  • Introducing the LCDB - Custom Distribution Box for ICS Interlock Systems

    The Laser Control Distribution Box (LCDB) allows for a "Quick" connection and control of multiple shutters or lasers using the Lasermet ICS Interlock Laser Control Systems! The LCDB expands the capability of each interlock operator output to connect multiple shutters or interlocks to a single interlock operator on the Lasermet system. Dimensions: 2.72 x 4.48 x 1.39 inches (without plug terminals) Maximum Input Voltage: 160V Use with any existing system For more information on our products, please contact RT Technologies, inc. at 770-332-0092, or email us at contact@rtlasersafety.com.

  • What is the NEW ALARA Shield blanket?

    The Demron™ ALARA Shield blanket is a contemporary shielding solution for gamma and X-Ray radiation. The fabric can be configured in industry standard shielding blankets or curtain designs as well as in unique, customizable designs. Utilizing a patented material that is a mixture of heavy metal and polymers, the ALARA shielding material allows for an industrial shielding solution that is lighter in weight than lead and is Non-Toxic. Therefore, when the Demron material becomes contaminated with residual radioactive contamination it is NOT A MIXED HAZARDOUS Material such as traditional lead. The material is available in 6 or 12 layer thicknesses Key Benefits: Significantly lighter weight (pounds/square foot) compared to lead; Results in reduced resources and person dose required to deploy/collect Non-toxic material; eliminate mixed hazardous waste concerns typically encountered with lead Customizable size and thickness solutions; can develop a specific solution for a given application The outer layer of material is easily wiped down/decontaminated due to Herculite outer layer Large Area Blankets/Curtains can be designed with grommets or magnets to facilitate easy hanging and attaching to surfaces and locations Blanket Use Cases: Pipe/component shielding Outage/Reactor Head/Cavity shielding Tool/Component shielding Rad Monitoring or Contamination/Portal Monitoring shielding Shadow or Large Area shielding Rad Waste/HIC Container shielding Glovebox/sampling skid shielding Custom Use Cases/Industry Examples: ​In-core detector shielding bag Reactor Coolant/Demineralizer filter transfer Container shielding 55-gallon drum lid shield covers Shielded Work or Hot Tool Bag (used to move material with hot particle) Low Dose shielding Decon Tents Fuel Handling Crane and Tool customized shielding Neutron Flux (Gamma metrics) detector box slipcovers For more information on our products, please contact RT Technologies, inc. at 770-332-0092, or email us at contact@rtlasersafety.com.

  • Do windows need to be covered when using a laser?

    A few times I have been told that people are using a piece of cloth to cover windows when they are using a laser. They believe that since the window is blocked to light that a laser beam will not pass through. This is NOT a true statement! This would be similar to saying, "I'm wearing a coat, so a bullet can't go through". In order to protect yourself from a bullet, you need o bulletproof vest or bulletproof windows. If you want to protect yourself, your staff, and visitors from a laser beam, you need certified laser protective materials. Most Class 4 and many Class 3B lasers present an eye hazard over very long distances. Therefore, it is imperative to have comprehensive laser safety protection in place wherever they are present. Ordinary curtains are rarely capable of stopping a laser beam and specially designed blocking products are required. Lasers are often added to a Healthcare Program without adequate window safety/protection. As a result, this puts the healthcare facility, its workers, patients, and visitors at significant risk of laser injury. Laser blocking blinds are a simple way to cover a window. They are relatively easy to install and easy to clean. The blinds can be mounted around the frame of the window, or they can be mounted inside a recessed area. The operation of the blind is controlled by a chain (most common) or crank handle. We also offer motorized blinds that can be controlled wirelessly. The blind is built into a white finish aluminum frame, which encapsulates the top, both edges, and bottom of the blind. This eliminates the possibility of laser beams passing around the sides of the blind, blocks out direct light, and provides a neat finish. The material used in the blinds is CE marked and certified to EN 60825-4 (Safety of Laser Products Part 4: Laser Guards). It is vital that the roller blinds are certified and the material has been tested to the relevant laser safety standards. If non-compliant material were to be used - for example - untested, uncertified sun-blocking material, this may have the potential to allow laser beams to penetrate the blind and consequently may cause harm to personnel and/or equipment. Please contact us with any questions you have regarding laser blocking blinds or other laser needs you may have at 770.332.0092 or contact@rtlasersafety.com.
