During The International Conference on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect (ICAME-2017) which was held in September, 2017 in St. Petersburg, Russia, 10 pcs. of Mössbauer sources shielding grippers were drawn by RITVERC.
Shielding grippers were designed for mounting and dismounting of Mössbauer sources manufactured by RITVERC on NGR-spectrometers. Shielding of gripper made of tungsten essentially reduces dose rate to the operator during source installation.
6 out of 10 shielding grippers have been already delivered to Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia), Institute of Metal Physics (Russia), Åbo Akademi University (Finland), Palacký University Olomouc (Czech Republic), Shubnikov Institute of Crystallography FSRC "Crystallography ad Photonics" RAS (Russia), Ural Federal University (Russia).
The next one goes to Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute soon.
Call for your shielding gripper!
