Photo multiplier tubes are susceptible to external magnetic field effects that can readily interfere with performance so often need highly effective shielding.
Magnetic Shields has vast experience with the technical challenges that accompany designing shielding solutions for such sensitive equipment.

Our Service

Our design team manufacture a vast range of glass photomultiplier tubes and scintillation tube shields. Through our many years’ experience we understand the importance of the design of such shields to take into account the tapered neck sections.

These sections, if not approached correctly are potential weak spots in field attenuation. Magnetic Shields are able to maximise the amount of shielding in these areas. Photomultiplers are designed to detect very small events and to maintain their measuring accuracy, the homogeneity of the shielding is critical.

Magnetic shields regularly produces photomultiplier and scintillator shields in a range of diameters from 15mm to 400mm with finishes from standard grained finish and fine polished finish to spray painted finish in quantities from single orders to large volume production.
