Advantages of radiometric measurement

Radiometric, or nuclear, technology provides reliable and repeatable process measurements with maximum operational safety and reliability in the most challenging conditions. These measurements are independent of pressure, temperature, and the measured material’s properties.

Safe measurements

The radiometric source is enclosed in a dense ceramic encasement. The ceramic encasement is double contained in a stainless-steel capsule designed to meet process automation’s highest standards for safety. 

Long Lasting

Radiometric instruments can last for 30 years or more because of their robust design and external mounting. Once installed and calibrated, these sensors require little to no maintenance.

Easy to install

Radiometric systems are mounted externally, which allows for easy installation during ongoing production. The detectors themselves are lightweight and can be mounted in a variety of positions to optimize the measurement.
