Product Description

Am-241/Be sources emit neutrons and are used in a variety of instrumentation and gauging applications including moisture content, ash and mineral analysis using techniques such as PNGAA (prompt neutron gamma activation analysis). Please see our product specific page for oil well logging sources.

RAIMS can supply a wide variety of standard designs and activities. Americium oxide is combined with beryllium into a non-leachable dispersion resistant pressed composite pellet. This is then encapsulated by autogenous TIG welding into a 316L stainless steel double encapsulation.

Sources comply with the requirements of ISO2919 and have Special Form certification to IAEA SSR-6.

The sources have a recommended service life of 10 years. The radioactive content and radiation output measurements stated in the product certification are traceable to national standards.

Bespoke source designs can be developed to customer specified requirements.

Product is shipped in Type -A packaging.
