For Beta and Gamma Radiation
Shielded Storage Containers are useful for storing used syringes, alcohol wipes, etc., that may be contaminated with low-energy gamma or beta radiation residue prior to disposal.
The 050-200 and 050-250 Storage Containers are constructed of stainless steel lined with .125″ lead (.32 cm.).
The 050-205 is constructed of stainless steel lined with .25″ lead (.64 cm) and .0625″ aluminum (1.6 mm). This shielding combination attenuates gamma radiation, beta radiation and errant bremsstrahlung.
