Proven Real-World Performance
An oil & gas company specializing in flow, pressure, & temperature sensors for real time oil flow monitoring came to us with a unique problem perfect for Aculon's oleophobic technology. Their synthetic sapphire viewports were getting fouled while in use resulting in poor long term monitoring stability, requiring frequent extraction for cleaning, a costly endeavor.
By functionalizing their synthetic sapphire viewports with Aculon's oleophobic technology the viewports remain free of fouling oils and contaminants allowing for long term reliability and drastically reduced cleaning frequency leading to a significant increase in production up time.
