EAST GRANBY, CT - May 5, 2014– Nufern, a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers and amplifiers, and fiber optic gyro coils, announced today it is further expanding its product offerings by introducing the NuSENSOR family of fibers, specifically optimized for fiber optic sensing applications in harsh environments where hydrogen ingression must be managed. Building on their extensive specialty fiber knowledge and experience, Nufern’s NuSENSOR line of products cover a range of multimode and single-mode fibers and are engineered for customer applications that include Raman based distributed temperature sensing (DTS) as well as Brillouin distributed temperature and strain sensing (DTSS).
The NuSENSOR product line features a graded index, pure silica core MM fiber designed for DTS and a pure silica core SM fiber designed for DTSS. Both fibers come standard with polyimide coating rated to 300°C operation, with options for silicone and acrylate coatings also available. These fibers are immune to the effects of H2 ingression at elevated temperature and pressure making them ideal for demanding oil and gas downhole sensing applications.
Bryce Samson, VP of Business Development, states, “Nufern continues to expand its fiber product line and the introduction of the NuSENSOR optical fibers demonstrates our commitment to expand into markets where our customers feel additional solutions are needed. We continue to offer the broadest range of specialty optical fibers and this new fiber family keeps Nufern at the cutting edge of today’s developing technologies. ”
