Fortress Broad Spectrum Radiation Shielding
Fortress shielding provides radiation protection from high energy sources such as Co-60, Cs-137 and Ir-192. This range of lead-free shielding materials utilizes Tungsten and Bismuth as non-toxic replacements for lead. Fortress shielding is most often used in Industrial, Nuclear and NDT settings where high energy gamma radiation occurs. Also commonly used to protect against gamma streaming seen in electron accelerator applications and radio isotopes handled in nuclear medicine.
Half Layer Values of Nuclear Isotope Radiation Shielding Materials
Isotopes: Iridium 192, Cesium 137, Cobalt 60. For Tungsten Silicone, Bismuth Silicone, Tungsten Composite, and Lead.
Reinforced, grommeted panels can be hung from industrial tracks or wall mounted to create a custom shielding wall. Flame-resistant shielding loaded with Tungsten or Bismuth.
Prevent gamma streaming from Cs-137 and Co-60 in nuclear environment. Shield GM flame sensors during NDT inspections. Also used in electron accelerator applications.
Reinforced panels are made from silicone loaded with Bismuth or Tungsten. Available per custom dimensions. Can be cut to size on site to fit radiation shielding requirements.
Rigid panels of flame resistant plastic (UL94 approved) encase our Tungsten composite shielding. The laminated panels are easy to mount using mechanical fasteners.
Flexible radiation shielding lined with 3M pressure sensitive adhesive for easy application to equipment. Made from lead-free tungsten composite. Just cut to size, peel & stick.
We stock the widest range of lead-free radiation shielding in the world. Over 40 types of material are available in stock in our Houston facility. Custom orders are also available.
Tungsten composite shielding is flexible and manufactured from non-toxic materials. Approximately twice the thickness of lead sheet with similar weight.
We custom fabricate shielding devices and assemblies from our tungsten composites and high density alloys. Contact us to discuss your needs and we will propose a solution.
Plywood laminated with Tungsten composite is a good solution for special projects, temporary wall shielding and other radiation shielding needs.
