Maintenance-free, high safety terminal headers offer - reduced total cost of ownership and peace of mind

Terminal headers are small, yet important components needed to supply pumps and expanders inside the LNG vessel with power, system control capabilities, and instrumentation signals. Considering the size of on- and offshore LNG facilities, it may be hard to imagine that a rather small component can be a weak point. However, the failure of a terminal header assembly can lead to performance or even safety-critical leakage issues. The key to superior reliability lies in the sealing technology. Eternaloc® terminal headers from SCHOTT are manufactured using gas-tight, non-aging glass-to-metal compression sealing, which has proven to be the safest, most reliable technology. Since 1985, thousands of Eternaloc® terminal header assemblies have been performing maintenance-free in LNG applications worldwide. For owners and operators of LNG facilities, this means reduced total cost of ownership that helps create substantial value while offering peace of mind.
