Recommendations for Use

  • Suitable for use in watery holes.
  • To be used in gassy coal mines/seams of I/II/III degree for blasting in coal of the Solid Blasting, after it has been depillaring operations.

Charging

Maximum energy of blasthole can be achieved by tamping the explosive with a wooden tamping rod.

Do Not use metal instrument to tamp explosives.

Do Not tamp primer cartridge containing a detonator.

The maximum charge per shot hole for P5 type permitted explosives must not exceed 1000 grams in Degree I mines and 565 grams in Degree II & III mines.

Priming & Initiation

The recommended initiator for Supercoal 5 is a No.6 strength, DGMS approved, non-incendive short delay detonator.

Important

Detonating Cords are not recommended for use with Supercoal 5.

Safety

The post detonation fume characteristics and non incendivity of Supercoal 5 make it suitable for blasting in underground coal applications. User should ensure that adequate ventilation is provided prior to re-entry to the blast site.

Avoid extremes of shock, heat, friction or mechanical impact to prevent pre-mature initiation.

Electric Detonator

Description & Application

The Electric Seismic detonator is an initiator system of explosive charge that can convert an electric into a detonation.

The special configuration of the metallic filament used to manufacture the Seismic Electric Detonator results in low resistance which assures effective high initiation energy. The property of the filament makes it safer in terms of its functionality when compared to other detonators available in the market.

The electric detonator has an electro-pyrotechnical element that can react in less than 1.0 millisecond between the moment required current is applied and detonation takes place. The electro-pyrotechnical element is hosted in an antistatic device. The interior design of the detonator that includes the insensitive electro-pyrotechnical set and the antistatic plug was specially developed to prevent accidental detonation associated with static or erratic electricity.

The Aluminium detonator shell contains a base charge of PETN and Primary Charge of Lead Azide, Lead Styphnate & Aluminium powder. The total amount of explosives in the detonator including primary charge is less than 1 g.

Product would be with copper wire of 0.6 mm diametre. The insulation over copper wire is PE. Lead wire colour can be given any colour preferred by the client.

Destruction

  • The destruction of explosives material is dangerous and require special training. Methods used for safe destruction may vary from case to case and will depend upon conditions under which the operations take place. For further information and to obtain assistance regarding the waste material and obsolete products please contact Solar representative in your area.

General Recommendations for Use

  • Always use shot source that can provide a current flow greater than 10 Amps to the Insensitive Seismic Detonator circuit to optimize blasting in individual boreholes.
  • Always use series connections limiting the number of Insensitive Seismic detonators to 25 and using a reliable electric source that can supply the intensity required for the optimum initiation of the blasting circuit.
  • In general never handle or use electric detonator in the presence of static or erratic electricity or electric storm.
  • Always keep the semiconductor wires the shot wires and the connection circuit in a short cut. Only open the circuit to verify continuity and to initiate the blasting.
  • Never connect the Insensitive Seismic Detonator in the same series line with other electric detonators with different sensitivity or with detonators from another manufacturer since they may have different blasting characteristics and a misfire could take place.
  • The Solar Supreme Seismic Detonator system is not indented for use in gassy environments as underground coal mines and other surroundings where explosives gasses may exist, nor where dust explosion may break out.

Cast Boosters

Description & Application

Booster is made of a high explosive composition cast into a cardboard/plastic shell. Two longitudinal tunnels in the booster accommodate either a signal tube detonator or detonating cord. One tunnel has straight walls while the other is blocked at the top of the booster to provide a stop for the detonator. Detonating cord or signal tube are protected from damage by a recessed well at the base of the booster.

Cast Boosters have a high density and a high velocity of detonation (VOD) to maximize performance.

Cast boosters are reliably initiated by detonators or by detonating cords containing at least 5.0 g/m PETN. These boosters have been specifically designed to provide reliable initiation of pumped, augered and packaged explosives. The main intended application for Cast boosters is for use with ANFO and Bulk explosives.

Technical Properties

Consideration should be given to the type of initiation system used (refer to the relevant Technical Data Sheets).

Recommendations for Use

With Delay Detonators:

Thread the detonator through the booster as shown in Figure 1. After assembly, the top and bottom faces may be taped for additional security against the detonator falling out especially in rough, angled blastholes. Lower the complete assembly to the desired location in the blasthole. Avoid walking on the signal tube or lead wires as this is likely to cause damage. In all applications, ensure that the primer is completely immersed in the explosive it is intended to initiate. This can be achieved by either pulling the primer up into the explosive or suspending the primer above the hole bottom during loading.

Large diameter packaged explosives should be lowered on top of primers, rather than dropped from the blasthole collar. The cord or tube downline should be kept taut during charging and stemming, to prevent damage and minimise abrasion. However, if a primer begins to float on top of a rising column of bulk explosive, temporarily slacken the downline. Once the surface of the explosive column has risen past the primer, tension can be reapplied to the downline.

With Detonating Cord:

Use Cast boosters with any detonating cord which has a PETN charge mass of 5.0 g/m or greater. Ensure the booster is securely attached to the detonating cord by passing the cord down through one tunnel. Tie the cord to form a loop, as shown in Figure 2, then lower the com- plete assembly to the desired location in the blasthole. Cut the detonating cord downline from its reel and adequately secure it at the blasthole collar. Charge the hole with explosives to the design level. For any subsequent boosters on the same downline, unfasten the detonating cord tail and thread the end of the cord through the straight walled tunnel. Re-secure the cord tail, at the collar, and slide or lower the booster to the desired location.

Technical Data

Storage & Handling

Cast boosters have a shelf life of 3 years in good storage conditions. These boosters should be stored in a cool, dry magazine licensed for 1.1D Explosives.

Detonating Cords

Description & Application

Solar Cord comprises an explosive core of PETN encapsulated in a tape winded with a natural or synthetic fibres and finally coated with plastic which makes the product strong, flexible and waterproof. It provides quick, safe and convenient means of simultaneously initiating any number of independent or inter-related charges.

Solar Cord is available with a variety of PETN charge weights designed for different applications.

Solar Cord can be initiated by a No. 6 or No. 8 plain detonator, electric or nonelectric detonator.

Solar Cord with PETN core loads of 10 g/m is most frequently used as downlines in blast-holes either for directly initiating charges or detonator sensitive NG explosives, watergels and emulsions or indirectly initiating columns and decks of detonator insensitive ANFO and non-cap sensitive watergels and emulsions by means of special primers or boosters.

Advantages

  • Solar Cord is a high explosive that must be handled with care and respect at all times. Except for a direct lightning strike, SOLAR CORD detonating cord is unaffected by stray currents generated by electrical storms, power lines and radio/radar transmitters which make electric firing comparatively hazardous. Intense impact or friction can initiate SOLAR CORD, but is insensitive to initiation during normal handling.
  • Solar Cord can detonate if subjected to extremely high temperature, but remains stable and safe to use below 70°C. For temperatures between 70°C and 80°C exposure time should not exceed 24 hours.
  • Solar Cord is an explosives and should therefore be stored in magazines and transported/handled with appropriate care and respect.

Recommendations for Use

  • Solar Cord downlines must be continuous lengths of cord and must never incorporate knots splices inside a blasthole.
  • Solar Cord should be cut using either an anvil type tool or a sharp knife. Cutting devices, which have a shearing action (e.g. scissors), must not be used to cut detonating cords.
  • Solar Cord can be attached to a cartridge of high explosives by simply tying the cord securely around the cartridge. When using SOLARCAST Primers.
  • Solar Cord is threaded through the hole provided permitting a simple, secure way of attachment.
  • A strand of most Solar Cord can be initiated by the detonation of an adjacent strand having a PETN core load of 5 gm/m or greater, provided that the two strands are effectively connected by a suitable knot.
  • When connecting Detonating Cord lines, pull all knots up tightly so that the two lines are in positive contact, and trim the tail ends of the knots off short to prevent them from crossing the trunklines or downlines and causing cut-offs. Keep each connection at right angle as possible to prevent possible cut-off failure that can occur where the downline makes an acute angle back towards the point of initiation of the trunkline. Trunklines can be initiated by an Electric Detonator, a Non Electric Detonator or by a plain detonator crimped with safety fuse. The base end of the detonator is taped to the cord must point in the direction that the detonating cord is required to detonate.
