How Rapid Deflagration Cord Transfer Line Works
The Rapid Deflagration Cord Transfer Line (RDCTL) offers a robust design with flexibility required in modern emergency escape systems. That flexibility includes smaller diameter for easier routing, an assortment of end tips for various input and output combinations (LE- Low Energy, HE- High Energy, PP- Percussion Primer), high tolerance to extreme environmental conditions and durable materials to meet the physical demands of emergency egress systems. RDCTLs use the basic Rapid Detonation Cord (RDC) confined in an outer casing compromised of braids and extrusions or a metal tube with end fittings for a sealed system.
RDC’s are designed in a number of different configurations. The outer construction can be enhanced using braided fiberglass, Kevlar and polyurethane for maximum confinement in a flex application to an aluminum or stainless steel tube for form-able, but semi-fixed, routing conditions.
