PET Cyclotron Facility Stack Monitoring

The Positron Gas Stack Monitor provides continuous monitoring of effluent discharges from cyclotron (and other positron gas users) facilities.

Features:

  • Designed to provide fast response to positron gas concentration, the CMS-PET system will provide a display of concentration (Bq/m3 or PCi/ml) and volumetric stack flow (m3/sec or CFM).
  • The CMS PET Stack monitor can be networked to a facility control centre computer for remote monitoring, alarm annunciation, historical data collection and reporting function. See the 9205PET for more information on this package.

 


Stack and Duct Sampling and Real-Time Monitoring

We have the capability to survey, design, supply, install and commission stack and duct sampling and real time monitoring systems. The complete system can be tailored made to suit each customer’s individual site needs, with the number and type of samplers /monitors varying from project to project.


Noble Gas Monitor – CMS Noble Gas

The Noble Gas Monitor is an integrated solution for the measurement of the airborne concentration of radioactive (beta emitting) noble gases.

Key points of performance include:

  • Excellent MDL resulting from minimal detector response to external sources of gamma.- Low response to NORM such as radon and thoron.
  • Available in a fixed or transportable configuration.
  • CMS analysis algorithm provides a low stable measurement at background, but ensures a fast response to rising concentration levels.
  • Optional gamma dose-rate detector for dynamic gamma background compensation or dose rate measurement.

Inline Filter Holder

The Inline filter holder is suitable for use with card mounted filters of either 25 mm or 40 mm diameter.

Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for 25 mm or 40 mm filter cards
  • Filter card can be changed without interfering with the vacuum line
  • Inline filter holder with either 10 mm or 25 mm inlet
  • Full stainless steel construction

Iodine Monitor – CMS Iodine

The CMS Iodine is an advanced system for monitoring airborne concentration of radioiodine in the workplace and other areas of interest (stacks, cells and glove boxes).

Key points of performance include:

  • Automatic background compensation.
  • Filtration mechanism captures all forms of radioiodine.
  • Achieves low MDL’s through unique detector design with Brehmstrahllung shield.
  • Temperature spectrum stabilization reduces inaccurate measurement due to spectrum drift.
  • CMS analysis algorithm provides a low stable measurement at background, but ensures a fast response to rising concentration levels.

Gas Sampling Systems – GSS-1 Tritium, GSS-2 Carbon-14, GSS-3 Sulphur-35

 

We developed the Gas Sampling System (GSS) has been developed to determine accurate gas activity levels released into the atmosphere.

The bubbler can include a furnace and catalyst to enable both organic and non-organic forms to be collected:

  • Low cost, effective monitoring of gas emissions
  • Low minimum detectable levels
  • Near 99% efficiencies
  • An important factor in the measurement of the aerial discharge is the accurate measurement of both the stack and sample flow rates.
  • The unit is housed in a free standing, lockable enclosure, which provide a secure and clean sampling environment.
