AFL has released the FCC3 Debris Destroyer pen, a tool for cleaning fiber-optic connectors, adapter sleeves, optical distribution frame bulkheads and bare fibers in preparation for fusion splicing. In combination with wipes, tips and sticks, the pen is designed to remove connector end-face contaminants such as dirt, dust, oil and other debris, and to eliminate electrostatic charge.

The Debris Destroyer pen is saturated with isopropyl alcohol to dissolve endface and bare fiber contaminants. It is recommended for use with the One-Click family of pen cleaners, FiberWipes, CCT Connector Cleaning Tips, CLETOP Adapter Cleaning Sticks, CLETOP cassette cleaners and OPTIPOP cassette cleaners.

"For the most stubborn fiber cleaning tasks, AFL recommends a wet clean followed by a dry clean as best practice standard operating procedure," said Maury Wood, senior product manager for AFL's Test & Inspection division. "Using the Debris Destroyer in conjunction with AFL's other fiber cleaning products provides the strength to clean any endface contamination challenge."
