The EC2 is a purpose designed and built emergency container. The EC2 is designed to be used with Ir192, Se75 and Yb169 sources. The EC2 can be manufactured for use with Viking source holders, 660 or 880 compatible source holders, gammamat TI source holders. The EC2 is constructed of an economical lead sphere housed in Polyurethane foam and a robust steel shell.

The Type A status of the EC2 allows the package to be used to transport the radioactive contents if the emergency container is put into action. A Type A limit allows transportation of isotopes up to the A1 or A2 value; 1TBq (27 Ci) for Ir192. This allows for dose saving following an emergency incident as there is no need to move the source from a non-transportable emergency continer into an approved transport package.
