Velocity of Detonation Equipment

VIBRONICS, INC. is the United States distributor for the SPEED VOD® TDR Velocity of Detonation (VOD) Recorder. This recorder uses the Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) method to measure the detonation velocity of an explosive product. The unit uses standard coaxial cable that can be easily acquired. A properly conducted Velocity of Detonation test can also provide information such as: consistency of detonation, product contamination or dilution, priming efficiency, stemming/decking efficiency, detonator timing accuracy, and sympathetic detonation. A TDR velocity of detonation recorder can often be used in lieu of or in conjunction with a resistance wire device.
