MarShield has partnered with Premier Technology of Blackfoot Idaho, USA as their certified / trusted vendor providing poured lead and lead shielding components for Premier’s sophisticated HotCell and Glovebox technology projects. Premier Technology is a private woman-owned company founded in 1996 which has through the use of science and technology become a leader in global markets with innovative ideas, design and solutions. Premier has grown to be a full service engineering, custom manufacturing and construction management company employing nearly 300 highly skilled professionals.
Our partner Premier has the ability to execute vertically integrated design-to-delivery projects from engineering, design, fabrication, and machining through to testing, integration and field services in-house under their certified NQA-1 program with “Buy American Act” compliance. Premier’s reputation of delivering on-time, quality work has gained the trust of its clients affording them opportunities to serve as a resource on a wide variety of projects.
Premier’s hotcell design includes a proprietary interlocking lead brick to improve seismic stability and mitigate the chance of any shine paths. For applications where lead is not an option, stacked steel plates with offset hole patterns can be used. Mobile hotcells add the operational flexibility to relocate a hotcell or row of hotcells to accommodate future facility needs and our joint experience includes a variety of isotopes including Molybdenum 99, Cesium-131, Ho-166, Y-90, and others. Devices such as manipulators, transfer systems, and transport/packaging systems are routinely integrated into these solutions. Whether the hotcell is built-to-print or you are starting with functional requirements, Premier and MarShield’s experts are ready to partner with you to provide a safe and productive shielded environment for your operators.
