Platinum releases Hydra product range

Platinum Blasting is pleased to introduce Hydra, a premium range of blasting products.

 

What is Hydra?

Hydra is a range of products designed and developed by Platinum for use within the blasting industry. The first two releases HydraFlow and HydraForce now available on the market for use.

 

  HydraForce HydraFlow
Product Description HydraForce is an emulsion doped HANFO (Heavy ANFO) blend designed to be suitable for dry or dewatered blast blastholes. HydraFlow is a sensitised emulsion blend designed to be suitable for pumping into blast holes containing water. Sensitising agents are added by the MPU during the manufacturing and pumping process.
Application HydraForce has been designed for use in open cut mining where additional energy is desired or where a level of water resistance is required.  The product is also suitable to use in dry or dewatered blastholes.  Prior to use in dewatered blastholes the water recharge rates should always be determined.

HydraForce is not suitable for use in areas containing reactive sulphides or in blastholes with temperatures in excess of 55 degrees Celsius.

HydraFlow has been designed for use in open cut mining where wet mining conditions are encountered. The product is also suitable to use in dry or dewatered holes.

HydraFlow is not suitable for use in areas containing reactive sulphides or in hole temperatures in excess of 55 degrees Celsius.

Benefits Suitable for application in dewatered or dry blastholes.

Density and energies can be varied by modifying the ANFO:Emulsion ratio to suit the specific application.

Full coupling of the explosive charge provides superior blasting results.

Product is delivered via an MPU auger.

Suitable for application in wet, dewatered or dry holes.

Density and energies can be varied to suit the specific application.

Full coupling of the explosive charge provides superior blasting results.

Can be pumped through a range of hose sizes to suit blast hole diameter.

 

What’s coming?

We are currently testing and developing new and exciting additions to the Hydra range which will provide innovative solutions for the blasting industry.
