The experts for measurement solutions
Due to the unique variety of sensors and measurement components Berthold offers the optimal solution in terms of measurement performance, practical feasibility and cost. With hundreds of systems installed in pulp & paper mills worldwide, we have the experience and the technical know-how to even solve your measurement tasks no matter if a new system or a retrofit solution is required.
State of the art technology
- Experts in proven retrofit
- No exposure to process media and therefore unaffected by acidic, caustic, abrasive and sticky conditions
- Maintenance free and wear-resistant
- Easy to install on existing pipes and vessels via clamp-on solutions
- Smooth handling and operation
- Outstanding long-term stability
With hundreds of systems installed in pulp & paper mills worldwide, we have the experience and the technical know-how to solve your measurement tasks no matter if a new system or a retrofit solution is required. In fact, Berthold detectors can be retrofitted on existing measurements where the source has become too weak to work with the current detector. Nuclear sources naturally decay over time, losing their strength, until eventually there is not enough activity left to reliably measure your process. Source replacements are costly, time consuming, and does not work towards a reduction in overall site source activity. Fortunately, we have another solution. Berthold has the most sensitive and stable detectors on the market, a simple replacement allows users to extend the life of their existing sources by years, while improving measurement reliability for all density and level applications.
Detector retrofit program to improve your production
Especially in low radiation conditions, our highly sensitive detectors improve the signal to noise ratio, what is resulting in superior measurement performance compared to competing systems. Source replacement is costly, time consuming, and does not work towards a reduction in overall site source activity.
SIL certification available
The SENSseries LB 480 detectors are certified for use in SIL2 applications. Even SIL3 is achieved with homogenous redundancy. The certificate covers all measurement applications, from high level or low level alarms to continuous level measurement. Thus safe operation of critical pulp and paper processes is guaranteed.
A reliable measurement is vital for the operation of a process and is therefore, our highest priority. Berthold’s detectors operate absolutely stable irrespective of changes in ambient temperature. Even drastic temperature shifts, e.g. from winter to summer don’t irritate the measurement drift. Our patented method for detector stabilization compensates for temperature influences and aging.
Minimal source activity
We are committed to the ALARA principle. ALARA stands for: As Low As Reasonably Achievableand aims to keep the source size to a minimum. According to this, our sources are specifically designed for your individual application. As a result, our sources are equipped with remarkably low activities, which is due to our great advances in the high-sensitive detector technology.
