Radiation Detection System

PKI 8245Print

The PKI 8245 is an automatic system for radiation detection for all kinds of metallic scraps where unwanted radiating material might occur. PKI 8245 is the only solution in steel industries, recycling factories and scrap trans-shipment centres for monitoring with wireless data transfer. The robust and resistant housing has to be mounted directly into the grab of a crane, thus giving best sensitivities due to the short distance between scrap and detector. The PKI 8245 consists of 4 components: • the user-friendly interface to be placed in the crane’s cabin • the wireless, radio controlled and shockresistant NaI detector in a robust housing • the ruggedised, but easy accessible battery case • the battery charger including a second battery to be charged in the cabin


  • Detector 3″ dia. x 2″ NaI(Tl) with a shielded 137Cs source with 30nSv/h dose rate in 1 m distance (equivalent to an unshielded 35 kBq source) 60 keV to 3 MeV with sensitivity > 2300 lps/µSv/h at a response time of 2 sec.
