  • The IR imaging technology reduces ionizing radiation exposure for inspectors who check the protective lead aprons. (photonics.com)
  • While increasingly common, that inspection method can allow aprons with holes and tears to slip by undetected due to the large surface area that needs to be inspected, the outer fabric that encloses the protective apron and other factors. (photonics.com)
  • Using the tactile method for inspection, most staff who work regularly with radiation-emitting devices were able to identify defects that would cause a lead apron to be rejected, which is 11-mm holes for thyroid shields and 15-mm holes for aprons," Fricke said. (photonics.com)
  • Aprons are useful additional protective items for loading operations, handling concentrated formulations and cleaning out containers before disposal. (fao.org)
  • As with other protective equipment, aprons must be washed after use and inspected regularly for signs of damage. (fao.org)
