What Can a Hermetically Sealed Connector Handle?

A hermetically sealed connector is designed to deal with extreme conditions. That is the reason it is often used for military or industrial purposes. Astronauts and scuba divers may rely on these connectors to provide the best possible connection in the most unlikely places. Lives may literally depend on the strength of a seal, so…

Which Is the Best Hermetic Seal: Glass or Ceramic?

If you are in the market for a hermetic seal, you may wonder if it is better to purchase a glass to metal seal or a ceramic to metal seal. Each variety has its respective advantages and disadvantages. Some people prefer to stick with one kind, while others use different seals depending on the function.…

Understanding Electrical Feedthroughs

Glass-to-metal seals are more effective than O-rings and epoxy when it comes to maintaining an hermetic seal. Sometimes, glass isn’t effective at high voltage or high operating temperatures. The solution is a ceramic-to metal seal and electrical feedthrough. Although there is more labor and time involved in creating this type of seal, it will work…

Choosing the Right Hermetic Feedthrough and Seal

Although you’ve developed a system that requires a hermetic feedthrough and seal, you may not have the knowledge and experience to fully know what type of system and materials should be used to be most effective when your product is in use. Our engineers specialize in hermetic feedthroughs and seals in many different industries to…

Getting the Right High Vacuum Feedthrough

A hermetic feedthrough must be secure enough to prevent leakage, even the smallest amount. It has to maintain a vacuum under certain conditions, which are different for every application. Fortunately, there are three main types of feedthroughs which operate in hermetic vacuums:   Low voltage Water-cooled and RF High-voltage   We have the experience to…

Creating the Hermetic Sealing for Your Application

It used to be difficult to get an airtight seal for distillation and other processes. Today’s technology makes hermetic sealing much easier to attain, when you have the right engineers behind your development team. Although many companies attempt to use an O-ring or epoxy to get the hermetic seal, there are other processes which work…

Electrical Feedthroughs

Maintaining Hermetic Seals With a Glass-to-Metal Bond It’s hard to imagine that a furnace and x-ray equipment using some of the same technology, but electrical feedthroughs are vital to many different applications which require a hermetic seal with an electrical feedthrough that prevents even the tiniest amount of leakage in the vacuum. When your business…
