You must have a license from you governing body to own and use the nuclear source, and perform regulatory required shutter checks at minimum every six months and leak tests at minimum every three years, depending on the device.

As good as never! With our industry leading temperature and aging stability, Berthold’s radiometric gauges do not need to be recalibrated during normal operation.

No! With doserates comparable to typical radiation exposures in airplanes, and falling below the NRC mandated maximum doserates, with reasonable precautions being near a radiometric gauge {for a short period of time} is safe.

Yes of course! With the aid of the PRC (Product Radiation Compensation) feature, our gauges can compensate and correct for the additional radiation coming from your process.

Extreme measurement conditions often cause conventional measurement technology to fail, and it is precisely in such situations that radiometry is the measurement technology solution. Berthold offers a variety of detectors to fit the needs for your application with industry leading detector sensitivity, temperature stability, and aging stability, as well as custom engineered solutions and rod sources.

Berthold measurement systems stand for the highest precision, quality and reliability. With our specialized knowledge and extensive experience, we develop solutions with our customers for new, individual measurement tasks.


A radiometric measurement is based on the absorption of radiation when it passes through matter. Radiometry means "measuring with radiation".

No! Berthold detectors have features (XIP or RID) that handle interfering radiation and thus maintain a stable and reliable measurement.

Yes, but this can be easily compensated for with Berthold's Gas Property Compensation (GPC).

Yes! The detectors SENSseries LB 480 from Berthold have been awarded SIL2 / SIL3 certification. This certificate covers the measurement applications level switch, continuous level and density.
