Gas Sensor Housings & Feedthroughs

Product Description

As the name suggests, gas sensors are used to detect a wide range of gaseous substances. They are most commonly used in systems to provide warnings in case of dangerous concentrations of certain types of gases, enabling notice for corrective action to be taken.

Gas sensors must be thoroughly protected from their surrounding environments to function properly, especially in circumstances when the gases they are intended to monitor are damaging or dangerous. Glass-to-metal sealed (GTMS) housings and feedthroughs an ideal choice for the protection of gas sensors. The hermetically sealed housing provides protection for the sensors and also enables supply of electrical power at the feedthrough points.


Gas sensor feedthroughs and hermetic gas detector enclosures are made with glass-to-metal sealing technology. The hermetic seal formed by the fusing of specialty glass and metal helps provide reliable protection for the enclosed sensor. Our feedthroughs can be adapted to a range of different gas sensors and areas of application according to customer requirements.


Gas sensors are used in a variety of applications, both in consumer applications (such as gas ranges) as well as in the industrial sector. Gas sensors are also used in vehicles, where they  monitor carbon dioxide (CO2) levels inside the passenger compartment. In case of high carbon dioxide levels, the closure of vents and the activation of the air re-circulation system is initiated.
