Sharps Enclosure Range
Radi-tech offer a range of lead shielded enclosures for housing sharps bins. The range share common properties throughout and vary only in size and therefore the sharps bin(s) they can accommodate. Moreover positioning plates are available which can allow a sharps enclosure to be used with a variety of different sharps bins.
All enclosures in the range feature a Needle Cover, a small piece of shielding which usually rotates unveiling a hole through the principle shielding where the sharps are deposited. This allows for easy, almost effortless use of the enclosure while applying ALARP for radiation dose.
When the time comes to change the sharps bin the enclosure can be opened with ease. The grab handles can be used to slide the shielded lid on the full extension sliders, revealing the sharps bin contained. The bin can then be lifted out and a new one installed.
The lead thickness of the bins can be varied from 3mm (ideally suited to SPECT applications) in 1mm increments with most models capable of housing 50mm of lead for high activity PET applications.
