    Significance and Use

    Radiation Shielding Window Components:

    Radiation shielding window components operability and long-term integrity are concerns that originate during the design and fabrication sequences. Such concerns can only be addressed, or are most efficiently addressed, during one or the other of these stages. The operability and integrity can be compromised during handling and installation sequences. For this reason, the subject equipment should be handled and installed under closely controlled and supervised conditions.

    This standard is intended as a supplement to other standards and to federal and state regulations, codes, and criteria applicable to the design of radiation shielding window components.

    1. Scope

    1.1 Intent:

    1.1.1 The intent of this standard is to provide guidance for the design, fabrication, quality assurance, inspection, testing, packaging, shipping, installation, and maintenance of radiation shielding window components. These window components include wall liner embedments, dry lead glass radiation shielding window assemblies, oil-filled lead glass radiation shielding window assemblies, shielding wall plugs, barrier shields, view ports, and the installation/extraction table/device required for the installation and removal of the window components.

    1.2 Applicability:

    1.2.1 This standard is intended for those persons who are tasked with the planning, design, procurement, fabrication, installation, and operation of the radiation shielding window components that may be used in the operation of hot cells, high level caves, mini-cells, canyon facilities, and very high level radiation areas.

    1.2.2 This standard applies to radiation shielding window assemblies used in normal concrete walls, high-density concrete walls, steel walls and lead walls.

    1.2.3 The system of units employed in this standard is the metric unit, also known as SI Units, which are commonly used for International Systems, and defined, by Standard for Use of International System of Units. Common nomenclature for specifying some terms; specifically shielding, uses a combination of metric units and inch-pound units.
