Highly Portable Se-75 Gamma Ray Projector
The GammaMat SE is a gamma ray projector with unparalleled handiness and extremely low weight. The use of Se-75 radiation source yields improved image quality. The longer half-life and simplified radiation protection result in substantial cost savings. Compared to cameras that use Ir-192 sources, it can be safely used in smaller controlled test areas.
The GammaMat SE is a gamma ray projector that has a uniquely low weight and unrivalled portability. It can be loaded with up to 80 Curies of Se-75. The weight of this container is only 7.2 kg (16 lb).
A green/red indicator shows whether the source is in the safe position. This indicator is easily visible, even from a distance.
The Se-75 gamma ray spectrum covers the energy range from 66 keV to 401 keV. Two lines of high intensity, at 137 keV and 265 keV, dominate the spectrum. The radiation characteristics are between Yb-169 towards the lower energies, and Ir-192, towards the higher energies. This makes Se-75 the ideal choice for gamma radiography for a steel wall thickness range of approximately 5 to 30 mm (0.2" to 1.18"). Se-75 provides significantly higher image quality than Ir-192.
The GammaMat SE gamma ray projector using Se-75 has been designed to comply with the latest versions of the national and international safety standards, including ISO 3999:2000.
