Moveable In-Core Detectors (MIC) 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.

Features and Benefits
  • 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
