Safe Fire Systems

Technology is continually evolving in the global marketplace which creates both opportunity and hazards at the well site. Many well site hazards are visible; however, radio frequency hazards that affect the use of explosives are not as apparent. Owen’s Safe Fire Systems are initiating systems immune to the RF hazards that present risk to operations involving resistorized, electric detonators. This technology is used in conditions where concerns over RF energy and stray voltage make it necessary to increase safety precautions by using EBW detonators and accompanying PX-1 firesets.
