Explosive Devices - Jet Research Center®

Products & Services

Jet Research Center (JRC) originated and introduced jet perforating to the energy industry-forever changing the way oil and gas are produced. Located on more than 800 acres in Alvarado, Texas, JRC’s Explosive Products Center is a fully integrated research, engineering, testing and manufacturing plant that produces advanced perforating systems and specialty explosive devices for the oilfield, including shaped charge perforators, RF-protected detonators, tubing and casing cutters, severing tools, and platform removal charges.

Research and Engineering
JRC’s premier technical staff includes a balance of engineers, designers, and technicians, who are among the most knowledgeable experts in the perforating industry. Their backgrounds range from doctoral and Master’s level engineers to highly skilled explosive technicians-some with more than 25 years experience. We utilize the latest techniques and equipment in our design work, including:

  • sophisticated hydrocodes such as DYNA-2D and CTH that model the high strain rate deformations of materials subjected to explosive loading.
  • analytical computer programs that predict the response of structures to explosive impulse loads.
  • CHEETAH code for predicting state properties of reacting explosives and the resulting detonation products.
