Hundreds of cement factories use online bulk material analyzers to improve their quality control for both raw material and kiln feed, and reduce their variability. The most used technology for online analysis is Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis (PGNAA), with 252Cf as the neutron source. Cost and short half-life of the 252Cf neutron sources are the main problems in cement industry. Therefore, a simulation study has been done to develop the setup geometry and investigate the feasibility of using 241Am-9Be neutron source as an alternative option. Utilizing 241Am-9Be neutron source resolves the need of system periodic calibration and concern about the cost of 252Cf neutron source renewing.
