Lead shielding refers to the use of lead to shield or protect people or objects from radiation. Because of its high density and high atomic number, lead can effectively fade certain kinds of radiation. Lead containers are designed for the storage and shipment of radioactive materials. In most of the cases, outer dimensions and appearance are almost same; the difference lies in the thickness of lead shielding.
Medi-Ray fabricates lead containers for radioactive pharmaceuticals, nuclear applications, radioactive source storage, and waste containers. All containers feature interlocking component designs that guarantee no radiation leakage and provide safety during handling and transport. From outside, these containers are plastics shelled, that protects you from physically touching lead, which is a toxic metal. Medi-Ray can design and manufacture these lead shielding containers in multiple sizes that can accommodate hundreds of lead wall thicknesses, cover designs, and locking mechanisms.
These lead shipping containers are manufactured from A36 or 44W carbon steel. All hardware used from heavy-duty hinges to locks is of the highest quality. Extreme care is taken in the surface preparation to all surfaces for the supply and application of a finish coat of paint to the desired color. All storage containers are available with your choice in lead shielding from 1/32″ to 2″ thick or more.
Medi-Ray offers “just-in-time” delivery schedules for its clients to reduce customer inventory costs and to deliver mutually economical delivery quantities. Medi-Ray maintains a safety stock of castings, components, and finished products to guarantee timely delivery.
Medi-Ray quality control procedures are refined and expanded to include inspection procedures stipulated by customers. Certification by Medi-Ray quality control personnel accompanies each shipment.
Radiation from equipment like x-rays, CT, MRI scanning and from radio pharmaceuticals are harmful if people are overexposed to them. Even if they are used to detect improper functioning of internal organs and to cure certain diseases, people around should be exposed to only permeable amounts of radiation. To regulate the intensity of radiations scattered by this equipment, they are shielded with lead.
Lead is the most malleable of all common metals, can be easily shaped / bent/cut and is resistant to corrosion. Due to its density, lead is the best and most affordable shielding product.
