High Performance Sealing Assemblies (FSA)
Conax Technologies has adapted our proven soft sealant capability to include the ability to compress a soft sealant material around the outside diameter of a fiber optic cable. The fiber optic cable is encased within a rugged stainless steel sheath that protects the cable from damage during the sealing process. This sheath is then placed through a sealing gland. This process allows the fiber optic cable to be sealed without the use of epoxies and with minimal out-gassing.
The fiber optic feedthrough sub-assembly can be used with various Conax Technologies sealing glands, including multiple hole fittings and can be adapted for special applications.
