Product Description

Centronic boron trifluoride (BF3) proportional counters are sensitive to thermal neutrons but are less sensitive than 3He Counters. The energy of the neutron reaction with BF3 is higher than for 3He however, allowing better discrimination against gamma radiation. Examples of common use are thermal neutron diffraction, neutron spectroscopy, mixed waste monitoring, soil moisture detection and monitoring of nuclear reactors operating at low power.
