Sealed Source Supply & Disposal

McKeng offer a cost effective supply and disposal service for sealed sources. Our suppliers specialise in supplying high quality, high performance radiation sources. A comprehensive quality control process guarantees all industrial sources meet or exceed all industry standards, including United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) regulations.

Our suppliers provide radiation sources used in a wide variety of testing and measurement applications, specialising in non-destructive testing but also including x-ray fluorescence, neutron activation analysis, thickness/level/mass/flow gauging, oil well logging, and security imaging & inspection.

Sealed Sources Available

Cesium/Caesium-137 (Cs-137)

Cesium-137 is widely used throughout the construction industry for level, moisture, and thickness gauging applications. Cesium is also commonly used in medical research & treatment and oil well drilling.

Our Cs-137 sealed source designs provide a cost-effective alternative to OEMs, meeting or exceeding regulatory requirements for sealed source encapsulations.
