Spartek Systems Acquires Fireset Business from Ecosse Design

Effective September 1, 2019, Spartek Systems, Inc. has acquired the PX-1 and OM-1 Fireset Business from Ecosse Design, Inc. Ecosse was founded by the late Mr. Jim Ellis in 1996. It was through Jim’s determination and commitment to perforating safety that PX-1 was developed and has since become synonymous with “safe” perforating. The PX-1 was designed primarily for oilfield applications, the PX-1 generates the high-current pulse needed to initiate EBW and EFI detonators. Unlike conventional hot-wire and hot-resistor detonators normally used in oilfield perforating operations, EBW and EFI detonators do not contain sensitive primary explosives such as lead azide. The advantage of EBW and EFI detonators for oilfield use is the fact that they are extremely insensitive to accidental initiation.

Spartek Systems will carry on Jim’s legacy in the industry, by continuing his commitment to providing a high performance, quality product, at competitive prices for the global oil and gas market. Spartek Systems is committed to developing the next generation of safe perforating systems for the industry. “The PX-1 Fireset is a great addition to our product line” said Mathew Schmidt, President and CEO of Spartek Systems. “Our existing electronic firing head, QCT supports the OM-1 fireset, this will further enhance our product offering for the cased hole logging market”.

Founded in 1994, in Sylvan Lake, Alberta Canada, Spartek Systems is a leading independent supplier of technology to evaluate, monitor, and exploit oil and gas assets. The Company develops, manufactures, and markets high-tech surface and subsurface instrumentation for the worldwide petroleum industry. The products developed by the company include quartz and sapphire pressure gauges, wellhead pressure recorders, multi-cycle shut-in tools, electric firing heads, production logging tools, casing inspection tools, permanent monitoring technology, and surface acquisition loggers.
