a long dormant period, the batteries will lose
some of their charge. Reset your 3440 and 4640
battery life to peak life at 190 hours and clear
the elapse time back to zero.
If you are unsure of how to reset the
battery life refer to our FAQ page and follow
the steps found there.
Then plug the gauge into the charger and
allow charging overnight (or at least 8 hours). This will give the batteries top charge and will avoid the
battery low indicators or worse, it just won’t
turn on, during the first trip out.
excellent way to start the spring is to take
standard counts at the shop.
Make sure that no other nuclear gauge is
within 25 feet of the gauge standardizing.
This is very important.
Otherwise, the counts will be off.
Take up to five standard counts, making
sure you save the counts, reloading the memory
with fresh standards should help increase
these new counts with the last counts preformed.
They should be within ASTM standards for
accurate test results.

the bottom of the gauge needs to be cleaned.
Make sure nothing is stuck to the bottom
and that the source rod moves freely.
Remove the four base plate screws and the
sliding block, and clean thoroughly.
This should help the rod move smoothly.
Do this whenever the rod becomes too
stiff to work properly. Follow your operators’
manual for exact procedures for your gauge.

is a popular time for gauge calibrations, but
not the only time.
As your gauge calibrations come due, NETS
will continue to ensure your nuke gauge will
come back looking and working its best.
During the calibration process, we clean
and occasionally paint the topshells to look
almost new. We clean and lubricate the bottom assembly and lube the
source rod shaft so the rod works easily.
We check the voltage on your batteries
and their ability to take a charge.
We inspect and adjust the electronics
(and we have technicians with electronics
we employ a 3 block system utilizing a low, med
and high-density blocks and a high moisture
block as well.
A “statement of traceability “
regarding these blocks accuracy is including
within the calibration report.
A gauge safety checklist and a leak test
