Tungsten gamma shielding advantages
The very high density of tungsten gamma shielding allows a reduction in the physical size of shielding components, without compromising their rigidity or the effectiveness of the shielding characteristics. Compared to traditional radiation shielding materials, tungsten gamma shielding provides excellent value. A high-density tungsten alloy can provide the same energy absorption as lead using 1/3 less material! Unlike lead, you'll also reduce administration costs by eliminating the need to obtain special licensing—it's not required. Clients all across the globe are taking advantage of tungsten alloy's reliable radiation shielding properties.
Tungsten gamma shielding applications
Gamma rays are used in medicine to kill and treat certain types of cancers and tumors. But gamma rays can harm other cells in our body at the same time. So we need tungsten gamma shielding to control gamma rays.
We also use gamma rays to examine metallic castings or welds in oil pipelines for weak points. In industry, gamma rays are used for detecting internal defects in metal castings and in welded structures too. In these situations, we need tungsten gamma shielding to protect our body from gamma rays' harm.
