Delivery of walk-in x-ray chamber to site
Metrix NDT have delivered and commissioned a new IRR17 compliant walk-in x-ray chamber to a UK customer’s site.
The chamber is based around a standard 20’ ISO container which has been modified to provide a radiologically shielded laboratory rated up to 300keV. Fully interlocked with integrated x-ray safety warning lights, E-Stops and pre-installed comms to the remote control room the chamber has both a shielded personnel access door and a separate large (2m x 2m) equipment loading bay accessed via a shielded sliding door.
MD Nick Fox said:
” Successful delivery of this chamber further extends the range of x-ray equipment and accessories that Metrix can offer. We are delighted to have supplied this equipment to a local University to enable their research team to extend their facilities and provide a valuable new resource. The chamber designed to the customer’s specification will enable the University to install a variety of x-ray equipment and safely operate these systems from a remote control room whilst monitoring activity via dedicated CCTV.”
