Percussion Initiator

Percussion initiator used in tubing conveyed perforating (TCP)

Product Description

The Rapid Deflagrating Material (RDM) initiator provides a deflagrating output which is more suitable to igniting flammable solids and power charges than detonating output devices. This device has a notable brown stripe along the side of the cap so that it won’t be confused with the identically sized CLCP, or also known as CP Detonator.
