PX-1 Fireset - Detonators & Safe Fire Systems
The PX-1 has the highest temperature rating of any system on the market, with an
operating range from – 25ºC to +225ºC. It can initiate EFI detonators through six
inches of twisted-pair wires or 3 feet of coax cable; EBW detonators can be fired
through 10ft and more of twisted-pair wires. Its compact dimensions (5” X 0.82” X 0.74)
allow it to fit in virtually every gun system in use today, including pressure housings with an OD of 1-3/8”.
It has been fully certified by Orion International Technologies at Sandia National Laboratories to
standards that exceed any practical level of threat that might exist in the oilfield environment, including
stray DC voltages from -600VDC to +150VDC, AC voltages at 600V rms from 40Hz through 20kHz, RF testing
from 260kHz at 50V/m, electrostatic discharges, and severe direct lightning strikes to the wireline
within 3ft of the PX-1 itself. Particularly on offshore platforms, these safety features can result
in very significant cost savings for the operator.
- 'Air Shippable' as Class 1.4S
- - Conforms to API RP-67 Recommended Practices
- The ADP-PX16-130, ADP-PX16-150, ADP-PX16-222, and ADP9PX28-102 Initiation Systems utilize
Exploding Bridge-Wire technology to increase safety during firing operations
- Incorporation of the EBW into the Firing System adds increased safety against rig-site hazards such
as RF Transmissions, cathodic protection, and stray voltage
Convenient & Cost Effective - The PX-1 EBW fireset allows normal oilfield operation to continue while
perforating and other explosive devices are being utilized
Increased Precision - EBW Detonators increase the precision of initiation as compared to bridge wire
Uses - Provides for safe operation of all Explosive Services including Perforating, Pipe Recovery, Setting
of Bridge Plugs, etc.
