Walker’s has engineered its patented GLF technology and now offers our GLF module in a Sea-Can. The shipping container serves as an envelope to contain the Walker's GLF or GSF (Loaded Gun Storage Facility) module.
The GLF and GSF not only secure explosives and protect assets, it provides an ability to efficiently receive, load and store perforating guns ready for deployment.
The general function of a Sea Can Gun Loading Facility (SGLF) and Sea Can Loaded Gun Storage Facility (SGSF) is to provide an efficient Gun Loading and Loaded Gun Storage operation in secure vault like structures that can be deployed globally.
The SGLF is also designed to mitigate the effects of an accidental explosion in the event of an unplanned detonation reducing risk to unrelated personnel and third party assets.
The Sea Can Gun Storage Facility is similar to the Sea Can Gun Loading Facility except it has no loading table and storage racks are on both sides of the building. Set up end to end with the SGLF it functions as a full loading and storage operation.
The general function of a Sea Can Gun Loading Facility (SGLF) and Sea Can Loaded Gun Storage Magazine (SMAG) is to provide a efficient Gun Loading station in a secure vault like structure that can be deployed globally. The (SGLF) is also designed to mitigate the effects of an accidental explosion in the event of an unplanned detonation reducing risk to unrelated personnel and third party assets.
Walker's Patented (GLF) and Gun Storage Facility (GSF) modular technology assists our customers to:
The Methodology of the Walker's GLF and explosives storage MAG is to reduce the atmospheric pressure and contain debris from a pre-determined blast condition. Computational fluid dynamics modeling "specific to the Net Explosives Quantities (NEQ)" determines the safe distance required from the GLF or GSF.
This standoff distance can be greatly reduced - see charts attached.
Actual size of Standard Sea Can High-Cube GLF Loading Center is (8' Wide x 45' Long x 9'6" High) weight approximately 50,000 lbs.
The Sea Can GSF is similar to the Sea Can GLF but designed without the loading table and with racks on both sides of the building. It has pipe handling / loading doors on the ends of the building to enable quick access to store and move loaded guns.
This is a perfect production combo package with the Sea Can GLF. When the buildings (Sea Cans) are positioned end-to-end, the gun loading, storage and handling operation flows safely, efficiently and secure.
