Fiber Optic Center Announces Splicer V-Groove Cleaning Kit Solution

Fiber Optic Center, Inc., (FOC), an international leader in distributing fiber optic components, equipment and supplies and recognized as one of the most technically savvy fiber optics companies in the world, announces the addition of Splicer V-Groove Cleaning Kit to their website.

The AFL Splicer V-Groove Cleaning Kit integrates eight components into an affordable and effective inspection and cleaning solution for any fusion splicer.

A frequent topic at FOC both in the online AskFOC tool and on location with customers is the challenge with contamination.   Contamination in the v-groove of the splicer is still a primary source of trouble for the splicing technician. This is especially problematic when splicing with a fixed v-groove fusion splicer.

Environmental contamination, such as dust, dirt, and fiber coating debris, as well as, the silica deposits generated during the fusion process eventually find their way to the surface of the v-groove. This contamination will offset the fibers and degrade performance. To help control this problem, a disciplined cleaning regimen and specific tooling is required to ensure the splice is right the first time.
