Conax designs and manufactures high-quality solutions for providing power, accurately monitoring temperatures, and providing reliable, secure feedthroughs for instrumentation.

If you need to provide electrical input to a fan, motor, heater or other AC or DC powered device, Conax has two great solutions covering virtually any power feedthrough requirement. Our power series compression seal fittings are simple and reliable mechanical pressure and vacuum seal fittings to supply high voltage or current to your equipment and protect your environment.

Single Electrode Style Compression Seal Fittings—Our single electrode style compression seal fittings allow for up to 525 amps per single electrode at up to 8000 VDC. Products include:

Power Lead Style Compression Seal Feedthroughs—Our Power Lead (PL) compression seal feedthroughs provide multiple sealed, insulated wires for inserting power into a furnace.

Conax Technologies is the industry leader in the design and fabrication of temperature measurement devices. Our temperature and control sensors are used throughout the glass manufacturing, furnace, and autoclave industries in a variety of processes. Products include:

Conax Technologies’ sealed feedthroughs and compression seal fittings have proven to be the industry leaders in quality and performance. We’re the originators of soft sealant technology that, when combined with mechanical compression, results in a remarkably secure seal on wires, probes, and electrodes passing through a pressure or environmental boundary. 

Feedthroughs with factory-installed lead wires are available in copper or thermocouple wire and include:

Feedthroughs without factory-installed lead wires include:
