TowerSENS Detector

TowerSENS DetectorTowerSENS Detector With a max. length of 8m, the TowerSENS rod detector is specifically designed to monitor long measuring ranges. With only one electronic unit and only one flameproof-housing, the TowerSENS is significantly more economical than systems comprising several short cascading detectors. Moreover, the wiring efforts and the risk of complete system failure is drastically reduced.


TowerSENS uses a scintillation rod - 2 inches (50mm) in diameter to ensure high sensitivity and accuracy over the whole measuring range. Therefore the TowerSENS detector can work with 15-20 fold less source activities compared to scintillation fiber technology.

Due to the stainless steel housing and the robust scintillation rod, the TowerSENS can work in the most demanding of process conditions. Our patented method for detector stabilization reliably compensates for temperature influences and aging effects and ensures the outstanding detector performance over many years.
