Original Press Release

MarShield Announces New Line of Table-Top Radiations Shields and L- Block Radiation Shields

Press release date: October 30, 2012

MarShield is proud to present their new Line of Table-Top Radiations shields and L- Block Radiation Shields.

Designed for receiving and preparing unit doses of high-energy radionuclides, the L-Block Shields provide a choice of 1.5" or 2" thick lead shielding in front, and 1" thick lead in the base, while the Tabletop Shield provides protection while working with mid to low-energy beta and gamma radioactive materials.

For Beta and Gamma Radiation
This Tabletop Shield provides protection while working with mid to low-energy beta and gamma radioactive materials. The shield is designed to resist tipping and incorporate shielding overlap to eliminate radiation streaming. The entire interior work surface is one piece stainless steel for easy clean up and decontamination. The base of the work surface is designed with a spill proof lip for fast, contained clean up.

The front wall of the shield is constructed of .5" (1.2 cm) thick lead and completely encased with stainless steel on the work surface side and powder-coated cast aluminum on the technologist side.  A lead glass window (2 mm LE) and a Plexiglas® panel are included. This shielding combination attenuates gamma and beta radiation, and errant bremsstrahlung, with unimpaired viewing of the work area. An optional 2 mm LE lead glass window is available to achieve 4.0 mm lead equivalency.

Features
Optional side and bottom shields offer additional protection. Manufactured to be durable, the Beta/Gamma Tabletop Shield is framed in cast aluminum with a powder-coat finish.
• Shields both Beta and Gamma Radiation
• Seamless Stainless Steel work area for easy cleaning and decontamination
• Work surface is designed with a spill proof lip for fast, contained clean up
