Hermetic Seal Corporation (HSC), a unit of AMETEK Interconnect, has expanded its hermetic sealing capabilities to include state-of-the-art hermetic fiber-optic component manufacture. The glass-to-fiber-optic seal (GTFOS) capabilities allow AMETEK HSC to manufacture, process, terminate and test optical connector and feedthrough components for demanding harsh environments utilizing specialty optical fibers. Using proprietary glass formulations and processes, the firm’s unique sealing method results in a hermetic barrier (≤ 10 scc/s) with excellent optical properties that maintains stable performance at temperatures and pressures that may be in excess of 210°C at 30,000 psi.
