Tungsten syringe shieldings

Tungsten syringe shieldings


In order to comply with the principles of radiation protection, any exposure to radiation has to be kept as low as possible, taking into account the technical and organisational possibilities.

The frequent use of syringe shieldings at the application of radiopharmaceuticals significantly reduces the radiation exposure, especially the partial body dose of the hands, without high costs.

β-Syringe shieldings

Apart from the γ-syringe shieldings we also have plexiglass syrings shieldings for ß-emitting nuclides, e.g. for the nuclides of radiosynoviorthesis or radioimmune therapy.

Radiation protection in hot cell

For standard radiation protection equipment of a hot cell we can deliver the following equipments:

Laboratory work bench
The work bench consists of a stable steel frame construction to carry heavy objects (up to 850 kg/m²), e.g. lead shielding, Tc-generators ..., etc. In accordance with the standards for working with unsealed radioactive materials, the stainless steel table plate is provided with a raised profile edge (8 mm) on all sides.
Lead shielding
For body protection, a U-formed or completely closed lead castle is built up on the work bench. Protected by the shielding, e.g. radiopharmaceuticals can be prepared and drawn up in this way. The lead shielding consists of lead components according to DIN 25407, e.g. with 50 mm shielding capacity. The lead shielding can be expanded by a lead glass window to be mounted.
system Von Gahlen

Closed lead shielding with mounted lead glass window (system Von Gahlen, NL)

system Wälischmiller

U-formed lead shielding with mounted lead glass window (system Wälischmiller, D)

The safe guarantees an access-protected, shielded storage of radiopharmaceuticals and check/test sources. Safes are available in several dimensions and with several shielding capacities. They can be delivered as a cupboard or as a sliding safe.
Shielded container for radioactive waste
Radioactive waste has to be collected separately. For protection of the personnel, the waste collection container has to be shielded.
Syringe carrying case
For transport of prepared syringes with radiopharmaceuticals, as desired in several sizes and with several shielding capacities (3, 6 mm Pb)

Warning plates
To mark the control area as a stamped aluminium plate or of plastic (150 x 200 mm). Caption: ”Control Area Radioactive“ with radiation warning symbol.
