEMPERTURES NEEDED. ALSO BUILT INTO THE UNIT IS A HEAT EXCHANGER AND TWO FANS TO REMOVE THE HEAT TO GET TO THE LOW TEMPERTURE NEEDED. IT RUNS ON 120 VOLT HOUSEHOLD CURRENT AND IS QUARANTEED TO WORK. PROVIDED WITH THE UNIT IS A AMERICIUM 241 ALPHA SOURCE AND A SMALL AMOUNT OF ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL TO GET YOU STARTED. ALL YOU NEED IS A GOOD LIGHT SOURCE LIKE THE LED MAG LIGHT SEEN IN THE PHOTOS. THE RING STAND, LIGHT AND ZEROSTAT GUN ARE NOT INCLUDED INAUCTION. THE STARTING PRICE IS WAY BELOW THE COST OF THE ITEMS USED TO BUILD THE CHAMBER. A SIMILIAR UNIT SELLS FOR OVER $400 AND UNITED NUCLEAR HAD A DRY ICE UNIT THATSOLD FOR #250.
