(RANDOLPH, N.J.: November 8, 2011) Douglas Electrical Components (DECo) (www.douglaselectrical.com) introduces its StudSeal™ hermetic feedthrough product family, which offers a selection of solid copper, heavy-current conductors sealed in a wide variety of standard housing styles and materials. The stud connectors from this line are used in vacuum or pressure applications where high current or high voltages penetrate a barrier. The customized passthroughs offer easy specification and mounting and are pretested and shipped to the customer directly.

StudSeal feedthroughs are compatible with a large variety of liquids and gases. These hermetically sealed studs are primarily used for the transfer of power into and out of a sealed environment at operational loads up to 1000amps and 15kV.

DECo can seal virtually any size or style stud in a housing of the customer’s choice, from low-volume R&D quantities to hundreds of thousands per year. While similar industry feedthroughs typically only offer threaded metal housing solutions, DECo can provide epoxy-based radial o-ring solutions that don’t require threading, resulting in increased value through faster installation at a lower cost.

The StudSeal feedthroughs are widely used in air conditioning and refrigeration compressors, vacuum furnaces and power distribution equipment. Specifically, these solutions are found in transformers, hermetically sealed compressors, pumps, magnetic bearing flywheels and heater circuits. Markets include semiconductor processing equipment, X-ray equipment and electric power.
