Safety Source Capsule

Radiation sources used for radiometric measurements are sealed in an extremely tight and durable capsule to prevent contamination. The quality of this capsule is an essential factor, as radiometric measuring systems often work in the most demanding and hostile process conditions. The safety source capsule SSC sets new standards in safety and reliability.
It consists of double or triple encapsulation, each nestled capsule highly resistant to heat and corrosive atmospheres. Even under extreme measuring conditions SSC can be used without hesitation.


As Low As Reasonably Achievable

We are committed to the ALARA principle. ALARA stands for: As Low As Reasonably Achievable and aims to keep the source size to a minimum.

In accordance with this principle, we select source activity specifically for your application based on the process data and measurement requirements.

Due to our highly sensitive detectors, we are able to use very low source activities while maintaining measurement accuracy and reliability. 

Benefit from our safety awareness, custom solutions, and the reduced cost for shielding and transportation


Source exchange

We guarantee flawless exchange of sources. The source number is all we need to select the suitable replacement source for your application and send it directly to your site. And if you don’t want to handle the exchange on your own, our experienced service engineers are also prepared to perform it for you. Careful and sustainable handling of radioactive materials is one of our priorities.

Return of sources

We will take back all Berthold sources - anytime and hassle-free. Our project engineers will be pleased to assist you in organising the transport.
