We are partners with Berthold Technologies in Nigeria, providing high level measurement gauges used to monitor or measure ranges, ranging from a few millimeters up to several dozen meters. Based on the radiometric principle, our level gauges are reliably operated under extreme conditions. The measurement is carried out irrespective of the material temperature, pressures or chemical properties of the measured material.

When you work with unsealed radioactive materials it generates potential contamination of surfaces. Berthold’s highly specialized and sensitive instruments provide early warnings of the presence of surface contamination and help to prevent inadvertent transfer of radioactivity. Contamination monitoring has been one of her core competences.

Dose and dose rates concepts were defined in order to quantify the effects of ionizing radiation to human beings. In the routine of radiation protection on sites or in laboratories, where radiation fields could exist, Berthold offers individual monitoring and/or area monitoring as required. Berthold provides several products for area monitoring in gamma and neutron radiation fields. Our product specialists are available always with their support for special applications.

Radiation Detection and Monitoring:

Activity is a measure of the amount of radionuclide(s) in a material emitting ionizing radiation. Activities in samples are measured in Becquerel. Berthold offers several instruments for alpha-beta or gamma counting; especially for environmental samples or wipe tests for low or even very low detection limits required.

Monitoring of airborne radioactivity is yet another area of her core competences and has specialized in monitoring of particulates, iodine, noble gases and tritium. Her experts provide special solutions to match the specific requirements of the application on site and also offer room air monitoring, stack monitoring and also ranges to water monitors.

Radiation Data Acquisition and Processing:

Berthold Technologies provide several data acquisition and processing systems as well as software equipment which could be used for a variety of measuring applications in all scopes of radiation protection and measurement techniques.

Additionally, is her years of experience in the provision several probes and sensors for various radiation protection applications. These products cover a wide range of radiation levels or energy ranges.

The Berthold Advantage:

Berthold’s knowledge and experience in physics and in the techniques of highly sensitive detection of light, nuclear radiation and microwave frequencies, together with the use of modern electronics and software, has allowed her to maintain an excellent and longstanding reputation as a competent partner in solving diverse and difficult measurement problems, and as a supplier of innovative and up-to-date instruments of the highest quality and reliability. To be on such a high level of knowledge and experience, more than 10 % of sales revenues are spent on research and development, assisted by close ties with several European universities and research institutes in Germany and abroad.
