Failure of pressure activation devices is a major problem in oil exploration and recovery. Fike has applied over 65 years of experience in rupture disc technology to produce accurate and reliable pressure relief, activation and energetic devices specifically designed to meet the unique needs of oil and gas applications.
Fike has a number of pressure relief devices that have made significant improvements to drilling, completion and production operations — and are now standard in the oilfield industry. But most oil and gas applications are unique, and Fike engineers work closely with customers to design the precise rupture disc or pressure activation device to suit the specific need. Fike oil and gas products, used for pressure relief and activation, help provide efficient, reliable operation of downhole devices, offshore oil drilling equipment and other oil and gas applications.
Fike offers a variety of energetic devices that work with downhole perforating tools, TCP systems and other downhole applications where pyrotechnics are required. Fike energetics are rigorously tested and proven to perform within a wide range of temperatures and other downhole conditions. Fike's team of energetics engineers are experts in the use and manufacture of pyrotechnics, and can design products to meet the requirements of specific OEM partners. In addition, Fike's line of gas generating products give power to downhole applications by creating fast-acting pressure through combustion, using a variety of propellants.
Fike, a globally recognized supplier of products and services that protect people and critical assets from dangers such as fire, explosion and over-pressurization, manufactures solutions for a wide variety of industries. Focusing on innovation and customer service, Fike developed a complete line of products designed for improving drilling and well completion, and now offers these products throughout the world. From designing the right product to the complete support from our customer service and highly-trained technical staff, you can be assured of a quality solution. Let Fike design the precise solution for your unique oil and gas requirements.

A rupture disc, usually referred to as a pressure relief device, is responsible for protecting a vessel, system, or equipment from overpressure events. In those scenarios, the device will open and allow pressure to escape in a controlled way instead of allowing it to build up to dangerous levels.
Those responsible for designing industrial processing plants have to make every precaution when it comes to avoiding potential hazards. In large part, that means preventative measures against excessive pressure build-up within processing equipment through pressure relief devices.
It’s hard to imagine how many things must go right to ensure a successful oil and gas operation. There are thousands, maybe millions, of components working in sync to ensure that wells are operating quickly and efficiently. So when it comes to equipment, only the best will do.
The oil and gas (O&G) industry is associated with more deaths from fires and explosions than any other private industry, according to EnergyWire’s 2014 review of U.S. government labor statistics published in 2014.
The Fike Corporation has a new state-of-the-art test system for validating and verifying downhole components in a controlled test environment. Fike designed the test system to meet the increasing test and validation requirements that the company demands of its products.
Fike Hydraulic Tubing Drains (HTD) for use with deep hole drilling tools, downhole devices and other oil and off shore drilling applications provide an accurate method to equalize the fluid level in tubing strings, without mechanical manipulation. Fike HTD rupture discs, used as standard equipment, drastically reduce the frequency of stuck tubing strings, having to pull wet strings and other oil field equipment and tubing concerns.
The ideal pump-and-plug scenario at a new oil well is a single-stage cementing job performed through the bottom of the casing, with the cement circulating to the top of the target area in the annular space. A uniform layer of cementing is created to support and provide a seal around the surface casing. As a result, drilling can resume.
A common problem in oil and gas drilling, completion and production is the failure of proper activation on downhole tools.
Fike Corporation is excited to announce the contribution of over 50,000 trees to American Forest's Global ReLeaf program.
Fike announces the release of a new design for its HRD Lockout Assembly. This explosion protection product is a mechanical barrier used to prevent an accidental discharge of an explosion suppression container (HRD) into the process vessel during maintenance and cleaning of the vessel and/or protection system.
Fike announces the expansion of its G2 Technology with the introduction of the versatile ATLAS line of rupture discs.
