Fluid for automated cleaning of fibre optic connectors

Updates and enhancements are being brought to Sticklers fibre optic cleaning products to the ECOC Exhibition by MicroCare Europe, from 19th-21st September, in Düsseldorf, Germany. The focus at this expo will be the new CleanBlast-compatible HFE-based fibre cleaning fluid from Viavi Solutions, now packaged by the MicroCare and the Sticklers team.

The CleanBlast chemistry is the cleaning fluid used in the CleanBlast fibre optic cleaning system manufactured by Viavi Solutions. This system is engineered for the automated, high-speed cleaning of fibre end-faces. These systems are widely used around the world by electronics OEMs incorporating fibre optic connectors on their PCBs, plus other OEMs making fibre transceivers, patch cords and other quality fibre optic devices.

Thousands of systems are in use in Europe, the US, Mexico and across Asia and every one of these systems needs a supply of the CleanBlast HFE-based cleaning fluid.

Now packaged in the Sticklers factory, the CleanBlast fluid will manufactured to the Viavi specification. It is 100% compatible with the Viavi CleanBlast machine. The fluid is packaged in the same industry-standard 225ml brown glass bottles and will exactly fit the Viavi CleanBlast fibre cleaning systems.

The fluid itself is a nonflammable HFE blend which is the exact, drop-in replacement for the cleaning fluid provided with the Viavi Solutions CleanBlast systems; no adjustments to the machine will be required. Part numbers and exterior packaging remains identical to the Viavi specifications.

After the ECOC exhibition, Viavi Solutions will no longer offer the cleaning fluid and instead refer customers needing CleanBlast fluids to Sticklers distributors world-wide.
