Looking like science fiction, this accelerator is used for a very mundane application. Standing about 10 feet tall, it radiates plastic heat shrinkable tubing to give it a memory. The tubing is then moved to a machine that increases its diameter. Used to protect wires and connections in electronic and electrical circuits, when the tubing is placed over the wires and heated, it returns to its original size because of the radiation.
