The ISO Quality Management System is the backbone of our society, guaranteeing the safety and quality of products and services, facilitating international trade and improving the environment in which we live. In order for a business or company to improve organization the senior management must apply the seven quality principles of the ISO 9001 standards. The quality management principles are:
Engagement of People
Evidence-based decision making
These principles are guidelines that can help companies tackle some of the most demanding challenges of modern business. The ISO standards ensure that business operations are as efficient as possible, increase productivity and help companies access new markets. Many businesses are not only able to cut costs, and reduce their impact on the environment, but are also able to increase customer satisfaction.
When businesses choose to conform to the ISO standards for their products and services consumers can have confidence that the products they purchase are safe, reliable and of good quality. Understanding the needs of existing and future customers is vital in aligning organizational objectives with customer needs and expectations. The ISO standards allow companies to meet customer requirements, create and manage customer relationships, and exceed customer expectations.

In order to avoid potential health hazards from harmful radiation it is important to have proper radiation protection. Medi-RayTM manufactures and supplies different types of radiation shielding products, such as, lead sheets, lead plates, lead containers, lead bricks etc. Contact Medi-RayTM for custom designed products for your radiation shielding needs.
Radiation shielding refers to the use of a material or device to protect against ionizing radiation. Lead is a primary metal for Radiation Shielding. This Video discusses the different types of lead shielding materials.
When it comes to providing radiation shielding from every day used devices such as medical / X-ray and airport detection devices the best choice is using lead as shielding material. Lead has proven to be the most economic and effective material for protecting humans from radiation producing devices.
Radiation shielding is the use of material or devices that protect against ionizing radiation. Lead is a primary metal for radiation shielding. This slide discusses the different types of lead shielding materials.
Employees who work in x-ray rooms and nuclear industries run a high risk of incurring diseases like cancer due to repeated exposure to radiation. To avoid such fatalities, several lead products act as barriers to shield radiation and protect people working with or around the radiation scattering equipment.
Lead is a dense metal with a high atomic number and it can shield against all types of harmful radiation x-rays, alpha-rays, and gamma rays. When you visit a medical facility, you can see that the x-ray technician moves behind a lead wall. You may wonder why the patient is not provided with the shielding material. This is because the patient may be exposed to x-ray radiation once or twice a year but the technician is exposed to the radiations repeatedly, maybe for several years because it is his job occupation.
Industries that deal with radiation also need to protect equipment from radiation. The equipment is shielded with lead casing or lead walls to control the intensity of radiation. Radioactive materials are stored in lead containers and radioactive waste is disposed of in lead bins. Lead containers are also used to transport radioactive materials. The lead transportation containers are specially designed to avoid any breakage or leakage during transportation.
Medi-Ray is a leader in the manufacture of radiation shielding products. They have been developing lead radiation shielding components since 1970. If you need radiation shielding products for your industry, contact Medi-Ray at 877-898-3003.
The various forms of lead like lead sheets, lead plates, lead bricks, lead containers, lead glass, lead wool that are used for radiation shielding are manufactured by Medi-rayTM Inc. If you need any radiation shielding products call them at 877.898.3003 for product quotes.
In everyday life we may come across several instances where radiation is used. For example, in the medical industry x-ray imaging helps identify broken bones and perform other diagnostic tests. The radiation is useful but overexposure is a serious health risk. To avoid overexposure to radiation, radiation scattering equipment is shielded with lead.
Medi-Ray is the industry leader in the manufacture of radiation shielding products. Radiation shielding products manufactured by Medi-Ray include lead plates, lead bricks, sheet lead, lead glass, lead wool, syringe shields, x-ray shields, nuclear medicine accessories, lead castings, lead containers for shipping and many more.
Where are radiation shielding products used?
Radiation shielding products are used in a wide variety of industries:
Medical industry: x-ray equipment, thyroid equipment etc.
In airport detection devices
In defense industry
Nuclear power industries
Why is lead used as a radiation shielding product?
Lead is fairly inexpensive
Can be easily bent and manipulated
It is corrosion resistant
Lead is extremely versatile, malleable and easy to work with
It can be shaped in any to fit the rooms , equipment and even deep corners
Due to its high atomic number, lead can efficiently resist harmful radiation
Lead is highly stable metal
