Teledyne RISI specializes in the manufacture of precision secondary explosive components
including initiators and detonators utilizing the Exploding Bridgewire
(EBW) and Exploding Foil (EFI) concepts. EBW and EFI devices manufactured
by Teledyne RISI contain no primary explosives such as are commonly used in blasting
Both the EBW and EFI concepts rely on the rapid discharge of electrical
energy to vaporize a wire or foil to directly initiate a secondary explosive.
EBW and EFI detonators are immune to accidental initiation by radio transmission,
static charges or proximity to high tension wires.
Teledyne RISI also distributes and manufactures a wide selection of Electronic
Firing Systems for use in initiating EBW and EFI detonators in the field
