Nuclear Shields manufactures lead-lined storage cabinets and lead-lined containers for radioactive sources. These cabinets can be used for various applications and can be custom made to your dimensions, amount of drawers and more.
How to store radioactive materials
Storage of radioactive materials requires the use of radiation shielding. The radioactivity can be shielded by placing the radioactive materials into a shielded containment such as a lead shielded cabinet, lead shielded safe or a lead shielded container. Nuclear Shields is a radiation shielding manufacturer and designs shielding solutions for storing radioactive materials. Our lead-lined cabinets can be used to store radioactive materials used in nuclear medicine, non-destructive testing, nuclear energy and many other sectors.
Radioactive sources in gamma radiography
Gamma radiography is a non-destructive testing method to test the quality of various components. Gamma rays and x-rays are use to analyse the manufactured components. So called radiographic exposure devices are used to perform this analysis. The Sentinel Delta 880 is an example of a gamma exposure device used to test welds of pipes for example. These devices need to be safely stored in order to meet ALARA safety recommendations.
Lead-lined safes for radiographic exposure devices
Nuclear Shields manufactures small and modular lead-lined storage safes for radioactive sources
used in radiographic testing. Gamma source projectors such as the Sentinel Delta 880 from QSA Global can be safely stored inside these lead shielded safes to meet ALARA safety recommendations.
