Basis weight measurement
The basis weight sensor is based on the attenuation of Beta radiation emitted by a nuclear source as it passed through a material. The basis weight is determined by sensor variation in the energy radiated by the source of known intensity.
- Different types of sources available
- Measurement range depending on source
- Unprecedented accuracy
- Default air gap: 12 mm (up to 20 mm)
- Spot size: 12 mm
