Lead castings

TRIANGL® s.r.o. has been processing lead for more than 100 years. We therefore have unique knowledge in this field.

Lead castings are non-standard screenings composed of variously shaped parts. They are used primarily in plants where there is a risk of radioactive exposure.

Castings are cast into steel ingot moulds and are subsequently machined. Further areas of production consist in sealing in steel casings; this design is chosen in case it is necessary to increase the strength of the casting without compromising its ability to absorb harmful radiation.

Production:

We offer custom-made lead castings and accessories according to particular customer requirements. The size of castings is limited by weight to up to 5,000 kg. Castings are cast into steel ingot moulds and are subsequently machined. Pure lead is usually alloyed with approx. 3% antimony (Sb) to increase its strength and workability.
