TEPC Molds

The Tissue Equivalent Proportional Counter (TEPC) is a major component of the on board radiation detector. A tissue equivalent plastic, that responds to radiation in the same manner as human tissue, will be compressed by these two molds to form the spherical detector. Compression molding was determined to be the optimal technique for fabricating the TEPC and both the female and male molds were designed by Luis, an Automotive & Vehicle Technology student.
