Feedthroughs for Oil & Gas Exploration

Product Details

Equipment used in the oil and gas exploration industry is exposed to challenging temperatures and pressures during downhole and underwater drilling. Hence, this places an immense stress on the components that are found in such equipment.

SCHOTT Electronic Packaging supplies advanced, state-of-the-art single and multi-pin connectors and various special feedthroughs for equipment used in oil and gas exploration. Feedthroughs and connectors from SCHOTT are highly respected in the industry due to their unique ability to withstand the high temperatures and high pressure of severe environmental conditions during downhole and underwater drilling. Our customized products are also capable of holding up to even the most severe, chemically corrosive environments.

We also manufacture glass-to-metal seal connectors and titanium-to-glass seals for use in this industry.


Glass-to-metal sealed (GTMS) feedthroughs are impervious to oil, heat, gas and vibrations over their entire lifetime. Hence, the seals remain reliably hermetic to ensure that the feedthroughs and essentially the equipment perform at its optimum.

The advanced feedthroughs and connectors that SCHOTT Electronic Packaging manufactures either meet or exceed the specifications and requirements that apply to the oil and gas exploration industry. With respect to pressure requirements, our products are capable of withstanding pressure of up to 50,000 PSI or even close to 100,000 PSI in some cases.

Advanced, state-of-the-art manufacturing and sealing techniques, proprietary processes and in-house production are only a few of the reasons why SCHOTT Electronic Packaging is a recognized leader in its field. The fact that our company is able to meet such high requirements speaks for itself and underscores our unique expertise when it comes to sealing glass to metal.
