Pyrometallurgical engineering firm Inprotect has won a six-figure contract to supply a new lead casting plant to NELCO Worldwide.

The Wakefield-based company will install the plant at NELCO’s Houston manufacturing facility over six months, to replace an existing plant.

The new plant will feature three industrial-sized lead melting kettles, used to melt recycled scrap in order to turn it back into metal slabs.

These slabs will be used to create radiation-shielding products such as the lead doors and bricks used to encase X-ray and radiology facilities in hospitals.

Inprotec has been commissioned by NELCO, a medical and industrial radiation shielding company, to boost production capability, improve employees’ working space, and deliver environmental benefits.

Chris Oldroyd, managing director at Inprotec, said: “We’re delighted to announce this contract win and excited to be working with a business of the scale and significance of NELCO.

“Once operational, the plant will deliver massive benefits to NELCO, ranging from boosting their already impressive production capabilities, through to significantly enhancing the working environment for employees and reducing the company’s environmental footprint.”
