Encroachment in existing industrial areas is causing significant location issues to many industries. Not only is the safety of these locations in question, but also their security.
The blast resistant design of our magazines is what makes our product truly unique. The structural engineering and blast pressure relief systems have been designed to minimize the effects on the surrounding environment. Through testing, modeling and documentation, we have achieved a reduced Quantity-Distance ratio (Q.D. ratio).
If you are a low NEQ (Net Explosive Quantity) user and you are dealing with public encroachment issues on your storage facility, a Walker's magazine will reduce your Q.D. Our Magazines are also government recognized with site approvals in U.S.A and Canada.
Specially developed loading tables reduce working hazards and help increase productivity. Our innovative loading systems enables workers to load guns with minimal movement of the energetic materials.
The loaded guns are easily and safely transferred for storage or transport. A ‘Processing Flow’ and ‘Safe Work Procedures Guide’ are provided with the building.
The Magazine doors located on either end of the building are designed to exceed current industry security standards. Rear doors allow loaded guns to be moved directly out of the facility from its loading tables.
The front pipe handling doors are equipped with three levels of live rollers providing easy access for loading or unloading the perforation guns with minimal effort.
The Magazine doors located on either end of the building are designed to exceed current industry standards in both Canada and the U.S.A. for explosive storage. Rear doors allow loaded guns to be moved directly out of the facility from its loading tables.
The portable solution provides companies with an opportunity to save time and money over traditional loading and storage methods. This is a better alternative than moving your entire operations.
The GLF has been tested to exceed the safety standards for processing areas (loading bays), explosive storage and loaded gun storage. The first solution of its kind to be licensed by the ATF and N.R.Can for reduced Q.D (safe distance to the public).
Pipe handling and storage racks are standard with all GLF's. The attached internal live rollers make it easy to transfer carriers ranging in size from 1-6 meters (3-20 feet) with minimal effort.
The Perforating Gun Loading Facility meets and exceeds the highest standards for explosive storage and security used in North America. All of the materials needed to assemble a perforating gun can be secured in one location.
This magazine is the first portable GLF designed specifically for the oil and gas industry. The ability to take a loading facility to virtually any site has tremendous time saving advantages. With a reduced Q.D. available and no need for environmental impact assessments, you can minimize many of the logistical challenges.
For your overseas projects, we have shipping container sized GLF's making it easy to ship anywhere worldwide.
