Large Volume

BC-505 is formulated to provide the best overall performance of any liquid scintillator. It has the highest light output of any liquid and excellent light transmission. Its high flash point (making it safer to use and transport than xylene or toluene-based scintillators) renders it particularly suitable for use in large volume detectors such as anti-Compton and anti-coincidence shields and high energy neutron detectors.

  • BC-505: γ, fast n, in large volume detectors

Typical supplied in drums but can be provided in detector form

  • Bulk: 1 Liter, 1 gallon (3.8 liters), 5 gallons (19 liters), 25 gallons (95 liters) and 55 gallons (liter) quantities.
