As I recall, 1.5 mrem / hr was cause for an alarm at K-state, where I worked last summer.

The best susstained rate of 60 seconds I ever had with my fusor, ever, was about 1-1.5 mrem/hr. This converted to about 130,000 neuts per second in my system and with my particular setup. It was gratifying to see the three main instruments I then had agree to +/- .2mrem at that level.

Lots of old posts on neutron counting exist here.
