Advanced Blasting Technology Inc Surefire Shock Tubing Exploder
Surefire: A Reliable Way of Initiating Shock Tubing

ProductsContact UsHome


Existing methods of initiation rely upon explosive primer systems which are often unreliable and inconvenient to use. The Surefire Exploder generates a discharge right inside the shock tube, initiating with great reliability.

When in use, the open end of the shock tube lead-in line is inserted into the initiation tip of the unit with the central electrode inserted into the shock tube.
