Thermotube Lead-in-Line

The Thermotube Lead-in-line product is used for initiating non-electric blasts from a safe distance in surface and underground mining, quarrying, and construction applications. Thermotube operates differently from standard shock tube products containing HMX/Al compounds that produce a shock wave. The signal is transmitted the length of the Thermotube using a high temperature pyrotechnic compound. The resulting product can continue to fire through gaps and tube damage that would cause failures in standard shock tube, thus resulting in fewer failures due to poor splicing or damaged tube.
