Enviable track record of accuracy, reliability, & long-life
Moveable In-Core Detectors (MIC) for PWR Applications
GE offers the Reuter Stokes moveable in-core (MIC) sensor, which is used in pressurized water reactors to map the thermal neutron flux. With more than 35 years of in-core operational experience, our MIC has an enviable track record of accuracy, reliability, and long life.
- Superior insulation resistance at high temperatures, providing minimal signal leakage and permitting use over a wide flux/temperature range
- Separate sealing of detector assembly and cable assembly, eliminating signal variation at temperature due to gas expansion and migration
- Design details and proprietary methods of processing ensure high leakage resistance over a long detector lifetime
- Carefully matched, machined and bonded components, minimizing the possibility of detector failure resulting from insertion and withdrawal
