Tungsten Alloy Radiation Shield of product Description
Tungsten Alloy Radiation Shield is a best choice for radiation shielding applications, which could be used in both medical fields and industrial areas. Compared to traditional radiation shielding materials, such as lead, it provides excellent properties. High-density alloy can provide the same energy absorption as lead using 1/3 less material. People are taking advantage of tungsten alloy's reliable radiation shielding properties.
Tungsten Medical Radiation Shielding
Let's could offer tungsten alloy radiation shield, which is used for radioactive source containers, gamma radiography, X-ray shields and industrial instrumentation. Tungsten shielding is also serving as collimators and radiation shielding in cancer therapy, as well as syringe protection for radioactive injections. We usually offer tungsten alloy radiation shielding as per the following standard. Besides, we could also design and make special size based on different properties:.
Tungsten Alloy Radiation Shield of Application
HA170 is the most ductile and readily machinable grade. Common application areas include counterbalancing weights for the aviation and aerospace industries, crankshaft and auto racing car, bucking bars for rivet setting, and radiation shielding.
HA175 is commonly used to produce chatter-resistant boring bars and tool shanks as well as radiation shielding components.
HA180 is often applied where size is a factor in the placement of balance or ballast weights. It should be typically of parts with small volume but heavy density. Other applications include radiation shields and collimators of x-ray or gamma ray beams.
The densest of the Ni-Fe binder alloys with tungsten, and is the preferred grade for radiation shielding in the medical imaging industry.
Adding copper as a substitute for iron in the binder phase, as there is requirement for nonmagnetic working environment and ideal choice for nonmagnetic radiation shielding.
Much denser than HA170C, can be used in large scale shielding in nonmagnetic working environment.
Tungsten Industrial Radiation Shielding
Tungsten shielding is used in research activities as collimators (devices which guide or focus beams of radiation) or containers for radioactive isotopes. Nuclear research use nuclear reactors or cyclotrons to study or create radioactive materials. Tungsten alloy radiation shielding is ideal for radiation protection for both X-ray and Gamma-ray. High density of it is more than 60% denser than lead, which allows a reduction in the physical size of shielding components without compromising its shielding ability.
Tungsten alloy radiation shielding is usually used in the following applications:
Non Destructive Testing (NDT) tungsten radiation shielding
NDT methods may rely upon use of electromagnetic radiation, sound, and inherent properties of materials to examine samples, which includes some kinds of microscopy to examine external surfaces in detail. Although sample preparation techniques for metallographic, optical microscopy and electron microscopy are generally destructive as the surfaces must be made smooth through polishing or the sample must be electron transparent in thickness. The inside of a sample can be examined with penetrating electromagnetic radiation, such as X-rays or 3D X-rays for volumetric inspection. Tungsten alloy radiation shielding could be used for radiation protection from the harm radiation.
