Title
(EN) HIGH TEMPERATURE FIBER OPTIC SPLINT
(FR) GAINE POUR FIBRES OPTIQUES HAUTE TEMPERATURE
Abstract
(EN)
A high temperature optical fiber splice splint (10) comprised of a material capable of withstanding an ambient temperature of at least 135 ±5 °C without of deforming is disclosed. Surrounding the inner sleeve (110), are first support member ,(120) and second support member (130). These support members help to protect the fibers from bending forces that may be applied to the splint when the splint is placed into ist final applicatiob. The support members (120 and 130) can be made from any one of a wide variety of materials, for example, quartz and PEI. Surrounding the support members (120,130) and the inner sleeve (110), which includes the optical fibres (150−155), is outer sleeve(140). The outer sleeve (140) can be made PVDF. PVDF has exellent resistence to common fuels, oils, solvents, acids and the like.
