Non-destructive testing: when safety & success must be absolutely assured

X-ray room design & construction

Radiation shielding is often required in industrial x-ray and non-destructive testing (NDT) applications. MarShield’s broad range of radiation shielding solutions can be used to protect sensitive components and the equipment operator from x-rays emitted by industrial x-ray systems – thus enabling effective and efficient radiation protection in a safe workplace environment.

MarShield designs and manufactures custom modular shielded rooms to meet your ALARA goals. These can be found in medical and industrial including non-destructive testing applications.
