Beta Plus™ Basis Weight Transmission Sensor

Save on raw materials, reduce scrap, improve yields, and produce higher quality products. The Thermo Scientific™ Beta Plus™ Basis Weight Transmission Sensor provides accurate on-line basis weight measurements for a variety of web gauging processing applications. Beta Plus sensor measurement is based on the absorption of beta particles emitted from the source to determine the basis weight, resulting in best measurement and the best control for your process, whether it's film and sheet extrusion, extrusion coating, nonwovens, roofing, building products, gum calendaring, or vinyl calendaring.
