Firing Heads
Detonation Interruption Device (page 3)
The Detonation Interruption Device provides added safety for the VannSystem® service by helping to prevent firing at surface conditions. The detonation device contains eutectic metal that has a very low melting point. When the metal is in a solid state, the firing head could detonate, but the explosive train will not transmit through the interrupt device to the guns.

Time-Delay Firer (page 10)
The Time-Delay Firer (TDF) allows under- or overbalanced perforating through the use of a pressure-actuated firing head with a time delay fuse. With the delay fuse, there is time for adjusting the actuating pressure in the tubing to achieve the desired pressure before firing the guns.

Multiaction-Delay Firing Head (page 11)
The Multiaction-Delay Firing Head is a pressure-actuated redundant firing system that can be run with any one of several other firing heads.

Mechanical Firing Head (page 4)
The extended Mechanical Firing Head (MFH) is a special application tool that should only be used when well conditions preclude use of an alternate firing device.

Annulus Pressure Firer-Control Line (page 12)
The Annulus Pressure Firer-Control Line (APF-C) was developed as a dual-firing system that allows the perforating guns to be detonated by annular pressure, a drop bar, or tubing pressure. The APF-C system consists of a pressure transfer reservoir, a sleeve through the packer mandrel, an adapter below the packer, and a control line to transmit pressure from the annulus above the packer to the APF-C firing head assembly on top of the guns. Any of the mechanical or pressure-firing heads can be attached to the top of the APF-C firing head.

Model II-D and III-D Mechanical Firing Head (page 5)
The Model II-D and III-D Mechanical Firing Heads are pressure-assisted mechanical firing heads. The detonating bar strikes the firing pin, releasing the firing piston. Hydrostatic pressure then forces the firing piston into the initiator.

Pressure-Actuated Firing Head (page 7)
The Pressure-Actuated Firing Head can run with small OD tubing or coiled tubing to detonate small OD perforating guns and is detonated by applied pressure.

Annulus Pressure Transfer Reservoir (page 13)
The Annulus Pressure Transfer Reservoir (APTR) is an integral component of the APF-C. It is the mechanism that transmits pressure from above the packer to a differential pressure or pressure-actuated firing head on top of the perforating assembly.

Model K Firing Head (page 8)
The Model K Firing Heads were developed for conditions that are unfavorable for dropping a detonating bar in a horizontal well. The Model K Firing Head is a pressuresensitive tool designed to hydraulically detonate at a prescribed pressure. These firing heads use tubing pressure applied to a piston-type firing pin.

Slimhole Annulus Pressure Firer—Internal Control (page 14)
The Slimhole Annulus Pressure Transfer Reservoir (APTR) system assembles in a similar manner to the 7-in. and 9 5/8-in. APTR systems. Only two design changes have been implemented in the new 5-in. APTR system. First, a series of concentric tubes below the packer replaces the control line from larger APTR systems. Second, a single tube mandrel runs through the packer, replacing the series of threaded tube mandrels from the larger APTR systems.

Model KV-II Firing Head (page 9)
Combining a firing head with a vent assembly, the Model KV-II Firing Head makes firing of the guns and opening of the vent one operation instead of two. This tool allows the operator more accurate control of when the vent opens in relation to when the guns fire.

Differential Firing Head (page 15)
The Differential Firing Head was designed to allow underbalanced perforating with a differential pressureactuated firing system. The firing head works by requiring the internal pressure to be greater than the external pressure. This condition can be created when pressure is applied to the ID or when the OD pressure is reduced. The pressure required to actuate the firing head may be lower than that used for other pressure-operated firing heads because it is operated by differential pressure.

Slickline-Retrievable Time-Delay Firer Firing Head (page 20)
The Slickline-Retrievable Time-Delay Firer (TDF) Firing Head combines two assemblies—the slickline-retrievable firing head and a 1 11/16 in. TDF firing head. It is a pressureactuated firing head with built-in pyrotechnic time delay.

Extended Delay Fuses (page 21)
Delay fuses are explosive devices with a slow burning fuse. Extended and modular delay fuses add time between the actuation of the firing head and the actual detonation of the guns. Each delay fuse lasts for six minutes at 70°F.

Hydraulic Actuator Firing Head and Swivel-Type Hydraulic Actuator Firing Head (page 16)
The Hydraulic Actuator Firing Head (HAF) is a pressurebalanced tool that automatically fills the tubing string while it is running in the well. A stainless steel ball is dropped from the surface or circulated into position. Pressure applied to the tubing string actuates the HAF. A smaller Swivel-Type Hydraulic Actuator Firing Head incorporates a swivel into the firing head assembly, which allows the lower portion of the firing head and the attached explosive assembly to rotate independently from the tubing string.

Modular Mechanical Firing Head (page 22)
Mechanical Firing Head is designed to be a retrievable firing system utilizing a standard mechanical firing head with a specialized drop bar for detonation. This system will allow the operator the flexibility to run the gun assemblies independently of the firing system. Once the guns are in place, the firing head is set on the top module and released. The perforation assembly is detonated by use of a special fluted bar dropped from surface.

Mechanical Metering Hydraulic-Delay Firing Head (page 17)
The Mechanical Metering Hydraulic-Delay Firing Head provides a retrievable firing system with an adjustable delay for situations where longer delay times are needed. Delay time can be adjusted and is affected by temperature, tool weight above the piston, the number of jets used, and the amount of fluid in the tool.

Side-Pocket Mandrel Firing Head (page 24)
The Side-Pocket Mandrel Firing Head is useful in well conditions when the use of a pressure-actuated firing head run with a Y-block is not possible. Side-pocket systems are used on single-string, multi-zone completions as well as standard dual completions. A Model III-D mechanical firing head is attached to the short string side of the mandrel and the firing head is detonated with a kickover tool run on slickline.

Slickline-Retrievable Mechanical Firing Head (page 18)
The Slickline-Retrievable Mechanical Firing Head is designed to give customers flexibility in completing a well. It can be run attached to the guns, separately from the guns, or using an auto-release firing mechanism. The firing head latches onto the guns and provides a positive indication that it is attached. The system can be run with a mechanically operated head or a pressure-operated head. It is designed so 80% of the parts are used in all three applications allowing for more flexibility with less inventory.

Annulus Pressure Crossover Assembly (page 26)
The Annulus Pressure Crossover Assembly allows the use of annulus pressure to actuate any one of several firing heads. The assembly is compatible with retrievable packers of all types and sizes.
