Dyno Nobel, a leader in commercial explosives, has released its EZshot® EZDet (EZD) series for surface blasting.
These new units consist of a green shock tube with a surface detonator attached to one end and a high-strength (#12) in-hole electronic detonator on the other, Dyno Nobel says. The surface detonator is set inside of a color-coded plastic EZ™ Connector block to facilitate easy connections to shock tube leads and can hold up to six shock tube leads.
Easy-to-read, colour-coded delay tags display the delay number and nominal firing time prominently to ensure ease-of-use, the company added.
Units can be easily connected to one another to satisfy basic blast design requirements in quarry, mining and construction operations, according to Dyno Nobel. They can also be used in combination with NONEL®MS, NONEL EZTL™ and/or NONEL TD detonators for complex blast design requirements and to minimise inventory of initiation system components.
