Nufern’s new fibre coverings resist hydrogen gas and high temperatures

Nufern Speciality Optical FibreThe NuSENSOR™ product line, by Nufern, features graded index multimode (MM) fibres designed for Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS); and single-mode (SM) fibres designed for Distributed Temperature and Strain Sensing (DTSS), and Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) based sensors.

Both the MM and SM fibres are available with either pure silica or germanium doped core glass compositions, and Nufern is now offering these fibres with carbon/polyimide or carbon/mid-temperature acrylate coatings in addition to the existing polyimide coated fibres. Depending on coating chosen, the fibre is can be protected from temperatures up to 300 °C and H2 rich environments.
