UltraSOLV and MiraWIPE Wipers and Swabs: The Best Way to Clean Post-Polished Fiber Optic Cables

by | May 16, 2023

Post-polished fiber optic cables are essential for high-speed data transmission and fiber lasers. However, they can be easily contaminated by dust, dirt, and other particles, leading to signal attenuation and loss of performance.

UltraSOLV and MiraWIPE wipers and swabs are the best way to clean post-polished fiber optic cables. They are specially designed to remove all contaminants from the fiber’s surface without damaging the fiber end face.

UltraSOLV wipers are soft, non-abrasive open-cell foam with pore sizes ranging from 20-500 microns. The abrasion-resistant foam efficiently removes polishing particles from the face of the cable, and the super-soft construction minimizes scratch defects. In addition, for particles that are attached at the perimeter of the end face, the compressible 3D structure of the foam enables a much more complete removal of polishing residuals.

UltraSOLV is available in wipers and swabs and can be custom fabricated to accommodate automated cleaning systems.

MiraWIPE swabs are also made of a soft, non-abrasive microfiber fabric ideal for final cleaning as it is very efficient at removing sub-20-micron particles.

Both UltraSOLV wipers and MiraSWAB swabs are easy to use. Wipe the cable with the wiper or swab, then inspect the end face with a microscope. The end face should be clean and free of any contaminants.

UltraSOLV wipers and MiraSWAB swabs will help ensure your post-polished fiber optic cables are clean and contaminant-free. This will help improve your cables’ performance and ensure you get the best possible data transmission.

Here are some of the benefits of using UltraSOLV and MiraWIPE wipers and swabs to clean post-polished fiber optic cables:

  • Remove all contaminants from the surface of the cable
  • Do not damage the fiber end face
  • Easy to use 
  • Cost-effective

In summary, UltraSOLV and MiraWIPE wipers and swabs are proven to reduce defects and increase productivity.
