Shielding with Bariblock®15 blocks for the Ospedale dell'Angelo in Mestre - Italy

BARIBLOCK®15 barytic blocks were used to shield ionising radiation from the waste collection room of the Nuclear Medicine and Metabolic Radiotherapy Department of the Ospedale dell'Angelo in Mestre, Italy.

Bariblock® for the shielding of an X-ray tube for non-destructive radiographic testing

Bariblock® barytic concrete, thanks to its reduced thickness ensured by its high density (ρ=3,300 kg/m³), was chosen by an important company in the petrochemical sector to shield a 300 kV X-ray tube, used to perform non-destructive radiographic testing, at its plant in Cagliari, Italy.

Latest Bariblock® International Research Results Available

The results of recent international research on the Bariblock® barytic block have been published on the European Physical Journal Plus of the Springer Nature group. The tests concern the macroscopic cross section of neutrons in baryte concrete in the energy range between 1 meV and 1 keV.

Bariblock: barite ionizing radiation shielding

SVA, leading company in the production of shielding panels, is specialized in new buildings and renovations as well as in electromagnetic shielding and radiation protection works. Radiation shielding is important both in the medical sector, to ensure the safety and health of those who work in spaces where investigations are carried out with x-ray machines, and in the industrial sector for shielding nuclear plants or in centers where are used radioactive isotopes with production cycles. Created from barite inert and combined with Portland cement, Bariblock® is an innovative and eco-sustainable product capable of shielding radiation potentially harmful to the individual. A valid alternative to traditional solutions such as lead slabs, Bariblock has a high volume mass that involves low thickness, fast installation and reduce construction costs.
