Unique Nuclear Detector Technologies for Different Reactor Types
Photonis Nuclear Instrumentation has been a global leader in designing and manufacturing Neutron and Gamma Detectors in the nuclear industry for more than 50 years.
Safety is their overriding priority. Photonis contributes to the safety system of Instrumentation and Control (I&C) systems with detectors for reactor instrumentation (ex-core and in-core) based on fission chambers, boron-lined proportional counters and gamma ionization chamber technologies, and transmission lines in extreme environments.
Photonis offers unique nuclear detector technologies compatible with different reactor types and environments, such as high level of radiation, high temperature, high external pressure and Loss of Coolant Accident (LOCA) and post-LOCA protection.
Broad Experience in the Nuclear Industry
In France, they partner with Électricité de France (EDF), Framatome, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), TechnicAtome and ORANO (fuel reprocessing plants and waste storage).
In the rest of the world, they have also gained experience in pressurized water (PWR), boiling water (BWR), heavy water (HWR) reactors, and other reactor designs. Photonis Nuclear Instrumentation caters to more than 30 countries ar the world, including Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Russia, South Korea, United Kingdom, United States of America, and countries in Western Europe.
Photonis has worked on innovative technologies, including fast reactors such as Phenix, Superphenix, and the Astrid project. The company continues to work not only on the Jules Horowitz Reactor (JHR) – a Materials Testing Reactor – and many other research reactors, but also in the fusion market with ITER and IFMIF-DONES. Photonis supports the specific needs of Small Modular Reactors (SMR) and Advanced Reactors to ensure their success for a sustainable energy future.
As part of its Quality Assurance Program and customer satisfaction drive, Photonis Nuclear Instrumentation is committed to maintaining certifications as per the following standards to ISO standards.
