Tungsten Radiation Shielding Application

tungsten alloy radiation shielding
Tungsten alloy is a best choices for tungsten radiation shielding application, in both medical and industrial settings. Tungsten alloy radiation shielding provide excellent alternative for traditional radiation shielding materials. High-density tungsten alloy radiation shielding 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.

Chinatungsten tungsten alloy radiation shielding is used for radioactive source containers, gamma radiography, shields, and industrial instrumentation. Tungsten alloy radiation shielding application is also serving as collimators and radiation shielding in cancer therapy, as well as syringe protection for radioactive injections.

Tungsten alloy radiation shielding gives people best protection from the harmful radiation. Meet to the AMS 21014 and ASTM B777 material standard, we can offer tungsten alloy radiation shielding with finished machining by CNC according to clients drawings.

Why Use Tungsten Alloy Radiation Shielding?

tungsten alloy radiation shielding
Compared to traditional radiation shielding materials such as lead and boron carbide, tungsten alloy provide excellent density with small capacity. With the same weight, high-density alloy can provide the same energy absorption as lead using 1/3 less space.

While designing, shielding is calculated according to requirements of shield to abate the multiple shielding materials' thickness.
Formula: K=e0.693 d / △1/2
K: Shield weakened multiple
△ 1/2: The shielding material of the half-value layer values
d: Shielding thickness, with the half-value layer thickness of their units, you need to half-value layer thickness of the quality of translation into the thickness of the material, divided by the density of the material can be obtained.
