Simply-designed, Versatile and Robust Vacuum Feedthrough

plug feedthrough
BCE’s plug feedthrough is an ideal product for any vacuum application. Not only is it easy to install and withdraw due to its stainless steel, threaded plug body, it can be embedded with leads, thermocouples and RTDs. Thus, it can be designed and customized to meet all requirements at a low production cost.

As it is sealed with BCE’s proprietary epoxy meeting NASA ASTM E595, outgassing is excessively low. Furthermore, all leads come with standard KAPTON insulation to limit contamination in vacuum applications. It should be noted that the 316 SS construction allows it greater resistance to corrosion increasing product life. This means fewer replacements.
