The effects of interference radiation on radiometric measurements can be considerable and must therefore be controlled. As it is neither predictable when interference radiation will be present, nor how much the impact of a distant NDT testing on a nucleonic measurement is, customers need a reliable system that is automatically dealing with such events. Over time, the technology and philosophy for dealing with interference radiation has evolved and become more sophisticated.
Berthold offers sophisticated products that manage interference radiation and provide the customer with a stable and reliable measurement that ensures a continuous process, avoids unscheduled shutdowns and therefore generate a real benefit for the customer. The features XIP (X-Ray Interference Protection) or RID (Radiation Interference Discrimination) are used for this. We help plant operators to get “RID” of problems caused by interference radiation and in doing so, we make sure they are always in control.
About Berthold Technologies
As a world technology leader in the field of radiometric measuring systems, Berthold products convince with outstanding measuring performance and reliability. The main fields of application are, for example, in chemical & polymers (etc. fertilizer industry), steel and power plants, mining & mineral processing, waste & recycling, refineries, paper, glass and as well as in the food industry (etc. sugar beets). In addition, microwave measuring systems for the determination of moisture and concentration belong to our extensive portfolio. The production of high-quality measuring systems for industry and research began more than 70 years ago in Bad Wildbad in the Black Forest.
