Lead lined storage and waste containers come in many different shapes and sizes, and are composed of many different outer materials, the most common, being steel.
These containers are used most commonly for the storage, and or disposal of materials that have been contaminated with low-level energy gamma radiation. This includes protection from contaminated syringes, as well as many other nuclides used within the field of Nuclear Medicine.
The lead lined container comes with many benefits to individuals, as well as their surrounding environments. For example, they reduce the risk of accident or unnecessary radiation exposure to workers or the general public, and they reduce costly storage and maintenance. In addition, these containers are equipped with disposable plastic liners to allow the rapid and efficient transfer of radioactive contents.
Here at Mediray, we emphasize the use of Lead lined storage and waste containers to minimize exposure to radiation, while maintaining a clean and safe environment.
