SaphyGATE G the new Radiation Portal Monitor optimized for truck, train and cargo radiation control

Nov 08 2017 Comments 0

For few years, the requirements regarding radiation portal monitors strongly increased, involving new developments. Also the needs from the customers and the market became higher. Nowadays, radiation monitoring systems need to provide more sophisticated measurement reports, work with less false alarm and detect very low radioactive sources.

SaphyGATE G is an advanced automatic radiological portal monitor for vehicle loads. Reaching high measurement performances and resisting heavy conditions, this system is specially designed for detection of very low artificial and natural radioactive sources in truck, train and cargo loads.

Its smart algorithm tracks the background attenuation due to vehicle shielding in order to strongly reduce the false alarm rate. The association between high volume plastic scintillators, the spectrometry electronic board and the algorithm enable reliability and performance in alarm classification for the discrimination of natural and artificial radiation. SaphyGATE G is recommended for the recycling and steel industry and nuclear facilities. It complies with the standard IEC 62022.

Voestalpine, one of the leading partners to the automotive and consumer goods industries in Europe, is an important customer on this market. This group sets up very restrictive standards to guaranty the quality of its supplier material. The LR Leitl Company (located in Eggenfelden, Germany), supplier of vostalpine, is an historical Saphymo’s customer. Leitl asked Saphymo to install a radiation portal monitor able to be conform to the restrictive voestalpine requisites. Reliability, reactivity and affordable price-performance of SaphyGATE were clearly recognised during the audit. Moreover, the voestalpine certification confirms Saphymo as a trusty player in the field of radiation detection for scrap-dealers.
