Shielded enclosures are critical components of radiation safety at scientific, medical, and industrial facilities around the world. As part of the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source Upgrade (CHESS-U), ADC has designed, fabricated, and installed highly modular shielded enclosures (“hutches” at synchrotron facilities). ADC utilized expert consultation offered by several facilities including engineers from Advanced Photon Source (APS)1–3 and Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS); with each facility providing guidance to assure that the design satisfies the rigorous radiation safety requirements. In this paper, ADC will discuss the design of these hutches, particularly the modular design elements which facilitate rapid installation to minimize downtime at the synchrotron.
