Alberox: Fire Detection Feedthru

February 20, 2001
Alberox has introduced a fire detection feedthru for aerospace applications. Using its application engineering expertise, Alberox produces fire detection components that can handle the most extreme conditions while remaining specialized for individual tasks. Fire detection feedthrus are constructed from a variety of metal components and high purity alumina (Al203) ceramic. These corrosion resistant materials and the manufacturing processes yield stable hermiticity in severe environments. Component durability is tested by subjecting all ceramic-to-metal assemblies to thermal cycling from - 55°F to 1000°F, as well as extended periods at elevated temperatures up to 1000°F.
