Whitepaper: HP/HT Connector Sealing Technology
Featured Product from Hermetic Solutions Group
Hermetic electrical feedthru connectors used in down-hole LWD (Logging While Drilling) and MWD (Measure While Drilling) applications face unique reliability challenges due to the highly elevated temperatures and pressures, as well as the corrosive water and moisture that may deteriorate electrical insulation and lead to catastrophic electrical failures. To help our customers better solve those challenges, the Hermetic Solutions Group had developed a high-strength Kryoflex XTS sealing material - a diamond-like polycrystalline ceramic that provides a highly reliable hermetic seal for feedthru connectors that operate in high-temperature and high-pressure water/fluid based downhole harsh environments.
Kryoflex XTS sealing material can be used to seal conductive pins (X750, Alloy52, BeCu, Ti-alloy, Pt/Ir etc.) made from a variety of materials into a range of metal shell (Inconel alloys, Ti-alloy, Kovar, and stainless steels) designs and compositions. The sealed electrical feedthrus manufactured with this material have been evaluated under 300oC/30,000PSI water-fluid simulated downhole harsh environments.
