DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY™

BREAKING GROUND IN COAL MINING, QUARRY BLASTING & METAL MINING RESULTING IN:

Improved Safety 

  • Product is not sensitized until it is delivered to the blasthole
  • Reduces potential for flyrock by placing low density gassed emulsion near the collar and/or areas of low burden
  • Improves highwall stability, a result of accurate control of energy at the crest
  • Thickened emulsion resists flowing into cracks and voids
  • Emulsion densities can be tailored to the hardness of the rock

Increased Productivity

  • Single product for both wet and dry conditions
  • Reduces explosives inventory costs and simplifies budgeting
  • Eliminates need to ship and store blasting agents at the site
  • Blast pattern expansion possible, as a result of higher detonation pressure capabilities in the hole
  • Optimizes quantity of product and minimizes overuse of explosives to achieve desired breakage
  • Precise energy placement for the application, rock hardness, and blast profile
  • Matches energy with geologic requirements to break hard rock seams without damaging coal
  • Performance isn’t compromised by wet conditions or long sleep times compared to ANFO and HANFO
  • Optimizes blast fragmentation for increased productivity, reducing downstream processing costs
  • Improves blasthole loading accuracy and maximizes blast energy efficiency
  • Optimizes blast fragmentation reducing fines and oversize; blast energy is better distributed
  • Reduces wear on loading, hauling, and crushing equipment; fragmentation is more consistent

Safer Environment

  • Minimizes post-blast NOx generation with high performance water resistant emulsion
  • Reduces groundwater contamination because thickened emulsion detonates completely
