Perforating safety has long been a driving force within our industry since the introduction of explosives to well completion methods. The rapid proliferation of wireless communication devices potentially increases the possibility of accidental detonation while working with electrically initiated explosives. To meet the demand for increased operating safety, JRC developed the Rig Environment Detaonotor (RED).
Used with top fire perforating systems, and with tubing casing cutters.
The Capsule RED is a high-pressure detonator used in an exposed environment common with capsule guns and string shots. It is rated at 15,000 psi (103 MPA).
Used to ignite gas generator power charges such as chemical casing cutters or packer setting tools.
Used with bottom-fire hollow steel carrier gun systems. Disables when submerged in fluid.
Allows many normal rig operations, such as RF communications, welding, and cathodic protection to continue uninterrupted during perforating
Does not require special surface firing panels or downhole firing units
Reduced connections and leak paths
Provides a simple, economical, “offshore safe” substitute for resistorized hot-wire detonators, EBW, and EFI detonators
Multiple versions with complete line adapters to run with all industry standard hardware
Fires with either positive or negative VDC
Does not use primary explosives
Rated to 375°F (190°C) for 1 hour
Tested RF safe by four industry-recognized testing agencies: Franklin Applied Physics (U.S), Sandia National Laboratories (U.S), ERA Technology Ltd. (U.K), and DNB Engineering Inc. (U.S)
UN Shipping Classification 1.4B
The SCB is a device designed to ignite energetic materials when subjected to a fast discharge current pulse. As a plasma generator for igniting explosives, the device has no equilvalent in terms of reliability. When subjected to intense radio frequency (RF) energy, the device will continuously dissipate up to 5 watts of power without inadvertent ignition. When the SCB is combined with the patented firing/safety circuit, they comprise an electroexplosive device that has an incredibly high immunity to RF energy, stray voltage, and static buildup.
