DISARMCO Thermal Shock Induced Deflagrator (TSID)

The video shows the DISARMCO Thermal Shock Induced Deflagrator (TSID) being used by MAG Vietnam on a Mark 82 (Mk 82) 500 pounds (227kg) low-drag general-purpose bomb. The Thermal Shock Induced Deflagrators (TSID) are designed to neutralise High Explosive (HE) filled munitions. Rapid transfer of heat causes deflagration of the explosive in the target leading to gas over pressure that bursts the casing without a high order. The video shows a successful low order of the Mark 82 bomb.

DRAGON Pyrotorch Video

DRAGON Pyrotorch burning an anti-personnel mine. As the explosive in the mine ignites you can see an obvious change in the colour and intensity of the flame. Towards the end of the clip you can see the detonator/blasting cap explode producing a minor event compared to that of a full demolition using a conventional explosive countermine charge.

The following photographs were taken during EOD training at MAT Kosovo’s EOD & ERW Training establishment, demonstrating and testing Disarmco Thermite systems. The Hot Drop System can be seen being used to attack various targets such as Hand Grenades and RPG’s all resulting in Low Orders.

MAT Kosovo’s EOD & ERW Training establishment and Disarmco are looking forward to their continued partnership over the coming year working closely together to further develop our products.
