In addition to our standard offerings, Newport News Industrial provides custom shielding design for special project needs. Custom molded HotGuard products provide you with the opportunity to have an engineered shielding product that meets your exact needs. Custom molded pieces are ideal for projects with small space envelopes or for projects with specific weight requirements.
In one case, a custom engineered HotGuard piece for a filter was used to replace a traditional steel and lead shielding drum and was able to provide the same level of shielding with a significantly decreased size and weight. This benefit allows more filters to be stored in the same area, and also made the filter light enough to be lifted by one person, providing significant dose savings.
