ID OILTOOLS has chosen to use Owens’ HERO-HR™, SUPER HERO® and HERO® charges, due to their advanced, patented technology liner material, leave a clean perforation tunnel that helps to reduce frac breakdown pressures.

Years ago, in an effort to increase penetration, Owen began adding tungsten to deep penetrating shape charges. Though this did result in considerable improvement, the added tungsten produced undesirable debris that significantly reduced the effectiveness of the perf tunnel volume.

Owen’s patented liner in the HERO-HR™, SUPER HERO® and HERO® charges contain molybdenum, and have improved geometry to yield a larger perf tunnel and prevent spent tungsten from becoming a solid. When it comes to lower break down pressures and putting the frac job away, Owen’s HERO-HR™, SUPER HERO® and HERO® charges give you not only deep penetrating performance, but more effective flow efficiency.


The HERO® Line of Perforating Gun Systems incorporates the latest in ‘New Technology’ developed by Owen Oil Tools and is also certfied under new API RP 19B Standards. Utilizing their patented liner materials and newly developed liner designs, the HERO® line of Gun Systems provides extreme deep penetration without the debris associated with other high density liner materials. Owens’ Perforating Gun Systems offers the industry choices based on their completion design requirements and formation demands.
