Double Ridge

Double Ridge Flexible Waveguides

CAES’ Double Ridge Flexible Waveguides are constructed of silver plated copper alloy thin wall tubing convoluted using a unique hydraulic precision forming process. All units are R-F leak free, stable during dynamic flexure, and pressure tight. E and H plane bends as well as moderate twists may be preformed to customer supplied specifications.
