Re: Perspex insert in IIW Block

----------- Start Original Message -----------
: Ed is correct. The plug in an ASTM E164 IIW-Type 1 Block (Inch version) measures 0.923" thick. Since the velocity of acrylic is 46% of steel, this is the same as 2.000" in steel. The metric version (or V1 block) plug measures 23.0mm, and is matched to 50.0mm in steel. Not sure how useful this plug really is, but there you have it. By the way, some specs consider it optional, which explains why some manufacturers opt to exclude it. The unplugged 2" (or 50mm) diameter hole makes a nice lifting feature for carting this heavy block around.

: : : What is the purpose of this plastic insert in the IIW Block? What type of check is this used for?
: : I believe it is supposed to have a velocity that represents 2" of steel. I could be wrong.

Thanks Phil, but to be honest with you I was not sure because I have never seen one that was accurate.


Product Spotlight

Exertus Dual 120

The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192 sources or Selenium 75 source
s. This projector incorporates design and safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight. The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device, making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive products. The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always assuring the operator that the source has returned to the safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.
