Transport

UN classification 1.1 D, UN 0241. Explosive, Blasting. Type E.

Performance

Anfo is an oxygen-balanced mixture of prilled porous ammonium nitrate and fuel oil (at ratio of 94.3% AN, 5.7% FO), manufactured with total process control. It is not water resistant.

High safety features

Anfo, in comparison with other explosives containing nitroglycerine is more resistant to initiation by both friction and impact. Furthermore, during storage and using, it does not cause headache or other health problems.

Product range

Anfo is packed 25 kg’s and 50 kg’s in double layer bags. For special applications, other sizes range can be produced.

Armdet HTD

Armdet HTD non-electric, short delay, trunk lines assemblies provide out of hole delays in non-electric blast patterns. Used in conjunction with Armdet MS in-hole shock tube detonator assemblies, Armdet HTD assemblies provide flexibility in blast design and ease of use. They can be used in quarries, surface coal operations, open pit and underground mines and construction projects to provide accurate surface timing.

Armdet HTD Storage

For best results, store under moderate temperatures and dry conditions in a well-ventilated, approved detonator magazine. The manufacturer guarantees the quality of the product for a two-year period if stored in appropriate conditions.

Hazardous Materials Shiping Description

Detonators Assemblies, Non-electric, Class and Division 1.1 B, UN 0360, PG II EX 9106258.

Armdet HTD assemblies have 4 main components:

  • Low-power capsule assembled in the interior of a surface connector. 
  • An green shock tube, which conveys the signal to the delay capsule. When the tube is initiated, it transmits through the interior a low-energy shock wave, which initiates the delays inside the capsule.
  • Label delay element that indicating the serial number, nominal time, the length of the tube and the lot number associate with the date of manufacture, giving the user the reliability of the process of tracking and/or traceablility for each unidirectional surface connector. 
  • Cobra connector, which allows connection between the detonating cord and the non-electric tube, if required.

High safety features

Armex 750 in comparison with other explosives containing nitroglycerine and nitroglycol is more resistant to initiation by both friction and impact and much safer. Furthermore, during storage and using, it does not cause headache or other health problems.

Initiation and charging

Armex 750 in all diameters, is initiated by cap sensitive explosives such as Armex Power or Armex Power Plus. If the cartridge is slit from sides during the charging, the hole diameter will be covered, completely with the explosive and this will increase the blasting performance.

Effective performance

The new formulation Armex Power Plus emulsion explosives are based upon unique technology. The use of this advanced technology means that the non-explosive ingredients are so intimately mixed as to produce exceptional shock and heave characteristic and subsequently very effective rock breakage. In addition, after detonation, fume properties are excellent.
