Power feedthroughs are used for transmitting either high current, high voltage or both into your vacuum system.
Such power feedthroughs are designed to provide optimum performance at the same time as ensuring safe operating conditions. Feedthroughs are designed to have the longest possible insulator distance between the conductor and ground to maximise strike and creep distances. Insulators are often convoluted to increase this distance without increasing overall space requirement of the feedthrough. Air side ceramics are glazed to minimise contamination, which could impact electrical performance.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements in detail or if you have any further questions.
Water cooled power feedthroughs are available, with coolant being passed through the feedthrough conductor itself. Water cooled electrical feedthroughs should only be used in conjunction with closed loop cooling systems and non conducting coolant, i.e. de-ionised water. Please note, extra care should always be taken when dealing with water an electricity in close proximity.
