Meet our team at Total Decom from the 27th - 29th March at The Point, Old Trafford, Manchester.
Total Decom brings together experts from the Oil & Gas, Nuclear and Defence industries. The event, held over two days covers many topics from innovation, engineering and waste to remediation and renewables. Read more about the event here.
MagnaDense concrete for Nuclear Decommissioning
LKAB Minerals supplies the nuclear decommissioning industry with MagnaDense, a high density naturally occurring mineral, manufactured from our own mines in Kiruna, Northern Sweden. Concrete constructions containing MagnaDense as a functional aggregate can achieve densities of up to 4.0 t/m3 and provide excellent shielding from harmful radiation and generated heat.
Using MagnaDense as an aggregate in concrete allows bunkers or containers to be built with slimmer walls, requiring less concrete and therefore reducing overall construction costs. These slimmer constructions have the same shielding properties as normal concrete constructions, enabling additional boxes to be placed in storage and making them easier to transport.
In addition, as MagnaDense is manufactured from the natural mineral magnetite, it will remain stable under long term storage conditions which for decommissioning projects is an important consideration.
Nuclear radiation shielding experience
MagnaDense has been used in many radiation shielding projects, both nuclear and healthcare. For details about any of these projects, meet us in Manchester or contact us by clicking here.
We look forward to meeting you.
