Neutron waste assay systems measure the uranium or plutonium content of waste containers or objects. They can be either PASSIVE (measuring spontaneous fission neutrons) or ACTIVE (measuring induced fission neutrons).
Neutron counting technologies include: Total neutron counting (the total neutron count rate arising from a sample), Coincidence neutron counting (the rate of emission of two neutrons in coincidence) and Neutron multiplicity counting (the rate of emission of three neutrons in coincidence).
The ANTECH Universal Neutron Counter N2000 has been designed to provide a state of the art neutron counting capability for nuclear safeguards, waste assay and accounting measurements for special nuclear materials.
The ANTECH Model N2442 Active Well Coincidence Counter (AWCC) is a transportable high efficiency neutron counter for the measurement of plutonium and uranium.
The ANTECH N2240 Series are enhanced efficiency active-passive neutron counters for the measurement of plutonium and uranium in nuclear waste.
The ANTECH N1081 De-Randomising Mixer Buffer provides useful test and diagnostic information for multi-counting chain neutron detectors by determining independent software readable neutron totals counting for each input counting chain and statistical data analysis for each counting channel.
The N2024-220 Decommissioning Piece Monitor is a transportable efficient neutron assay instrument for the monitoring of intermediate level Plutonium Contaminated Material (PCM) waste arising from decommissioning operations.
The ANTECH N2223-220 High Efficiency Passive Neutron Drum Monitor a high detection efficiency measurement system for the determination of plutonium mass in intermediate, transuranic or low level waste using passive neutron total coincidence or multiplicity counting, with a high detection efficiency.
The ANTECH N1003 Series Neutron Time Correlation Analyser (TCA) is a comprehensive multiplicity counter for the passive neutron analysis of plutonium.
The ANTECH N2221-220 Passive Neutron Drum Monitor is a comprehensive measurement system for the determination of plutonium mass in intermediate, transuranic or low level waste using passive neutron total coincidence or multiplicity counting.
The N2004 Passive Neutron Slab Counter & Curium Monitor is a simple, non-quantitative neutron slab counter for the detection of curium contamination in waste drums, boxes or crates.
The ANTECH Model N2098 Plutonium Scrap Multiplicity Counter is a high efficiency passive neutron counter for measuring the multiplicity of neutron emissions from the spontaneous fission and induced fission of plutonium bearing samples of scrap and residues.
The N2072 Passive Neutron Decommissioning Piece Monitor is a high efficiency passive neutron counter designed for the measurement of plutonium contaminated size reduced pieces arising from the decommissioning of nuclear plant and equipment.
