A variety of materials and designs can be provided to monitor NORM and TENORM. This includes scintillating plastic, large NaI(Tl) detectors used for aerial survey, standard NaI(Tl) or LaBr3 detector to monitor radioactivity level in contaminated areas.
A variety of products and designs can be provided to monitor the presence of radiation and possible risk for people and workplaces. This includes gamma detectors such as whole-body counters capable of measuring low-level activity, alpha-beta detectors to monitor surface contamination.
Saint Gobain provides a large variety of detectors used by the Nuclear Industry to build specific systems such as active and passive counters to monitor U/Pu enrichment process and gamma and particle detectors to monitor radioactive waste management phases. Detectors are designed to meet challenging requirements.
Large NaI(Tl), CsI(Na) or plastic scintillators are the typical detection solutions used in scrap steel portal monitors to detect or identify radioactive pollution or lost sources in metallic scraps before recycling. Packaged crystals of rectangular or cylindrical shape are provided with the option to include the photomultiplier, the first stage of electronics and the MCA.
Detectors with NaI(Tl) or LaBr scintillator integrated with photomultiplier provide high performing counting solution in X-ray fluorescence spectrometers. For in-line analyzers working by neutron activation technique, Saint-Gobain provides a variety of scintillators and configurations to meet the performance and environmental requirements. Plastics and NaI(Tl) detectors are the standards used by the industry when there's is a need to measure density, thichness or level.
