Additional plant has been commissioned at the Springfields Works of BNFL to obtain increased production of uranium tetrafluoride. A programme of investigational work was undertaken during production to improve our understanding of the process. This paper describes some of the radiometric techniques used in the project, including passive gamma and neutron measurements and experiments using radioactive tracers.
