Radiation Sources

Most Scantech equipment contains a radioactive source. The larger anaysers require Californium 252, which has a half life of 2.65 years. Thus, these radioactive sources are replenished every 2.65 years in order for the analysers to maintain optimum accuracy.
Scantech has agreements with a number of suppliers worldwide and this guarantees a stable supply of sources for your analyser.
Please update your details with the service team and our souce manager will remind you when the time to top up gets close.

"When commodity prices were strong and rising, mining companies could afford minor inefficiencies in their plants. That is rarely the case in these days of lower-grade deposits, lower metal prices and economic pressure from every direction. “We have to do better with lower costs,” said Philip Thwaites, manager of process control for XPS Consulting & Testwork Services. “If you’re not efficient, you’re not going to be around. And our industry can be a lot more efficient.” According to Thwaites, measurement is the cornerstone of control and efficiency. “If you have a poor measurement, or no measurement, you can’t do good control,” he explained. But this is changing. More and more mining companies are conscious of improved measurements and endorsing control, automation and next-generation technologies. What is more, there has been significant progress in automated instruments recently. These measure crucial parameters in the processing circuit and equipment to allow operators to monitor and adjust process control as needed."
