A detector for measurement of the activity distribution of positron emitters in a catalyst reactor has been designed and built. The detector consists of two banks of each ten BGO scintillation crystals. The activity distribution is measured as a function of time and position along the reactor. The attainable position resolution along the reactor is 3 mm and the minimum sampling time for the measurement of an activity profile is 1 second. The detector has a high sensitivity and the flexibility to be used with catalyst reactors of different types and sizes
