Definitions for "Hermetic seal"
A seal that prevents penetration of water or vapor. Modern pulse generators have metallic cases which are sealed by welding, so that no fluid can enter the device. If hermeticity is lost, fluid entering the pulse generator case could potentially cause a short circuit or abrupt battery failure.
HTS wire can be hermetically sealed to prevent ballooning issues (see Ballooning). To establish a hermetic seal, American Superconductor has created a special lamination technique. This HTS Hermetic Wire prevents liquid nitrogen from entering the system even under a pressurized environment.
a coat applied in the final stage of thermal processing to seal the ceramic package and to protect the device from the external environment.
