Lead-Lined Preparation Enclosure Base Cabinet vs. Lead-Lined Radioisotope Storage Cabinet

Radiation shielding products often makes use of metallic lead and lead compounds. Higher lead densities are required for this and other uses that call for such material. Lead is often utilized as a barrier for radioactive material storage containers. Remote control robots are used in hospitals, medical institutions, and labs wherever hazardous, radioactive materials are handled to limit the chance of exposure significantly. The use of lead foil or sheet as a barrier is self-evident.

Lead-Lined Preparation Enclosure Base Cabinet 

  • To support the lead-lined preparation enclosure • Key-locked full-height doors
  • Adjustable, heavy-duty shelf

The lead-lined preparation enclosure is meant to be supported by this cabinet. A 100-pound-capable shelf is accessible behind full-height, overlapping double doors secured by a key lock. The cabinet may be used for both rotting and storage purposes.

  • It is 36.5 inches long by 24 inches wide, and it stands 36.5 inches tall (92.7 centimeters). Its lead shielding is either.25 inches (6.4 centimeters) or 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) thick on all six sides.
  • There are a total of twelve (12) key-locked drawers in this lead-lined radioisotope storage cabinet, making it ideal for storing radioactive materials while limiting exposure to workers.

Lead-Lined Radioisotope Storage Cabinet

To keep radioactive items secure, the Radioisotope Storage Cabinet was created. It has a total of 12 key-locked compartments. Each drawer may be removed for cleaning or disinfection. The contents are identified via a card slot.

  • It comes with a standard top, but there are also other tops that can be used with this cabinet.
  • Sharps port with lead cover for B-D Guardian and Winfield Sharps containers or up to three storage wells with lead lined coverings.
  • Dimensions: 30.5″ wide x 24″ deep x 36.5″ high (77.5 x 61 x 92.7 cm)
  • Lead shielding on all six sides is.25″ (.64 cm) thick,.5″ (1.3 cm) thick, or 1″ (2.5 cm) thick.
  • Six inches wide by 11.88 inches deep by four inches high, the I.D. of the drawers is 15.2 inches wide by 30.2 inches deep by 11.4 inches high, and the drawers are key-locked.
  • Weight: 1069 lb (486 kg) for 244-110, 1415 lb (642 kg) for 244-111, and 2558 lb (1160 kg) for 244-112 (with powder coat).

Final Thoughts

Lead and lead alloys are great choices as radiation shielding materials. One of the best things about this material is how simple and straightforward it is to deal with. Lead is an excellent shielding material for almost every situation. People who operate with or near radiation benefit from lead’s ability to provide a sense of safety.
