RADIATION DETECTION & SHIELDING SOLUTIONS
PROTECT, DETECT & MEASURE THE UNSEEN
Highly flexible strips. These ribbons can be spiral wrapped around components for a quick “hot spot” solution. Standard length is 8 feet and material can be easily cut in the field using typical cutting tools
Ideal for small bore pipe applications. Engineered to be within weight limitations while maximizing attenuation. Cinch straps are include for each section of pipe shielding.
Designed to provide economical and ergonomic solutions for shielding sources below. Each tile combines the attenuation properties of T-Flex® with the durability of a work mat. They also can be cut for in field adjustments. The floor shielding features a non-slip diamond tread surface
Magnetic tiles cling to any carbon steel surface allowing for a variety of applications. Each tiles installs easily and quickly and is removed by pulling a D-ring. They are available with magnets strong enough for use under RX head.
An alternative to lead blankets, similar attenuation characteristics without the lead hazard. T-Flex Blankets can be cut in the field using a utility knife, but can stand up to normal wear and tear. Increased flexibility over a standard lead blanket allows for wrapping shielding closer to the source and easier handling characteristics.
The non-toxic T-Flex® Beaker and Vial Shields provide a convenient method of reducing extremity dose when using radioactive solutions in laboratory environments. Transport and store beakers and vials either on an individual basis or all together in a rolling case.
The silicone base for T-Flex allows for complex and custom shapes. Custom molded shapes allows the shielding to get nearest to the source as possible and be more effective at reducing the overall dose.
T-Flex® dry cask composite shielding is designed to tackle both neutron and gamma sources associated with dry cask operations. T-Flex is an excellent gamma and neutron attenuator and this shielding is supplemented by an additional neutron attenuator such a borated polyethylene.
Gamma Attenuation by type of meterial
The physics of gamma radiation shielding and the attenuating impact of available shielding materials can be distilled down to “mass-in-the-path”. For gamma energies approaching Cobalt-60 (1.25 MeV), achieving 50% attenuation or half-value-layer (hvl) will have very similar weights per unit area. What will vary is the thickness of the material necessary to achieve the desired attenuation.
Lead walls and panels are used for general area shielding and to create low dose waiting areas. NPO’s custom shield booths also are used to reduce background and count times with existing PCM, frisker, and hand/foot monitors. These booth structures, comprised of lead sheets encased in steel, provide the most economical and best attenuating upgrade of your existing monitors.
