Dewberry, R.A.; Williams, D.R.; Lee, R.S.; Roberts, D.W.; Arrigo, L.M.; Salaymeh, S.R. Calibration of the HB-Line active well neutron coincidence counter for measure of LANL 3013 highly enriched uranium product splits. Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry 2009 (279) 539-546.
In this paper, the setup, calibration, and testing of the F-Area Analytical Labs active well neutron coincidence counter (HV-221000-NDA-X-1-DK-AWCC-1) in SRNL are described for use in the Savannah River Site (SRS) transuranium metal production facility to enable assay of mixed uranium/plutonium metal product. The instrument was required within a three-month window for availability upon receipt of LANL uranium oxide samples into the SRS facility. Calibration of the instrument in the SRNL nuclear nondestructive assay facility in the range 10-400 g HEU is described. We also report qualification and installation of the instrument for assay of the initial suite of product samples.
