A highly engineered fiber cleaning cell, utilizing vibration, heat, and clean solvent, completely and consistently cleans the glass surface. Manual cleaning of a bare fiber is unacceptable. Quality control on the effectiveness of such a cleaning process is virtually non-existent. Moreover, cleaning processes that require physical contact with the glass surface run the risk of damaging the surface and thus create a serious failure point. kSARIA’s non-contact, automated process provides a consistent, ultra-clean surface while eliminating potential surface damage. The fiber surface is only touched by the cleaning solvent being vibrated at an ultrasonic frequency.
