Key Features

  • Monitor configuration to customer requirements
  • Division of the measured waste drum into volume segments
  • Analysis of spectrometric data from each volume segment
  • Peak attenuation correction
  • Fast-Scan function
  • Detector with optional adjustable collimator
  • Integrated waste drum weighing
  • Measurement of the density of the material in the waste drum
  • Integrated WAMIS data and control software


The WAM-300 monitors are intended primarily for the quantitative and qualitative characterization of radioactive wastes with overall activity from 3 kBq to 3 TBq (for Co-60) deposited in drums.

The WAM-300 series monitors are equipped with a sealed radionuclide source to correct for non-homogeneous material distribution in the waste drum. Eu-152 is used as standard, in case of need other nuclides can be used, e.g. Se-75.

WAM-300 monitors can be customized to various customers’ requirements for measuring different types and sizes of waste drums, various waste activities in drums, different requirements for handling drums, etc.
