Features and Benefits of Lead Bricks

Lead bricks are used in various shielding requirements, including x-ray radiation and nuclear shielding. However, they can also be used for radioactive isotope creation, ballast weights and counterbalances. Lead bricks are available in a variety of sizes, and in different design options to suit shielding and weight applications. Below are the features and benefits of lead bricks:

Key features

  • Lead bricks are cast out of 99.9% pure virgin, high quality lead.
  • They are commonly used for shielding in applications where lead sheet shielding is impractical or not available in sizes or thicknesses required.
  • Can be adapted for many different applications, in walls, bunkers, coves, glove-boxes, hot cells, partitions, nuclear shielding, transporting radioactive materials or as a ballast weight.
  • Available in a wide range of sizes, thicknesses and shapes and interlocking designs to suit your application.
  • Maximum protection against x-ray beta and gamma radiation with interlocking configurations that prevent radiation leakage through gaps. The interlocking configurations also provide a stable and a sturdier wall system to prevent it from falling.
  • They can be cut on site in any direction without losing the interlocking capability. A double row can also be stacked behind the first in a staggered pattern to prevent the loss of radiation effectively.
  • Machine finished lead bricks are also available.

Benefits

  • Lead bricks reduce exposure to harmful high energy radiation.
  • They create a safe and healthful environment.
  • They are flexible—Lead bricks can be easily erected, modified, disassembled and relocated in the field to create protective wall systems and cells to suit your application.
  • They are custom designed and manufactured in different sizes and weights according to customer specifications.

Lead Bricks for Effective Radiation Shielding

Lead bricks originate from the purest lead available and are popular for constructing lead walls in places where the need for radiation protection is high. Lead bricks are common in nuclear reactors to shield high intensity radiation produced in them.

Lead Bricks

Medi-RayTM provides lead bricks with interlocking features. The different types of lead bricks supplied by Medi-RayTM are:

Standard lead bricks

This is the basic type of rectangular lead brick. Medi-RayTM manufactures standard rectangular lead bricks of different sizes and thicknesses based on customer’s requirements.

Interlocking lead bricks

Interlocking lead bricks provide the highest level of radiation protection. They are used for building lead walls, and for fitting corners of lead walls and built using standard rectangular lead bricks.

Dura Block lead bricks are one of the types of interlocking lead bricks manufactured by Medi-RayTM. This brick can create a wall but cannot fit corners.

Lead barrier walls and caves

Medi-RayTM manufactures and pre-assembles custom lead walls according to the requirements of the customer. They can be directly installed in the area where radiation protection is needed.

Uses of lead bricks

  • Used in x-ray facilities
  • Defense industry
  • Nuclear power plants
  • Laboratories where radioactive experiments are performed
