Features

  • Performs full gamma spectroscopy and accurately characterizes containers of waste
  • Saves time and labor by assaying waste in a large container or its shipping container
  • Modular design can be configured for samples from B-25 (1 x 1 x 3 m3) boxes through ISO shipping containers
  • Fully assays a B-25 box in 30 min. and an ISO container in 2-3 hours
  • 0.01 Bq/g (0.3 pCi/g) typical detection limit for a B-25 box
  • Available with manual, powered, or automatic conveyor systems for sample handling
  • Multiple Germanium detectors (typically four) featuring:
    – Adjustable detector height to match sample size
    – Adjustable detector-to-sample distance to handle low or high activity samples
    – Computer controlled lateral motion to count the entire container
    – ICB-NIM electronics for remote system control
    – Network access for remote interrogation and management
    – Utilizes a wide range of data correction tools for accurate results

Description

The Modular Gamma Box Counter system reduces the time and labor required to process waste by giving you the ability to assay it in shipping containers too large to be handled by traditional waste assay systems. Standard B-25 boxes (typically 4 x 4 x 6 ft) can be assayed to a detection limit of 0.3 pCi/g (typical for nuclides >300 keV and 100% yield) in as little as 30 minutes, and a full sized ISO shipping container (typically 8.5 x 8 x 20 ft) processed in two to three hours. Compared to the alternative of unloading the container and/or counting the contents individually, significant savings in handling time and labor can be readily achieved. And, since a very large fraction of the container is analyzed (much larger than traditional sampling techniques), a more accurate result is commonly obtained for those samples with non-uniformly distributed radioactivity.

MODULAR DESIGN FOR FLEXIBILITY

The counter utilizes a modular design, allowing it to be easily adjusted to handle a wide range of sample sizes and shapes in the optimum configuration.

MOVABLE DETECTOR ASSEMBLIES

Movable Detector Stands, adjustable for both sample height and size, are the key to the counter’s flexibility. Position them on either side of a sample stand or optional conveyor, and you have a system configured for processing boxes. Or, use one − with all four detectors on it − at one side of a covered loading platform, drive up a truck with a shipping container, and the exact same system can be used for assaying full sized ISO shipping containers.
