The Direct Pressure Firing Head is designed for well conditions that are not favorable for dropping a detonating bar or where a backup pressure firing head is desirable.
The firing head is assembled to actuate at a predetermined pressure by using precision shear pins. The firing piston is held within the retainer sleeve by these precision shear pins. The number of pins used is based on well conditions and desired safety factor.
Hydrostatic plus applied pressure is used to hydraulically actuate the firing head within ±5% of the calculated values. When the precision shear pins fail at the predetermined pressure, the firing piston drives the firing pin into the percussion initiator which in turn detonates the perforating gun assembly.
