 Developed in Cooperation with Owen Oil Tools for Use in Wireline Perforating Systems

 Chandler, AZ, October 2, 2014 – Pacific Scientific Energetic Materials Company (PSEMC) announced today that Green Det™, a Radio Frequency Safe Detonator alternative developed in cooperation with Owen Oil Tools, will be available in November, 2014.

“Green Det is an RF safe, RSCB technology with a lead-free energetic and small package size for easy drop-in to any wireline perforating system,” said Steve Nelson, Vice President of Business Development, PSEMC, “Green Det works directly with your existing firing panel and switches, therefore no special fireset is required.”

Integrating reactive semi-conductor bridge (RSCB) technology with a proven lead-free energetic called 2-(5-chlorotetrazolato)-pentaammine cobalt (III) diperchlorate (CLCP), the primary application of GreenDet is to initiate non-exposed gun systems while maintaining a high level of safety and reliability at the job site, according to Neal Kerr, Director of Business Development, PSEMC.

Mr. Nelson further remarked: “Green Det permits normal operations to continue even while explosive devices are being used to adhere with the recommended practices outlined in the API RP 67 for oilfield safety.”

Key features include:

  • RF safe per RP-67 – Tested by Franklin Applied Physics Laboratory
  • No special firing panel required: 55V No-Fire/300V All-Fire
  • Hermetically sealed
  • Tested reliability at 400°F for 12 hours
  • Cobalt-based CLCP lead-free energetic
  • 99.99% @ 95%C initiation reliability
  • Smaller package size @ 2.0” x 0.281”
