Nuclear research establishments use nuclear reactors or cyclotrons to study or create radioactive materials. Tungsten alloy is used in research activities as collimators (devices which guide or focus beams of radiation) or containers for radioactive isotopes. Tungsten alloy is ideal for shielding against both X- and Gamma radiation. The very high density of tungsten alloy shielding (more than 60% denser than lead) allows a reduction in the physical size of tungsten alloy shielding components, without compromising the effectiveness of the shielding characteristics.
Tungsten Alloy Plasma Accelerator Shielding
As radiation becomes a problem. To protect body from radiation is very important. Radiation shielding for plasma accelerator is quite necessary. Depending on heaviest density but smallest capacity, tungsten alloy material is more and more popular be used for making radiation shielding to protect body from plasma accelerator radiation. Compared with lead, tungsten alloy shielding is much smaller but with heavier density, which is very helpful for high radiation absorption. It is more than 60% denser than lead, meanwhile, it has excellent machinability, good corrosion resistance. The most important thing is that, tungsten material is environment-friendly.
Whether you need to protect sensitive electronic equipment or delicate human tissue, the energy-absorbing properties of tungsten alloys make them exceptional choices for radiation shielding applications, in industrial settings such as ,shielding block,radioactive source containers, nuclear shielding wall etc.
