Eternaloc® Connectors and Penetrators for Oil Exploration

Product Description

Made to Withstand Extreme Conditions Deep Underground

SCHOTT has developed customizable Eternaloc® connectors for use in HPHT (high pressure, high temperature) oil & gas exploration environments. Eternaloc® connectors are designed to support safe and reliable transmission of valuable data and information provided by sensors in Wireline, MWD and LWD oil & gas applications.


  • 35,000 PSI and above: Robust glass-to-metal seals maintain integrity in some of the harshest environments on earth with 35KSI design pressure and 50KSI burst pressure resistance.
  • Superior pressure resistance and insulation resistance under extreme conditions: ≥10GΩ - with our high-temperature sealing glasses, higher IR can be achieved at 500°F in some circumstances.
  • Extreme temperature resistance: Eternaloc® connectors are designed to withstand temperatures in excess of 500°F.
  • Fully customizable: Single and multi-pin, male/female connections, and custom materials – flexible design and sampling for a variety of applications.
