LEA produces 85Kr gas and other radionuclides on request (133Xe…) packaged in glass ampoules or in metal cylinders.
Gas sources are used in detection metrology, as part of the environmental monitoring of releases from nuclear facilities.
Associated measurement systems are mainly ionization chambers, Geiger Muller detectors or atmospheric monitors installed on process lines.
Our 85Kr sources (ampoules or cylinders) are considered as unsealed sources.
Manufacturing tolerance are ± 30%. The uncertainty associated with the measurement of volume activity is ± 5% at k=2.
The default pressure in metal bottles is 100 bar. The pressure in the ampoules is lower than 0.5 bar.
