Tungsten Alloy Radiation Shielding
Tungsten heavy alloy shielding is used
in applications such as Radioactive
source containers, Gamma radiography
shields, Shielding block, Xray
collimators, Nuclear shielding wall etc.
Tungsten Medical Radiation Shielding
Tungsten heavy alloy medical radiation shielding is used in applications
such as collimator, nuclear shielding, beamstop, PET syringe shield, vial shield,
isotope container, FDG container, multi leaf collimator etc.
Why is radiation protection important?
Radiation is a very important part of our modern lives. Without it we
would not have been able to make the advances in diagnostic imaging
and medicine that we have today.
Radiation is part of everyday life both in an industrial setting and of
If an individual working near a source of radiation is not protected
by radiation shielding then there is the potential to cause damage to
If an individual is regularly exposed to high levels of radiation they
will have a significant increased likelihood of contracting tumours and
Radiation sickness is also referred to as radiation poisoning and
is known to cause the following symptoms:
Nausea and vomiting
Weakness, fatigue, exhaustion, fainting
Inflammation of exposed areas (redness, tenderness, swelling,
Ulceration of the oral mucosa
Vomiting of blood
Bleeding from the nose, mouth, gums, and rectum
Sloughing of skin
Open sores on the skin
Why Use Tungsten Alloy Radiation Cap?
Compared to traditional radiation shielding materials such as
lead and boron carbide, tungsten alloy radiation cap provide
excellent density with small capacity.
Tungsten alloy radiation
shielding material could be
made with thinner thickness
but high absorption of
radiation in high density.
