Emulsifier works with low density ammonium nitrate.

October 24, 2014

Unaffected by ingredients in porous low density ammonium nitrate (LDAN), ARKOMON XP 1014 enables use of LDAN in emulsion explosives to deliver consistent, reliable blast results. Emulsifier forms emulsions that are stable and water resistant, and emulsion shelf life, measured in weeks, affords users flexibility to store emulsion or account for delays in blasting process. Resulting droplet size promotes velocity of detonation and effective use of available blast energy. Read More

Inline Spark Arrestor cools glowing embers in exhaust duct.

October 24, 2014

By changing characteristics of gas flow through duct from laminar to turbulent flow, SparkBuster cools sparks to within 20°F of gas temperature in duct. Static mixing device is suitable for spark arrestor duty and, under prescribed conditions, will eliminate any sparks and embers from air stream. Available in 4 in. sizes and up, SparkBuster has auto-self-cleaning option and no moving parts. Unit can be installed in both new and existing systems, as well as flanged or clamp-together systems.
