Platinum Blasting Services now has two dewatering units in the Bowen Basin. Both Dewaterers are equipped to compliment blasting operations being also fully compliant and authorised shot firing vehicles.
The units have been in demand over recent months saving our customers significant money.
What is the purpose of a dewatering unit?
By dewatering blastholes customers are able to replace expensive wet hole products with cheaper augered heavy ANFO’s. This coupled with loading times for augered products being significantly faster than pumped wet hole products, substantially reduces real blasting costs.
With the Bureau of Meteorology predicting an above-average number of cyclones for the 2016-17 Australian tropical cyclone season it is expected that the demand for these units will remain high.
