Tungsten alloy radiation shielding equipment 

With rapid development of medical science, more and more tungsten alloy radiation shielding equipment are used in our lives
Medical instruments X-ray and nuclear power stations have become wide spread and are now affecting all our lives

It is essential that people paid more attention to radiation and even more important for the institutions to protect public from the radiation exposure and to make sure to protect every radiation source of X-ray radiation, gamma radiation (energetic electromagnetic radiation), radiation of alpha particles (helium atoms) beta particles (electrons) and cosmic radiation, and many more


In order to protect patients, doctors, nurses and other people who may be exposed to radiation, sources of the radiation must be safely separated and shielded


It is crucial that holding and delivery instruments for radioactive materials would keep the radiation levels low enough, not to create harmful effects of ionizing radiation such as breast cancer, skin cancer and many more

Lead and steel are the traditional protection materials, but tungsten alloy radiation shielding is without a doubt the best solution


Excellent radiation-absorption, twice the density of lead and good physical resistance are main reasons to use tungsten alloy radiation shielding


Applications of tungsten radiation shielding equipment:

The usage of tungsten heavy alloy in radiation protection is not subject to NRC, EPA, or special OSHA regulations, so it has been widely used in nuclear medicine as collimator, isotope container, cancer treatment source holder, and many more
