Initiating systems

BME manufactures and supplies a range of initiating systems which are available for various applications. Not all products in the series are listed below. For more information,lengths,configurations or special requirements please contact us.

 
  • VIPERDET™ LP

    VIPERDET™ LP assemblies consist of a specific length of green shock tube with a high strength delay detonator crimped to the one end and closed at the other end by means of an ultra-sonic seal. A detonating cord connector clip is attached to the sealed end, with a marked colour label indicating the delay number. LP detonators can be initiated by a single strand of detonating cord with a loading strength from 3.6 g/m to 8 g/m. Colour coded labels are used to distinguish different delay periods.

  • VIPERDET™ MS

    VIPERDET™ MS assemblies consist of a specific length of green shock tube with a millisecond delay detonator crimped to the one end and closed at the other end by means of an ultra-sonic seal. A label marked with the specific delay is attached to the shock tube within 10 cm from the seal. Colour coded labels are used to distinguish different delay assemblies from each other. A colour coded connector clip is attached to the detonator for easy connection to other shock tube assemblies. The connector can hold between 1 and 6 shock tubes and is designed to ensure easy connection, reliable initiation, while minimising shrapnel damage to the shock-tube.

  • VIPER BOOSTERS™

    VIPER BOOSTERS™ consist of an explosive charge of high strength and high detonation velocity, designed to be used in the explosive initiation sequence between an initiator or primer and the main charge, mostly non cap-sensitive blasting agents. Cast Viper Boosters™ are enclosed in a cylindrical printed shell and contain a mixture of RDX and TNT. A PETN capsule positioned internally near the detonator well ensures reliable initiation when using 3.6 g/m detonating cord.
