AT6101DR Spectrometer (Stationary version)

NO-SAMPLING CONTROL OF LIQUID RADIOACTIVE WASTES (Stationary version)

This version of AT6101DR Multifunction portable spectrometer can be used for identification of radionuclides and specific activity measurement of 137Cs, 134Cs, 131I and 40K radionuclides in liquid radiation wastes, water, etc.
No sampling needed for all measurements.
This spectrometer can also be used for in situ measurement of gamma radiation ambient dose equivalent rate.


Operating principle


The detection device sealed inside a shock-resistant, dust-and-moisture-proof container registers gamma radiation of controlled radionuclides. Spectrometric data from the detection device is sent via special cable to a Desktop PC and displayed on its screen.
Handheld PC or Tablet PC can be used instead of Desktop PC. In this case replace the USB adapter on the cable spool by Bluetooth adapter.





Instrumental spectra processing algorithm in PC software allows radioisotope composition data displaying in the form of specific activity of certain radionuclides or their concentration, specific effective activity of natural radionuclides.
The value of gamma radiation ambient dose equivalent rate in inspection point is determined by means of instrument spectrum analysis with "spectrum-dose" operational function.


Application

▪ Radioactive waste monitoring
▪ Nuclear medicine
▪ Radiopharmacy
▪ Radioecology


Features
