Abstract: Shock tube initiators were originally invented in the 1960’s by PerAnders Persson of Nitro Nobel. Ever since, few researchers reported the developments of various shock tube designs. These include single, double, and triple-layered structures. Since its invention, the shock tube has been widely used in mining and quarrying operations, and is considered today as a crucial component of blasting systems. This paper presents a review on the progressive development of shock tube initiators. The properties and performance indicators of typical commercial high performance shock tubes are also disclosed
