Shielded equipment and facilities
James Fisher has experience in designing and building shielded cabinets, enclosures and cells with the appropriate safety features and services for efficient and safe operation.
X-ray machines, radioactive materials and other methods of ionising radiation, require shielding and a carefully designed facility to protect staff from excessive dose uptake.
We can assess your requirements and design and project manage the upgrade of an existing facility or build a new one to meet regulations and good practice. The documentation package used in order to substantiate the design typically includes shielding calculations and shine path analyses.
We also design and build control systems to IEC 61508 and BNF.EG00090_1 for safety related applications. The control systems for opening shield doors, gamma gates and shield plugs can be interlocked to prevent accidental exposures to operators.
