High pressures and temperatures act in concert in extreme environments and their effects are exacerbated over time. That is, high-pressure conditions alone are challenging, but the environment becomes more complex when elevated temperatures are added to the mix. Increased exposure time to these hostile environments adds yet another complicating factor.
Incorporating the patented Kryoflex® polycrystalline ceramic, PA&E manufactures reliable high-pressure/high-temperature (HPHT) hermetic connectors to meet these environmental challenges. The unique properties of the Kryoflex® ceramic-to-metal seal gives the seal a hermeticity rate of less than or equal to 1×10-9 CC/SEC He at 1 ATM differential pressure at temperatures up to 260°C.
