Quantification of nuclear material

Determine the mass of nuclear material or waste in a container


Counting ensures safety

Counting materials or waste on a nuclear facility is not only a safety challenge, but also a legal duty. Our solutions based on non-destructive methods can be used alone or combined, depending on the radionuclides and other existing materials.

  • Calorimetry

    Calorimetry is a non-destructive method that exploits the heat released during radioactive material decay. ​It is the most reliable for tritium or plutonium quantification.

  • Gamma Ray Spectrometry

    In-depth analysis of gamma spectra enables quantification, with an uncertainty depending on the measured radionuclides and the containers’ content.

  • Neutron Counting

    Detecting emitted neutrons during the decay of certain radionuclides can quantify them. Neutron counting helps or replaces gamma spectrometry, especially in the presence of Cs-137, Co-60, or of a particularly dense matrix that strongly absorbs gamma rays.

  • Software

    Quantification measurements by non-destructive methods are programmed, recorded, and processed by our software, which is both functional and versatile.

  • Automation

    For safety, ergonomics or measurement productivity reasons, quantification can be automated with conveyors, rotating plates, robots or cobots.

  • Integration in nuclear environments

    If specific handling constraints are required, the solutions can be adapted to be used in gloveboxes or hot cells.
