Oil & Gas and Subsea Applications
Having entered oil-and-gas and subsea/submarine markets just 4 years ago, AFP have already become a major player for a number of key products, delivering unique technology solutions with superior reliability and providing significant cost savings for very demanding customers.
AFP’s fiber optic penetrators use glass sealing technology to provide 100% reliability and unlimited operational life-time. The company is the largest producer of optical penetrators that have been successfully qualified at extremely high pressures (up to 22,500 psi) and high temperatures (up to +177C) in corrosive and rugged environments usual in deep oil wells and underwater applications.
AFP’s technology has been qualified and is used for optical hermetic penetrators and feedthroughs for subsea connectors, submarine repeaters/branching units, wellhead and downhole demarcation points and defense submarine equipment.
AFP’s broadcast fiber video technologies have also been developed into integrated rugged miniature active modules, providing media conversion, HD/3D video and mixed signal transmission for the world’s largest ROV makers, used in the world’s deepest oceans.
