Non-Contact Hazardous Chemical Substance Identification
PINS3-CF Chemical and Explosives Identification System
The Portable Isotopic Neutron Spectroscopy (PINS) Chemical Identification System combines the latest chemical analysis identification technology with the industry leading ORTEC trans-SPEC-N high purity germanium platform. The PINS3-CF offers unprecedented value with the elimination of liquid nitrogen, reduced operating cost, lightweight field deployment and built-in automatic ID of chemicals all in a rugged design.
While other chemical analysis and identification systems require sampling, opening or even transport to a controlled facility for measurement, the PINS3-CF system can perform sampling through containers and sealed vessels at their precise field location. The ability to detect potential chemical and explosive threats is now possible in any environmental condition, even in high temperature locations.
The PINS3-CF portable chemical analysis and identification system is flexible enough to be used every day to provide CBRNe security professionals the information they need, when they need it.
PINS3-CW Portable Isotope Neutron Spectroscopy
PINS3-CW combines the latest chemical analysis identification technology with the industry leading ORTEC trans-SPEC-N high purity germanium platform.
The PINS3-CW eliminates the need for liquid nitrogen and a Californium-252 neutron source, providing ease of deployment in OCONUS missions. It offers built-in automatic ID of chemicals – all in a rugged design for field deployment.
Along with the addition of the trans-SPEC-N, the PINS3-CW also includes the additional capability and features such as:
Trans-SPEC-N Battery Powered, Portable HPGe Gamma Spectrometer
In-Situ High Purity Germanium Gamma Spectroscopy for Portable Isotopic Neutron Spectroscopy Systems.
The trans-SPEC-N is an N-type HPGe gamma-ray spectrometer with everything needed in a single easy-to-handle package. There is no requirement for liquid nitrogen and no long cables. Everything is complete in one package and ready for use.
Fission Meter Portable Neutron Source Identification System
Circumstances arise where reliance on a gamma-ray detector alone comes into question; the package may be large enough to contain significant shielding, or the gamma-ray background may be seen to drop when measuring a particular package-indicating heavy shielding. The hand-held identifier’s neutron detector may show an elevated neutron count rate, or the gamma-ray spectrum may “see” evidence of gamma-rays from neutron reactions.
The Fission Meter is an easy-to-use, portable neutron detection system designed to locate illicitly trafficked special nuclear materials (SNM), particularly shielded sources.
PINS-GMX Portable Isotopic Neutron Spectroscopy Gamma-X Detector
The Portable Isotopic Neutron-Spectroscopy GAMMA-X (PINS-GMX) detector was created from a joint development of ORTEC and the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) in response to the growing worldwide need to determine in situ the specific nature of the contents of a variety of containers of munitions or potential chemical weapons. Such applications require a detector with high resolution over a large range of energy, portability, neutron damage resistance, reliability, and ease of use. The performance of the PINS-GMX detector has been verified in real-world use by the U.S. Army.
