Titan Takes Reins at EBS

Titan Specialties has acquired EBS, a manufacturer of select fire perforating switches.

The EBS switch system, known as the EB Switch, is a pressureactuated system used in wireline applications to selectively fire a string of two or more perforating guns in a single run.

Titan has been distributing the EB Switch, but this purchase will allow the company to provide:

  • Greater product availability through its network of 16 U.S. distribution centers and 10 domestic and international distributors;
  • Increased inventory levels due to Titan's investment in the product line, which allows for manufacturing expansion;
  • Enhanced system integration with Titan's current line of subs and hardware; and
  • Seamless integration with Titan’s ControlFire™ addressable electronic switch system.

"Adding this product to our line of perforating switch systems, along with the ControlFire system we acquired from Welltec earlier this
year, enables us to provide our customers with an even wider range of options for their perforating needs," said Ken Babcock. "And the increased inventory levels at our distribution centers will give our customers greater access to this product in addition to the complete line of Titan products and support."
