Dealing with radiation interference in radiometric level measurements
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.
