Titan Division of Hunting Energy Services, a subsidiary of Hunting PLC, the international energy services company, today introduced its new ControlFire® Recon cartridge for use in Hunting’s plug-and-play perforating systems.
This inherently safe select-fire initiation device features the latest ControlFire Recon switch pre-assembled to Hunting’s patent-pending modular detonator. With ControlFire Recon technology, the user can interrogate the downhole tool string, including detonator resistance – the first switch on the market to do so. The compact cartridge package allows for simple, wire-free arming at the wellsite, and unparalleled safety and real-time performance during perforating operations.
Compliant with API RP 67 Group 2 initiator requirements, the Recon cartridge is immune to radio frequency, electrostatic discharge and stray voltages up to 500 volts. Hunting’s ControlFire switch has a near 100% success rate, and is viewed as the industry standard in addressable switch technology.
