How does it work
Our technology uses spectral analysis based on innovative whole-spectrum processing of measured data, which are acquired by specialized plastic or crystalline scintillation detectors. This method allows us to produce accurate and reliable spectrum analysis outputs and is very useful in a variety of areas such as trucks and cars, pedestrians, luggage, parcels and letter shipments.
Radioactivity monitoring of transport objects on the railway (railway wagons) is carried out using stationary monitoring portals (SMP). METRA currently has SMP devices installed in the following railway stations of the Slovak Republic:
Bratislava – East, Žilina – Teplička, Nové Zámky, Zvolen, Banská Bystrica and Košice.
As these are important railway junctions, advanced spectrometric devices of the ASP class (Advanced Spectroscopy Portal) are required in this case, which allow for quantitative as well as qualitative identification of nuclides (NID). The operation of SMB on the railway allows, above all, to ensure the certified monitoring of shipments with scrap metal, which is currently required by the EU regulation.
