Nuclear Industry Specialty Lubricants and Sealants
Huron Inc. has a very long history of specializing in providing a range of pipe thread lubricants and sealants designed to work in the demanding environment of the nuclear industry, including power plants, research facilities, and medical isotope production. Our legacy in the nuclear industry starting with our initial client, the US Navy nuclear propulsion program, makes us particularly sensitive to dealing with stringent specifications for performance and strict, documented testing results for nuclear facility needs
How Neolube Specialty Lubricants and Sealants are used in the Nuclear Industry
Nuclear applications today can include a wide range of requirements of temperature and pressure plus impurity specifications added on top of varying levels of radiation.
Our lubricant products are proven to prevent galling in stainless steel, aluminum, and many other applications with both graphite and molybdenum disulfide as the principle lubricating agent.
Our pipe thread lubrication products have a long history of proven performance as a non-corrosive dry adherent lubrication for metal parts with limited clearances in applications where control of impurities is required.
Huron, Nuclear Industry Specialty Lubricant and Sealant Experts for 40 Years.
Our pipe thread sealants have high chemical purity, excellent thermal stability, low halogen content and excellent radiation resistance, which makes them very advantageous for use in critical nuclear system service applications. Joints sealed properly will be easy to disassemble even after years of high-temperature, high radiation service without hardening or curing.
We can coordinate engineering support to answer questions about your specific applications. Nuclear facility pipe thread lubricants and sealants must meet a wide range of requirements from primary systems to secondary steam and more standard requirements like water, air, and hydraulics systems. We can help you find exactly the right product for your nuclear industry lubrication needs.
If you are constructing a new nuclear facility, manufacturing plant, or research installation, our sealants and lubricants can often save thousands of dollars in connections that will not gall and can be always disassembled easily.
