Beta Transmission Gauges

General Purpose, High-Performance Thickness and Basis Weight Measurements

NDC’s Beta Transmission gauges provide high-speed, high-accuracy non-contact thickness and basis weight measurements of continuous web products.

  • Highest Measurement Precision – ultra-fast sensor response time and data processing enable high-resolution at maximum scanning speed with superior measurement sensitivity and precision
  • Minimized Activity Sources – smaller, lighter source capsules and less shielding translates into a compact head design with reduced radioactivity that is preferred by nuclear regulatory authorities
  • Fast ROI and Lowest Cost of Ownership – robust, cost-effective measurement solution that is highly reliable and easy to maintain
  • Preeminent Support – all systems are backed by NDC's dedicated worldwide customer service organization available 24-7 via myNDC cloud service

Beta Gauges Can Be Matched to Your Specific Web Product Application for Optimum Measurement Performance

NDC’s intelligent Beta Transmission gauges incorporate application-specific minimized activity sources, each selected for a specific web measurement application. These are each combined with a proprietary high-efficiency detector which is coupled to a stable pre-amplifier and digital converter that is resident in the detector head. The gauge also utilizes an advanced Digital Signal Processor (DSP) that delivers linear measurement data directly at the sensor level. This design insures a noise-immune and drift-free digital output to the host computer. Fast sensor response time and high-speed data processing enable high- resolution at maximum scanning speed combined with superior measurement sensitivity and precision.

Beta Transmission gauges are available in the following models:

  • Model 301 Strontium 90 gauge: For basis weight measurements of products in the range of 100 g/m2 to 5500g/m2
  • Model 302 Krypton 85 gauge: For basis weight measurements of products in the range of 25 g/m2 to 1200g/m2
