RF-Safe Green DET™
Warning: Explosives are destructive by nature! Do not attempt
to disassemble or alter the detonator in any manner! Do not crush,
hammer, pinch, impact, pull wires or abuse the detonator or any
explosive!
Warning: Be sure to follow safe operating practices as found in
API RP-67 in accordance with governmental regulations, company
policies and manufacturer’s recommendations!
Owen Oil Tool’s and Pacific Scientific’s RF-Safe Reactive Semi-Conductor Bridge (RSCB) Detonators
are designed to detonate a lead free energetic material when an electrical voltage greater than 55
volts is applied. This allows the detonator to be fired with any standard 300V / 2A firing panel in
wireline operations. The RF-Safe RSCB Detonator is manufactured to API RP-67 recommendations
and has been tested and verified by Franklin Applied Physics to withstand up to 10 GHz frequency at
100 V/m field strength. This detonator will withstand temperatures of -40oF to 400oF for 1 hrV while
still maintaining a 99.99% initiation reliability @ 95% confidence. For more technical information
regarding this detonator, please refer to Owen Oil Tool’s “Technical Specifications” sheet (Owen
Document #2-300750-1-DS)
Green DET™ with Crimp Sleeve Accessory (DET-0010-074):
When used with the green “crimp sleeve” accessory (P/N DET-0010-074), the Green DET™ is
designed to be used in hollow steel carrier or scalloped gun systems where a fluid disabled
detonator will prevent the detonation of a flooded gun when used properly. Fluid migrating through
the fluid holes in the body of the crimp sleeve will prevent the detonator from initiating the
detonating cord. The detonator and crimp sleeve accessory is designed to be used with the
following detonating cords:
•
80gr./ft. PETN*
*Not fluid disabled or interruptible w/PETN detonating cord.
•

1.0 Procedures for Panel Setup and Firing Green DET™
1.1
Prior to arming or gun make up:
• Measure the voltage output from the panel with a digital blasters multi-meter at the
cablehead, CCL, or Quick-Change. Verify a minimum of 300V DC output can be applied
from the panel to the meter.
Note: Mark the location of the needle on the voltage meter panel
when 300V DC is applied to the multi-meter. This location will indicate
that you are applying 300V DC to the gun string.
1.2
Reset panel to safe mode.
1.3
Continue proper assembly of toolstring.
1.4
When ready to fire the gun or detonator downhole, increase the power to the firing circuit
from 0V DC to the marked needle location that corresponds to 300V DC. The detonator will
fire anywhere between 55V and 300V.
Note: The user will not see any current being applied to the detonator
when ramping up on the rheostat dial. However, the voltage should
continue to ramp up until the detonator fires.

2.0Arming
Warning: Detonators should only be removed from their VWRUDJH
and LQGLYLGXDOSDFNDJLQJ in the loading/arming area at the time of
arming! Always insert the detonator inside an Owen Detonator
Safety Tube (Part # DET-2000-000) after removal from packaging
and storage!
Note: An electrical check of the detonator’s firing circuit may be
conducted while the detonator is confined within a safety tube. Using
electrical blasters multi-meter, the RF-Safe Green DET™ will measure
between from 0.800 MΩ to 1.100 MΩ
2.1 RF-Safe Detonator with Crimp Sleeve Accessory:
2.1.1 Remove both the Green DET™ (P/N 2-300750-1) and green, stainless steel crimp sleeve
(P/N DET-0010-074) from their packaging. Keep the detonator shunted during handling.
2.1.2 Slide the green, stainless steel crimp sleeve onto the output end of the detonator making sure
to slide the end with the slits onto the detonator. The figure below shows an example.

Make sure the crimp sleeve sits flush with the shoulder of the detonator. The crimp sleeve should be
snug on the detonator. The finished product should look like this:
2.1.3 Insert the detonator into a detonator safety tube (P/N DET-2000-000) and secure the lid shut.
The resistance may be checked at this time.
2.1.4 Make sure panel is safe, key is removed and outside the unit, and verify no voltage is
measured on the wireline.
2.1.5 With the detonator still in the safety tube, electrically connect the detonator to the wireline
cable by attaching the red wire to hot lead and the blue wire to ground. The detonator is
now electrically armed, and it may now be removed from the safety tube.
2.1.6 Carefully make a square, clean cut of the detonating cord using the Owen Super Cutters (P/N
DET-0000-036). Insert the newly cut end of the detonating cord into the open end of the crimp
sleeve until it becomes flush with the fluid hole (see figure below). If using 40 gr/ft Ribbon
detcord, then use Owen’s detcord adapter (P/N DET-0010-006). The fluid hole should not be
filled or covered by explosive powder, detonating cord, tape, etc. as this could prevent the
detonator from being fluid disabled. Crimp the cord in place in a 3/8 in. (0.95cm) area from
the end of the crimp sleeve using Owen Super Crimpers (P/N DET-0100-053). The detonator
is now ballistically armed, and the finished product should look something like the figure
