AT1315 Gamma Beta Spectrometer

Two channel scintillation gamma and beta spectrometer is designed for simultaneous and selective detection of the following:

  • Specific activity of gamma-emitting radionuclides and 90Sr in different samples
  • Specific effective activity of 40К, 226Ra, 232Th in construction materials

 Can be used for rapid radioactive purity determination of standardized sample heat of metal.

APPLICATIONS
 
  • Spectrometric and radiometric monitoring of radionuclide content in water, foods, agricultural raw materials, industrial, construction and forestry materials, environmental objects (soil, vegetation, etc.), metallurgical industry produce and products of other industries

FEATURES

  • Highly sensitive efficient radiometric method for determination of activity of  137Cs, 90Sr, 40K, 226Ra and 232Th
  • 1024-channel analogue-to-digital converter is integrated into smart probes
  • Continuous automatic LED stabilisation of spectrometric path in measurement mode
  • Calibration integrity monitoring by means of integrated radioisotope check sample with less than the minimum significant activity
  • Computer spectra processing with maximum likelihood method
  • Automatic recording of sample density
  • Spectra metering with on-line visualization
  • Simultaneous spectra metering and processing
  • Methodological support of measurements

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

Gamma and beta spectrometer operation principle is based on measurement and transformation of gamma and beta radiation, detected by standalone detection units, into amplitude distributions, which are further transformed into digital code and saved in the detection unit memory.
