Have these systems been tested in real life applications?
Blast Control’s products have successfully passed perforation and ballistic limit testing conducted by numerous independent third-party organizations. The parameters of these tests were formulated to specifically replicate various projectiles launched from failure of pressurized equipment utilized in industrial operations such as oil and gas. Our barriers have been impacted with projectiles ranging in size from one half inch diameter up to six inch diameter and at pressures up to 17,000 psi without failure. The barriers have been successfully tested against high pressure fluid jet at 24,000 psi. They’ve also successfully mitigated shrapnel from IEDs and RPGs detonated at point blank range. Additionally, Blast Control maintains in house live-fire testing capabilities utilized in ongoing R&D and product enhancement.
