EAST GRANBY, CT - May 4, 2015– Nufern, a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers and amplifiers, and fiber optic gyro coils, announced today it has expanded its NuSENSOR fiber product offerings by introducing hermetic carbon and mid-temperature acrylate coated fibers. These coatings are optimized for fiber optic sensing applications in harsh environments where hydrogen ingression must be managed.
The NuSENSOR product line features graded index MM fibers designed for DTS and SM fibers designed for DTSS and FBG based sensors. Both the MM and SM fibers are available with either pure silica or germanium doped core glass compositions. Nufern is now offering these fibers with carbon/polyimide, and carbon/mid-temperature acrylate coatings in addition to existing polyimide coated fibers. These products cover the temperature range of up to 150°C for carbon/mid-temperature acrylate, and up to 300°C for carbon/polyimide coating. NuSENSOR fibers are ideally suited for H2 rich environments.
Kanishka Tankala, VP of Fiber Business, states, “Nufern continues to expand and build on its fiber knowledge base adding value to customers. We have invested in developing these new coatings to further enhance the range of applications and conditions our fibers can be used. We continue to offer the broadest range of specialty optical fibers at the cutting edge of today’s developing technologies.”
