Thanks to its Canberra site, AREVA is world leader in the field of nuclear measurement instruments and radiation protection systems and in carrying out nuclear measurements. The goal of AREVA's offer in this field is to ensure the safety/security of nuclear installations and to guarantee the safety of persons working in the nuclear industry.
The North American Canberra site in Meriden, Connecticut (US) furnishes measurement solutions for internal security/safety, for checking fuel and for nuclear power plants generally. Among its products are leading-edge analytical instruments such as alpha/gamma spectrometers and alpha/beta/gamma counting systems.
In its range of measurement instruments and radiation protection systems, Canberra offers portable high resolution analyzers identifying radionuclides. These devices are used for security applications, emergency procedures and on-site assessments.
The LEA (Laboratoire Etalons d'Activité) of CERCA (AREVA subsidiary) is specialized in the manufacture of radioactive reference sources for industry, medicine and research. The lab employs grid chambers made by Canberra for alpha spectrometry.
The Canberra site at Loches (Indre-et-Loire Département) manufactures both fixed and portable radiation protection apparatus, among which are frames for monitoring the alpha, beta and gamma rays given off by pedestrians and vehicles leaving a specific zone or site.
To ensure the safety/security of nuclear installations, Canberra proposes instruments monitoring ambient levels of radioactivity. By detecting radioactive sources or hot spots, "Handle-R" helps ensure optimum radiation protection.
For increased competitiveness, electricity producers are seeking to optimize their production tool. OneProd dedicated conditional maintenance solutions for rotating machinery (motors, pumps, etc) meet this need.
Experience shows that very unlikely events occur and that plant operators need efficient systems to safely shutdown their plants and to remain in control in case of an unexpectedly complex sequence of events.
Find out how AREVA is helping utilities demonstrate the safety of their nuclear fleets, while reinforcing public confidence.
