Because of its many unique characteristics, Flexible Wavguide has found
wide use as a component in microwave equipment. System and laboratory problems associated
with shock, vibration, tolerance take-up due to misalign-ment or temperature variations,
ease of assembly and disassembly, etc., are ideally solved by inclusion of this versatile
SEAMLESS & SIDESEAM CORRUGATED FLEXIBLE WAVEGUIDE
MECís Rectangular and Double-Ridge Seamless Corrugated Flexible Waveguide
are made by convoluting seamless tubing. Rectangular waveguide sizes larger
than WR-137 are made Sideseam. All units are inherently pressure-tight, highly
stable, rugged, and have no R-F leakage. They will bend more than the
flexible-twistable types but cannot withstand any twisting. Bends are
semi-permanent and small bends radii should be factory formed. Unless
requested, units are supplied without jacket or silver plating.
FLEXIBLE-TWISTABLE WAVEGUIDE (FOR SPECIAL APPLICATIONS)
Microwave Engineering Corporations Rectangular and Double-Ridge
Flexible-Twistable Waveguide are of the convoluted type of construction. They are
precision-wound in accordance with strict design standards, which assure long life and
excellent electrical performance. Adjacent turns are securely crimp-locked together
forming a continuous joint. All units are supplied with a molded jacket of neoprene and
are available with MECs Flangelok Molding Process, which eliminates flange
separation problems under conditions of extreme tension.
Besides the standard units described on the following pages, Microwave
Engineering Corporation produces many special assemblies such as twists and
pre-formed bends to much smaller radii to satisfy unique requirements.
Additionally, combinations of rigid and flexible waveguide, jacketed or
unjacketed, with built-in pressure/relief valves, quick-disconnect flanges,
etc., are readily available. All units are manufactured in accordance with
strict design standards, which assure long life under adverse field
Data subject to change without notice.
