Guardians of Integrity: Hermetic Sealed “Electron Beam Welded” Sensors

What is Hermetic Sealed?


Hermetic seals are all about creating airtight and watertight barriers between two separate components or systems. The term "hermetic" itself has a fascinating origin, tracing back to the legend of Hermes Trismegistus, a mythical figure in ancient Egyptian and Greek mythology renowned for his wisdom. The essence of hermetic seals lies in their ability to emulate Hermes' legendary talent for safeguarding secrets and preserving the purity of knowledge. They achieve this by sealing off external influences and maintaining the integrity of what they enclose.


The Essence of Hermetic Seals

Hermetic seals create airtight and watertight barriers, ensuring that moisture, gasses, or contaminants don't compromise sensitive electronic or mechanical systems. Their importance is magnified in applications like spacecraft, which operate in the vacuum of space, or in semiconductor manufacturing, where pristine environments are paramount.

Encardio Rite's Legacy with ISRO

A testament to innovation, Encardio Rite collaborated with the Indian Space Organization (ISRO) during its nascent rocket-launching days. This partnership led to the pioneering use of electron beam welding to seal load cell sensors, fortifying them against the intense pressures of rocket launches. Built to endure such extremes, these sensors are now seamlessly integrated into geotechnical engineering and structural health monitoring projects. Encardio Rite stands alone in this field, boasting this unique technology.

The Electron-Beam Welding Advantage

Electron-beam welding (EBW) is central to Encardio Rite's hermetic sealing process which hermetically seals our sensors providing them with IP68 protection against moisture ingress. This fusion welding technique uses a high-velocity electron beam to meld materials, ensuring an impeccable seal, especially vital in high-humidity environments. Our choice of EBW isn't just about adhering to standards but setting them.

Why Does Hermetic Sealing Matter?

Encardio Rite's sensors, sealed using state-of-the-art electron beam welding, offer unparalleled protection:

  1. IP-68 Protection: Our sensors resist corrosion and remain impervious to moisture and water, making them indispensable for long-term monitoring in challenging environments.
  2. Enhanced Durability: Shielded against external elements, our sensors promise longevity, especially in long-term monitoring scenarios.
  3. Reliable Performance: With moisture and contaminants kept at bay, our sensors consistently deliver accurate data.
  4. Versatility: Our sensors adapt to diverse environments from tunnels and dams to skyscrapers and underwater sites.
  5. Minimized Risk: Rigorous testing ensures precision, fostering trust in the monitoring results.
  6. Cost-Efficiency: Their durability translates to fewer replacements and repairs, leading to long-term savings.
