Orica’s world-leading Bulk Systems integrate products, manufacturing, logistics, equipment and technical expertise, to create Bulk Explosives and deliver them safely and efficiently into the blasthole.

Bulk Explosives play a critical role in mining, quarrying and construction operations, providing the energy to move a rock mass and reduce it to an optimal size. When it comes to energy, Orica’s Bulk Explosives offer the broadest range of energy on the market.

With Bulk products ranging from less than half, to almost triple the Relative Bulk Strength of ANFO, alongside increased flexibility in Velocity of Detonation, customers have greater choice and unprecedented control of blasting outcomes.

Through the correct selection and application of Orica Bulk Explosives, customers can make significant improvements to many aspects of their operations, including productivity, safety, production volatility, environmental management, and capital intensity.

 

Orica’s Bulk Explosives range is comprised of: Flexigel™, ANFO, Fortis™, Fortan™, Aquacharge™, Centra™, Civec™, Subtek™, Vistis™ and Vistan™ – and includes products for both surface and underground applications. The range includes specific formulations for reactive ground, hot ground, fume prone ground, longer sleep times, deep holes, and greater heave, just to name a few.

 

Our extensive range combined with Orica’s technical expertise means we can tailor a solution to match our customers’ geologies and end use requirements.

When combined with the precision timing of Orica’s Electronic Blasting Systems and the technology and tools that Orica offers, Orica’s Bulk Explosives have the potential to deliver real value to our customers’ operations.

Orica recommends testing proposed and current mining areas for reactivity between Sulphide minerals and Ammonium Nitrate prior to the use of explosives. Please refer to Australian Explosives Industry Safety Group (AEISG) Code of Practice for Elevated Ground Temperature and Reactive Ground.
 
The AEISG & Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI) have each published industry best practice guidelines for fume management and prevention.
