Level and density
Source Container QG2000

Radiation source container with sliding source support rod for manual or pneumatic on/off switching

  • Source Container QG2000 ©Endress+Hauser

The QG2000 source container is designed to hold the radioactive source with highest activities during radiometric point level detection, continuous level and density measurement. The radiation is emitted almost unattenuated in one direction only, and is damped in all other directions. This guarantees highest safety for the personnel and a reliable measurement.


  • High safety level thanks to highest safety classification for the source supplied
    (DIN 25426/ISO 2919, typically classification C66646) and simple and easy source replacement

  • Extremely high shielding combined with low weight ensures that no control areas are generally required and that installation in accessed areas is possible

  • Additional metallic protective capsule with O-ring seal to protect the source against mechanical and chemical influences

  • Low space requirement and simple mounting and various angles of emission for optimum adaption to the application

  • Padlock for fixing the on/off switch position and to protect against theft

  • Easy identification of switch status through sight glasses on the cover or by remote display with proximity switches

Field of application

Encloses the radioactive source used for radiometric point level detection, level and density measurement. Operating with very high sensitivity rod scintillation detectors, provide lowest possible radiation loads in the surrounding.

  • Used if the shielding effects of smaller source containers (FQG61/62) are too low

  • Activity: 137Cs unlimited GBq, 60Co to 74GBq (2000mCi)

  • Temperature: No limitation (non-invasive, extraneous)

  • Pressure: No limitation (non-invasive, extraneous)
