Reuter-Stokes offers a comprehensive line of Helium-3 filled neutron proportional counters. These neutron detectors provide very high neutron sensitivity, good gamma discrimination and long-life service. Used in Nuclear Safeguards, Homeland Security, Industrial Gauging, Neutron Scattering and other scientific applications, Helium-3 detectors represent the benchmark for neutron measurements in these industries.
Reuter-Stokes continues to be the number one supplier in the world of Helium-3 detectors, offering a wide range of available designs and base materials along with a reliable supply chain of the rare gas used in the detectors.
The Reuter-Stokes Boron-10 lined proportional counter is a neutron detector that combines moderate neutron sensitivity with excellent gamma rejection capabilities. With our proprietary boron coating process matched with boron that is enriched in the 10B isotope, these detectors now provide exceptional neutron sensitivity.
The Boron-10 detectors are ideal for neutron detection in mixed neutron and gamma fields. With the proper electronics and discriminator settings, these detectors operate at gamma dose rates up to 103 R/hr with an approximate 50% reduction in neutron sensitivity. Applications ideal for this type of detector include spent nuclear fuel measurements in safeguards and start-up neutron detectors for nuclear research reactors.
As a new hybrid neutron proportional counter, Reuter-Stokes B10Plus+* detector combines the best of 10B lined and 3He proportional counters. B10Plus+* detectors offer the benefits of a BF3 detector without the health and environmental hazards associated with the corrosive and poisonous BF3 gas. Typical applications that utilize this detector technology include road gauging, hand-held neutron detectors and safeguard systems.
Reuter-Stokes continues to be the number one supplier in the world of these detectors with a wide range of available designs and base materials along with a reliable supply chain of the rare gas used in these detectors.
