Bromine-82 for technical use

Bromine-82 is used by specialised companies in Denmark as a tracer for leak location in closed hot-water installations.

The isotope is produced by neutron irradiation of Ammonium bromide (NH4Br) and is distributed to costumers either as powder in small sealed water soluble PVA-plastic bags or as a water solution in 10 ml vials.

The isotope is delivered once a week depending on the availability of neutron irradiation capacity at different research reactors in Europe.

An updated delivery plan of Br-82 can be found “here”.

For availability and prices please contact Acting Head of Division Jens-Peter Lynov or Henrik Prip on the Bromine-82 user-phone: +45 2534 0482
