On the following pages you will find real world success stories highlighting the work Dyno Nobel has done to deliver innovative products and groundbreaking performance for our customers. To find stories on specific products or solutions, use the magnifying class (search bar) above.
Breakthrough in Cave Propagation
Dyno Nobel, together with Harmony and 360 Drilling, developed an innovative drill and blast solution to promote cave propagation and improve safety. Taking into consideration the mine’s unique features, Dyno Nobel’s expertise showed how a smart design with HotShot® electronic detonators would allow the span to be increased.
Camera Investigation of Explosive Weight per Blast Hole Overload
The integrity of the blast hole was investigated with a special blast hole camera to determine if the additional emulsion was a result of seams or voids.
Cast Blast Modeling
A view to identifying opportunities to improve operations.
Centralised blasting increases production by eliminating downtime before and during blasting
BlastWeb is a centralised blasting system that is specifically designed for use in underground mining operations and allows reliable remote initiation of development, production and stope blasting from a safe and controlled location on the surface.
Centralised Blasting Systems - An approach to Safety, Functionality and Efficiency
The implementation of Dyno Nobel's Centralised Blasting System supports both the safety of the mine employees during blasting and the elimination of misfires due to communication errors at firing time.
Clean Face and Higher Frequencies
The DynoConsult® representative conducted a signaturehole analysis to determine the appropriate timing using DYNO 42™ software. Following the analysis, a shot was executed using electronic detonators and the most appropriate timing recommended by DYNO 42.
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.
Collaboration with DroneDeploy Leads to Mine Mapping
Most mine mapping, face profiling and volumetric analysis performed is done using reflector-less scanning laser systems or photogrammetry using calibrated 35mm digital cameras.
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.
