Protection of Nucleonic Guages

Hi NDTers,
Does anybody has experience about how to protect nucleonic gauges from tripping while radiography is carried out in the vicinity. I guess all who wrok in refinery has experienced this problem. Most of the time they are put on defeat, but some cant be put on bypass and that is making tougher for radiography. Especially in profile radiography which often neds higher energy radiation.
If anyone has experience, pls help me. Thanks in advance

The gauge needs to be left in service whilst radiography is undertaken, otherwise the plant has to re-set the system if it trips.
We ahve used a small purpose made lead (Pb) bonnet to slip over the sensor during the exposure.
this is held in place by adhesive tape.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
