Simple or complex, Dyno Nobel’s experienced people and specialized services can solve your blasting challenges.
Achieving Economic and Safety Benefits at the Development Face
This trial at the Newmont/Byrnecut Invicta Mine proved that the direct cost of charging development faces using emulsion was similar to that of ANFO with a comparable rate of advance, but with a lower overall total cost of advance.
Cast Blast Modeling
A view to identifying opportunities to improve operations.
Close Proximity Construction Blasting
DynoConsult helped this hydroelectric power station in southern Vermont solve unique construction challenges to increase electric production and efficiency for the town.
Combining Paired Blastholes with Electronic Initiation Systems
Blast patterns designed with paired front row holes to combat excessive burden have proven effective in maintaining strict vibration limitations in close quarters. Better energy distribution in the blast and the reduced potential of energy loss due to hole interruption provides for better digging, enhanced cycle times and better floor conditions.
Controlling Fume Generation with TITAN 9000xero
Dyno Nobel developed TITAN 9000xero to provide a practical, innovative and reliable solution for reducing post blast fume (NOx) when blasting in wet/damp, soft or fractured ground conditions. The product is based on TITAN 9000 emulsion with the inclusion of a bulk additive. The result is a high emulsion content, reduced weight strength bulk explosive. TITAN 9000xero can be delivered through a standard Mobile Processing Unit (MPU) into the blasthole via auger or pump.
Differential Energy in Iron Ore Mining
he use of Dyno Nobel’s new Differential Energy Bulk Delivery Systems technology provides large iron ore mining companies with a unique and innovative bulk emulsion loading approach, that will allow drilling pattern expansion while reducing or maintaining powder factors and explosives costs.
DynoMiner® Advance Streamlines Blasting Efficiency
The Xstrata Nickel Cosmos mining operation in the North Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia is experiencing the benefits of the DynoMiner Advance first hand. Using TITAN® 7000 gassed emulsion technology, the rugged and compact DynoMiner Advance system significantly increased performance and dramatically reduced costs.
Focused Training Alternatives
DynoConsult’s wide range of expertise and knowledge of our customers’ needs provides the format for timely and efficient training on a wide variety of topics that can be tailored to fit site-specific needs.
Improved Shaft Cycle Times
Dyno Nobel and Burnecut-RUC-Thyssen (Telfer) Joint Venture worked together to excavate, support and line a 7.05m diameter vertical shaft to a depth of 1,100m at the Newcrest Mining Limited Telfer Project.
Multiple Priming for Improved Fragmentation
Observations of the blasted material after detonation showed a definite difference in overall fragmentation and oversize. The side of the blast with primers programmed to fire at the same time showed better fragmentation and reduced oversize. Mucking of the blasted material confirmed the initial observations made at the time of the blast event.
