Annual door inspections could help prevent MRI service disruptions

Envirotect’s RF doors are designed to provide reliable, low maintenance service for use in the most demanding MRI facilities.  To minimise interruptions to services that can be caused by issues with an RF door and to extend its life, Envirotect offers annual inspection, servicing and repairs.

Annual inspections consist of a full examination of the whole RF door system including the general condition of the frame and door face, door seal, latch system, hinges, door closer and contact fingers.

Finger and gasket type doors require regular professional cleaning and lubrication to ensure maximum service life and correct operation. 

Periodically the RF fingers or the gasket will require replacing to maintain the best shielding performance and Envirotect can now replace these parts on a range of doors.

Inspections can be scheduled around busy periods to avoid disruption and after the inspection the company will submit a proposal for approval if any repairs are required.  The company will also confirm any recommendations to enhance the service life of the RF door.    

Independent tests can be arranged by Envirotect including RF attenuation, EMI survey, vibration survey and magnetic steel shielding calculations.  If enviro-Steel® magnetic shielding is required, the company can supply and install as required.
