Additional services and information for nuclear power facilities
Take advantage of configurable pre-outage, outage, and post-outage support programs offered by our certified factory trained experts to maximize your nuclear power plant efficiency, comply with critical timelines, and manage unplanned costs.
The natural background rejection (NBR) measurement method has been developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific for extremely fast discrimination between natural and artificial gamma radiation and is deployed on all Thermo Scientific radiation monitors. Using an instrument with NBR allows you to keep your alarm threshold extremely low without the need to worry about false alarms from non-threatening sources.
With more than 55 years of experience providing products and services to the nuclear power industry, we provide the experience to help you meet your business goals of plant reliability and equipment uptime. From installation and certification services to preventative maintenance, technical support, training, spare parts, and global support capabilities, we provide a wide variety of integrated solutions and instrument upgrade packages to maximize your nuclear power plant performance.
By installing Thermo Scientific Neutron Flux Monitoring systems, you achieve peace of mind with higher reliability, lower maintenance costs and better accuracy.
