New Portable Radiation Shield - ALARA Shield Tote

We are excited to announce a new product exclusively available from RT Technologies, Inc.

The ALARA Shield Tote is a lightweight, lead-equivalent portable shield container that is extremely useful to transport highly radioactive tools, sample containers, etc.

The ALARA shield tote can be used by Radiation Safety and Health Physics departments at nuclear facilities or medical facilities/universities to assist in reducing radiation exposure/dose to personnel tasked with transportation of radioactive material. The contemporary design of the shield, coupled with the effective

gamma shielding of the lead-equivalent material, makes it a much lighter weight ALARA option (than traditional lead pigs.)

Additionally, customized geometries or containers of this lead alternative material can be made upon request.

ALARA stands for “as low as reasonably achievable”. ALARA means avoiding exposure to radiation that does not have a direct benefit to you, even if the dose is small.

Typical use cases for the ALARA Shield tote are:

  • Transportation of highly radioactive liquid samples contained in 1 liter (or smaller) poly bottles

  • Transportation/storage of radioactive sources or tools

  • Storage/transportation of Steam Generator Eddy Current probes

  • Storage/transportation of high-level radioactive smears/wipes/trash
