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…
