Lead fabrications that are required for critical shielding applications or to hold radioactive materials, can be lined with lead to provide the necessary shielding.
Calder Nuclear offers two methods of lead lining, to accommodate different vessels and circumstances.
Hot filling involves casting molten lead directly into the vessel, under carefully controlled conditions to avoid cavity shrinkage. Our hot filled process can also be complemented by high intensity gamma testing, to ensure shielding integrity.
Cold filling is where we line a vessel with rolled, extruded or machined lead.
