NPP3XS Portable Bubbler

Description

The NPP3XS Carbon-14 Bubbler Collection Instrument provides the accurate and sensitive carbon-14 measurements that are needed for personnel protection and environmental measurements.   The NPP3XS autonomously manages sample collection and flow/volume measurements and collects carbon-14 (CO2 form) in sample bottles for measurement in your facilities existing liquid scintillation counter (LSC/Tri-Carb). 

Sample periods can be as short as an hour or up to a week.  Sample period can be set to collect for a programmed amount of time or total sample volume collected.  The user has full control of these automated or manual sample modes.  During the sample period, the NPP3XS manages the collection and integrates total volume collected and time sampled reporting in either standard or actual units.  At the end of the sampling period, the sample bottles are removed for LSC measurement while a fresh set of bottles collect for the next sample period.

Exchanging collection bottles and aliquoting the sample into scintillation cocktail for LSC measurement is the only labor involved.  There is no need for time-consuming processing of the sample as is typical with desiccant collectors.  The measurement integrates no false positive measurements as found with ion chamber technologies.  The result is measurement of carbon-14 (CO2 form) for environmental regulatory, and personnel protection measurements.
