Validation of an aqua Spectroscopic measurement system by the Radiochemical laboratory of FRAMATOME

Feb 14 2018

The radiological contamination of water can have important health, social or economical consequences. The SpectroTRACER Aqua probe, developed with the expertise of Saphymo and provided by Bertin Instruments, allows to measure gamma dose rate and qualify the nature of the gamma radiation in water, for the nuclear industry, homeland security forces or emergency teams.

A validation test has been performed on the SpectroTRACER Aqua by an independent organism, the radiochemical laboratory of Framatome GmbH (former AREVA GmbH) in Erlangen, Germany.

The SpectroTRACER Aqua probes were successively placed in the center of a tank filled with the Cs-137 aqueous solution, in order to proceed to comparative measurements.

All probes showed a good consistency with the Cs-137 reference activity concentration of 340 Bq/L confirming the accuracy of the SpectroTRACER Aqua for water measurements. The consistent results demonstrate the know-how of Bertin Instruments regarding the development of innovative and reliable solutions, in the field of environmental radiation monitoring.
