New Family of FBG Optical Sensors featuring Zeus PEEK Coating Now Available for Use in Harsh Environments
FBGs are reliable all-fiber optical components that have been used for making accurate and reliable temperature and strain measurements for over two decades. However, due to previous technical limitations, most applications in hot harsh environments were typically off limits. A new generation of T150 ruggedized Fiber Bragg Gratings are now available for operation in various metal prohibiting, corrosive, toxic, and chemically active environments to 260 Degrees Celsius. Protected by their Zeus PEEK outer layer, these new sensors are now solving measurement challenges in many existing and new markets. Optical sensors are widely used in industry and in research and development laboratories. Continue reading on itbusinessnet.com.
In July, developer and extruder of advanced polymers Zeus Industrial Products Inc. (Orangeburg, SC) debuted the first thin-walled PTFE catheter liner in its Sub-Lite-Wall StreamLiner series. The StreamLiner XT has a maximum wall thickness of 0.00075 in. (0.01905 mm). It followed that up this week with the introduction of the StreamLiner VT, which features a maximum wall thickness of 0.001 in. (0.025 mm) in an inner diameter size range of 0.004 to 0.120 in. (0.107 to 3.05 mm). Both products will be showcased by Zeus at the co-located Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) and PLASTEC events in Minneapolis next month.
