Nuclear gauges

Nuclear gauges are innovative devices that use a radiation-emitting source such as caesium-137 and a series of detectors to perform routine measurements in industrial applications ranging from pulp and paper production to mining and beverage bottling, and even non-industrial applications such as archaeology.

Nondestructive testing

Many materials and machines can’t be tested or measured without destroying them – unless you use imaging techniques that depend on nuclear isotopes. By enabling vision inside and through pipes and other machine components, non-destructive testing with radiation offers a cheap and effective solution to inspecting materials for hidden flaws.
