The Petten Neutron Radiography Services, representing the joint Neutron Radiography (NR) services of the ECN and JRC at Petten, have undertaken a feasibility study of further upgrading of the present HB-8 NR facility at the High Flux Reactor (HFR) for commercial applications. This paper reviews the present HFR HB-8 NR facility and the results of the study. A two step upgrading of the NR facility has been considered: firstly optimisation of the present system, and then a redesign of the components for guiding and conditioning the neutron beam, including a dedicated NR laboratory outside the HFR containment building.
