High activity Cs-137 sources are used for dose rate measurement instrument calibration and small self-contained irradiators. Please see specific product pages for industrial, process control and oil well logging sources.
RAIMS can supply a wide variety of standard designs and activities from 10Ci (370 GBq) to approx. 2000Ci (75TBq). For high activity applications the Cs-137 is in the form of a pressed powder of Caesium Chloride blended to completely fill the capsule cavity. 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 7 – 15 years. The radioactive content and radiation output measurements stated in the product certification are traceable to national standards.
