DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® technology breaks new ground in metal and coal mining; improving safety, productivity and environmental outcomes.
DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® Applied to Improve Fragmentation
Optimising fragmentation to improve downstream operations
DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® Drives Efficiencies in Australian conditions
DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® trials in Australia have shown productivity gains of up to 30% compared to standard MPUs and products.
Differential Energy® in Surface Gold Mining
Dyno Nobel’s TITAN 1000∆E was trialed over a period of four (4) months at AngloGold Ashanti's Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Co. (CC&V) in Cripple Creek, Colorado.
DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® in Truck Shovel Overburden
As part of a continuous improvement process, DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® has been introduced in the Truck/Shovel areas of the pit for trials. Multiple areas have been tested utilizing different densities on the top and bottom of the hole. The holes were then loaded with the same amount of explosives, or less, but due to the lower densities the explosives column height has been increased to improve energy distribution in the blast hole.
DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® Technology Applied in Iron Ore Mining
Measured results confirmed that significant value in productivity, cost and blast performance were delivered. The mine reduced its overall powder factor by 18%, realized an 8% increase in shovel productivity in both waste and ore, and in the case of ore, experienced no reduction in crusher throughput. Additionally, they completely eliminated visible NOx after blast fumes in even the wettest areas of the pit.
DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® Technology Improves Fragmentation by 52.7%
Using an optimization study that covered a 20-month period in 2014 and 2015, the client found a high percentage of fines in the blasted stone. The client called in DynoConsult® to help study the reasons and find a cost effective solution.
Step Change Results in Significant Value Added Solution
Reducing slumping, NOx, and overall costs while maintaining load rates using TITAN® XL 1000 and DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY®
