Lead Shielding for Medical Equipment

All medical diagnostic devices that use radiation require that the device be placed in a shielding to protect the machine operator and others who may be nearby from the radiation. Lead is used to shield these radiation equipment which allow safe radiation imaging. Also, the containers of nuclear medicines and other equipment are shielded with lead to ensure safety of people around.

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

If you need lead bricks or any other type of radiation shielding product contact Medi-RayTM at 877-898-3003 today.
