The Benefits of Lead Containers and Cabinets to store Radioactive Materials

Nuclear Shields makes lead cabinets and containers in various sizes, lead thicknesses, and materials used in nuclear power plants. Lead vial pigs, mobile lead containers with a trolley for simple movement, and lead containers with a stainless steel casing and locks for longer-term storage or decomposition are all included in the basic range of lead containers. 

Nuclear material may be stored and transported in lead storage containers, which are made of lead. The standard exterior and interior finishing are coated lead, ensuring that people are not exposed to lead throughout the construction process. 

It is also possible to have a stainless steel coating applied to the housing to make it stronger. Handles may be added to the lead containers to allow for a variety of different handling ways.

When lifting the container with a crane, lifting eyes may be installed on the lid and base of the container. Padlocks may be fitted to the container to keep the radioactive material safe while the key is not present.

Lead storage containers and cabinets

Radioactive materials may be stored in lead storage cabinets, which are made of lead. If you make radiopharmaceuticals, you will take dosages from a vial into a syringe while protecting your hands with a tungsten shield. 

The radioactive vial may be kept in a lead storage container or a tungsten vial shield after the dosage has been drawn into the syringe. A lead glass viewing window may be included in tungsten vial shields to increase the sight of the contents. 

Lead storage containers allow adding one or more padlocks to store radioactive material with keys while in storage properly.

Lead transport containers

Nuclear Shields is a company that makes lead shipping containers for the transportation of nuclear materials. One of the applications for which these containers may be created is the shipment of syringes containing F-18 radiopharmaceutical agents. Many transport containers may be categorized as shipping containers, including type A and type B containers. These classes will outline the many applications for which these lead shipping containers may be employed.

Lead Cabinets and Container Use

Applications for lead shielded containers include:

  • The storage of radioactive material.
  • The transportation of radioactive material.
  • The storage of PET radionuclides (such as fluor-18).
  • The manufacture of radiopharmaceuticals.
  • The use of vial pigs for PET and other radionuclides.

Small and modular, these lead-lined safes are ideal for storing radioactive substances.

Radiopharmaceuticals, gamma source projectors, and other radioactive sources may all be stored in our lead-lined cabinets and safes.

Alternatively, you might install a single lead-protected safe in your room or build up a data storage configuration by linking many lead shielded data storage safes. Because of the modular architecture, you may quickly increase the number of radioactive sources you can store. The lead-lined storage safes may be piled on top of one another and linked together.
