Other housing Materials available, include: cold rolled steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, and phosphor-bronze.
All our machining and inspection methods meet MIL-I 45208A, MIL-STD-45662, and MIL-Q-9858A standards.

Proven Reliability

100% fine leak checked per MIL-STD-883, method 1014.5.
Consistently meet MIL-STD-883 requirements, including liquid-to-liquid thermal shock, method 1010.5.
Customer life tests of aluminum housings have suppassed 100 liquid-to-liquid thermal shock and 700 air-to-air temperature cycles without the use of epoxies.

The Advantages of Aluminum Over Kovar

  • Aluminum is 1/3 the weight of kovar
  • Aluminum is five times more thermally conductive
  • A complete aluminum housing is about half the cost of a complete machined kovar housing
