Talk about radiation

Most people will never see an application that has lubrication problems due to radiation (except for Nuclear Power Plants). But radiation is also used in many industries for sterilization. Cobalt 60 and E-Beam are commonly used to sterilize health care and surgical products, cosmetics, spices, fruit and vegetables, and many other products that are made safe from bacteria and insect infestation by safe, controlled exposure to radiation.

The problem is that grease or oils used to lubricate the conveyor systems in these facilities cannot stand up to that environment because liquids vaporize off in radiation.

CSL is a perfect lubricant for the conveyor systems used in these applications. It is common for no maintenance to be required on these conveyor systems, sometimes for ten or twelve years.
