Blue Springs, MO, December 17, 2010 - Fike announced today it has received CE Marking on its Percussion Initiator and Time Delay Fuse products, part of Fike's specialized line of energetic devices that work with oil and gas downhole operations. GB Explosives Notified Body (ENB), which operates within the Health and Safety Laboratory, offers an independent, specialized technical service in the assessment and certification (CE-marking) of explosives within the scope of the European Directive 93/15/EEC.
Fike's Percussion Initiator is a device typically used in Tubing Conveyed Perforating (TCP) operations to initiate the detonation chain of perforating guns for the completion of oil and gas wells.
