T-Flex® bottle shields
NPO’s T-Flex products are ideals for applications that require custom moldable shapes along with flexibility. Custom sized bottle shields are also ideal for resin sampling at nuclear power plants worldwide.
NPO can customize shielding for all your radioactive solutions in the laboratory, these include vials, bottles and beakers. By combining silicone with attenuating metals, including tungsten, extremity dose is reduced.
View liquid levels inside beaker during sample processing with an observation window. Heat is directly transferred from hot plate to beaker with the shield’s open bottom design. The T-Flex® material is tested to 177°C. Custom higher temperature compatible materials are in development.
Store highly radioactive vials inside a customizable vial shield with available matching top shield. Also available with a integrated strap for transportation and protected storage of vials within a facility.
Those same bottle shields can then be incorporated into a customized shielded suitcase solution, similar to the suitcases (images on left) used by one of our nuclear power plant customers in France.
The customer requested a package of shielding products that would fit within their custom built suitcases. They would then use the suitcases to wheel radioactive materials from the plant to the on-site laboratory.
Shielded storage safes
Eichrom/NPO introduces a new line of laboratory grade safes and cabinets for the storage of radioactive materials. These units are purpose built for the nuclear industry with customizable amounts of shielding materials surrounding an interior storage area. The units are steel inside and out and then coated so there is no exposed lead. The units are designed to be weather resistant to allow for outdoor usage. Door areas are sealed with a gasket to minimize any potential spread of radioactive materials.
