Tungsten Alloy Radiation Shielding

Time:2015-08-24 22:37     Author: admin

 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, etc. Lead and
steel are the traditional protection materials, but tungsten alloy radiation shielding is no doubt 
the best solution.Excellent radiation-absorption, twice the density of lead and good physical 
resistance is main reasons to use tungsten alloy radiation shielding.

Experts find that radiation exposure could be reduced by maxing shielding. The density of 
Tungsten Alloy Radiation Shielding material is related to its radiation stopping ability. 
Higher density means better stopping and absorbing radiation ray. Due to a higher 
density than most other materials, tungsten radiation shielding has a much higher ability 
of absorbing and stopping almost rays than others metals such as the traditional 
radiation shielding - lead. Tungsten radiation shielding greater linear attenuation of gamma
radiations means that less is required for equal shielding. Alternatively equal amounts
of tungsten shielding provide diminished exposure risks than equivalent lead.

Tungsten heavy alloy is the right material for radiation protection, as its combination of 
radiographic density (more than 60% denser than lead), machinability, good corrosion
resistance, high radiation absorption (superior to lead and steel), simplified life cycle 
and high strength. Tungsten radiation shielding can provide the same degree of protection
as lead whilst significantly reducing the overall volume and thickness of shields and 
containers. Besides, compared with lead or depleted uranium (DU), tungsten radiation 
shielding is more friendship for the environments both lead and DU for it is no any toxic.
