HOW A PERCUSSION INITIATOR WORKS

The 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.

Applications

Designed with the same oilfield expertise you can trust , the RDM initiator is a proven reliable percussion initiator for TCP perforating guns.
