Applications of Radiation Shielding Hinges

Neutron radiation is ionizing radiation, where neutrons are generated through the nuclear fission and fusion processes. Due to the neutrons’ high kinetic energy, it is considered as the most severe and dangerous type of radiation. However, this radiation is unavoidable in some sectors such as nuclear research, medical, defense, and others. This is why neutron shielding products including neutron shielded doors feature lead lining that protects workers against the harmful effects of neutron radiation. These doors are equipped with specially designed heavy-duty hinges. Are you looking for neutron shielding door hinges? If yes, then Kiesler Machine Inc. is the one-stop solution for you. We offer a wide range of door hinges for neutron shielding applications. We offer these hinges for continuous use and trouble-free services at competitive prices, and these are Proudly manufactured in the USA.Neutron radiation is ionizing radiation, where neutrons are generated through the nuclear fission and fusion processes.
