Geiger-Mueller Tubes

Gas filled detectors

The correct Geiger-Mueller / Gass Filled tube will provide an easily-used and acurate means of both detecting and measuring most types of radiation. Gas-filled detectors are relatively rugged, low in cost and continue to be one of the most popular radiation detectors.

Geiger-Mueller tubes and Helium-3 tubes can be ruggedized to operate in high vibration and high temperature environments. Furthermore GM Detectors have an advantage of exhibiting a high degree of immunity when operating in a high Neutron Flux.

John Caunt Scientific is in a unique position in the market place where, over the last 35 years, we have been able to build up close relationships with all the major suppliers of Geiger-Mueller and Gas tubes accessable to the UK market. This position gives us an unrivaled portfilio of Gas Filled detectors to choose from inorder to satisify the needs of all of our customers individually.

GM tubes can be optimized for a specific radiation sensitivity by design modifications in shape, size, and gas formulations.

Due to the popularity of He-3 detectors in oil well logging applications, the detectors are designed to withstand high vibration and high temperature environments.
