DigiShot® Plus.4G is the industry's most advanced electronic initiation system.
Better Fragmentation, Blast Consistency and Expanded Pattern with DigiShot® Detonators
Dyno Nobel proposed a solution using DigiShot® electronic detonators to decrease oversize, fines and tight digging. The solution included less holes, less powder and higher powder factors. A drone video was taken to study movement and lift of blast.
Comparison of Fragmentation Results by Varying Time Between Top and Bottom Primers
Study conducted to find optimal delay timing for this granite quarry
DigiShot® Plus Spooled Wire Reduces Loading Problems
Many blasters have different ways to deploy the wire into the blast holes. The 30° angled holes with an Emulsion/ANFO blend coating the footwall side of the hole makes it difficult to deploy the primer assembly smoothly. A better way to deliver the primer assembly into the blast hole was needed.
Electronic Detonators to Increase Underground Production Rates
Lac des Iles mine, in Canada, was wanting to expand its underground operations and increase its underground production rates.
Expansion of Quarry Using TITAN® 1000 LD and DigiShot® Plus
Surrounded by numerous communities, the Graymont Marbleton Quarry was looking to expand its quarry number six.
Increasing Tunnel Advance Rates with Dyno Nobel Initiation System
Procon Group was challenged to meet their tight tunnel advance schedule. DigiShot® electronic initiation system was found to reduce overall per meter advance with less over break, increased advance rates, and fewer booted holes to drill around.
Making Way for Increased Production of Hydroelectric Power
The team set out to drill and blast as much rock as possible to avoid the use of time consuming and costly mechanical rock breaking techniques. In addition, the rock needed to be excavated without excessive vibration damage to the existing electrical substation or the 100-year-old concrete dam.
Minimizing Off Site Blast Effects
By using site-specific seismic modeling that determined optimum firing sequences on a shot by shot basis, off-site vibration effects were minimized and additional gains in overall blast efficiency led to better fragmentation, faster truck cycle times, reduced oversize, increased pattern geometry, elimination of decking and the ability to increase shot size.
Reduced Protection in Blasting Due to Better Control of Loading
DynoConsult was called in to determine best course of action for resuming operations.
Reducing Costs of Retrieving Low Alkali Aggregates in NY Quarry
The project scope was to segregate and remove a high alkali chemistry area, post one bench blast event, leaving good quality aggregate material for cement production.
Reducing Regulatory Community and Liability Exposure with DigiShot® and Waveform Anlaysis
Taking advantage of the flexibility and precision of the DigiShot® electronic initiation system and using alternative timing sequences designed through signature waveform analysis, one northeast U.S.A. quarry operator was able to reduce peak particle velocity values by over 50%. Reductions in ground vibration were realised without the loss of productivity, blast size, or fragmentation.
Signature Hole Analysis & DigiShot® Plus Reduce Blasting Complaints
Matching delay firing times to the local geology eliminates neighbor complaints while improving productivity.
Use of Dyno Nobel Blast Design, DigiShot® Detonators and DYNOSPLIT® C
This Northeast aggregate quarry typically blasts using 6.5” holes on a large pattern for their aggregate needs. Future plans include moving the primary crusher from the current location into the pit. This would require a clean final wall for traffic safety.
