Uranium Ore- Face Scanning System (GM Based)
Uranium Ore Face Scanning System, Type : FS900 manufactured by Nucleonix Systems is exclusively designed to meet the requirements in Uranium mines for oreface scanning for mining purposes to estimate the ore grade.
Measuring Unit developed by Nucleonix Systems is a compact, light weight, portable and battery powered unit. System essentially has two parts consisting of
(a) Electronic measuring unit
(b) Face scanning probe assembly comprising of a detector with adequate shielding is 2p geometry and a long connecting cable.
Unit has three modes for data acquisition namely CPS, CPM and GRADE. In GRADE mode when operated this instrument directly reads, computes and displays ore grade in ppm of course the reading is updated on each time constant (TC).
Initially, this unit is to be calibrated using ore standards. First BG (Background) and averaged BG is acquired and remembered by the unit. Then user can place one to three standard graded samples and enter their values into the system. Once this is done, unit gets calibrated and is ready for use.
|Detector||Halogen Quenched Beta- Gamma Radiation Detector Type : GM137.|
