Custom Hermetic Connector Seals
Custom hermetically sealed connectors can be manufactured for practically any connector including military connectors, cable or wire feedthrough, thermocouple feedthrough, fiber optic feedthrough, flex circuit and computer equipment.
Which Hermetic Seal?
If an industry-standard seal doesn’t meet your specifications (such as d-sub feedthrough), we can work with you to find a cost-effective solution with a short lead time by creating a custom seal for your design. We have helped to create thousands of custom hermetic connector seals which can withstand high pressure and temperatures ranging from -100⁰C to 250⁰C.
The custom hermetic connector seals are achieved using epoxy resin. Epoxy seals offer advantages to both ceramic feedthroughs and glass feedthroughs and they are frequently used to solve design challenges that can’t be addressed easily with glass or ceramic seals. Epoxy seals can be routed through tight spaces and angles, frequently allowing us to solve design challenges that can’t be addressed easily with glass seals or ceramic seals. Epoxy seals can effectively seal gases and fluids, including helium gas with very low helium gas rates, making them a popular option in fiber optic and electrical hermetic seals. Epoxy seals have excellent resistance to oils and gasoline, so epoxy seals are the perfect choice for aerospace, energy and automotive industries too.
Testing Custom Hermetically Sealed Connectors
Every hermetic connector seal goes through the same rigorous testing to ensure top quality products are guaranteed. They all are dimensionally checked, continuity tested, hipot tested and go through a helium leak test.
Most custom pressure feedthrough and vacuum feedthrough seals begin with an e-mail or phone call from a customer. Whether you require a prototype, low volume or high volume, our experienced engineering team will oversee every custom hermetic seal project from the early design stage through to the manufacturing process. If you have a specific connector, fiber optic, cable or wire in your system that needs to be sealed, we can use it to create your custom hermetic seal.
We will require some information from you, such as:
- Pressure or Vacuum level
- Temperature range
- Gases or liquids present
- Electrical requirements
Custom Hermetic Connector Seal Types
It is impossible to convey the vast variety of connectors that our engineering team have sealed. As it stands, there has never been a connector that our team have been unable to seal, so whatever your connector, please contact our team today for your custom hermetic seal.
