Workstation for the breakdown of airborne radioisotopes coming from the manipulation of the volatile liquids or gas substances.
Completely made of 1.5 mm thick AISI 304 stainless steel with Scotch-BriteTM finish. Designed in accordance with the current Radioprotection standards. The frame is supported on feet that can be levelled and adjusted in height with a polyamide-supporting base.
The shielding is made of lead with a thickness of 50 mm and is found in:
The work area is entirely made of AISI 316L stainless steel. All the joints are made using the “arc” welding technique and are cut and polished in an inert gas atmosphere.
The entire structure is thus stiffened by these sheet steel boxes. The worktop has raised borders to retain any leakage of contaminating liquids. A connection hole to the lower technical compartment is available on the worktop. This connection can be used as a passage for the capillary tubes and to discharge waste materials by inserting a special container for waste in the lower technical compartment (perpendicular to it). Furthermore, it can be used as a passage for the radioactive fluids with a connection from the floor by means of a lead duct, with 30 mm thickness (optional, upon customers request).
Connections for the technical gases and electric sockets are available in the work area.
Two precision pressure gauges for the continuous measurement of the filter obstruction (absolute filter and active charcoal filters) and the switch to turn on the internal lights and the controls for the manual valves that open/close the technical gases are located on the front upper part of the hood.
