Combined waste assay systems use multiple assay techniques to quantify waste and produce a complete assay result.
It is common to combine a gamma system (to determine plutonium isotopic ratios) with a passive neutron coincidence system (to determine 240Pueffective mass). Analyzing the data in a combined technology assay instrument determines the individual mass of all of the plutonium isotopes and provides a complete assay result.
The ANTECH B2308 Combined Isotopic and Plutonium Scrap Multiplicity Counter for cans quickly and accurately determines the plutonium content of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM), scrap and residues.
The ANTECH Model B2307-220 Passive Neutron and Gamma ray Drum Monitor is an integrated system based on combining the N2221-220 Passive Neutron Drum Monitor with a Plutonium/Uranium isotopic gamma ray scanning instrument such as the G3501.
