Electronic Blasting Systems
As an industry leader in Electronic Blasting Systems, we are constantly working to make our products safer, more reliable and more efficient – enabling your operation to achieve optimal blast results.
Orica has been researching the design and performance of electronic blasting systems since the 1980s. To date, we’ve produced 35 million electronic detonators in our state-of-the-art automated facility in Brownsburg, Canada, with no injuries in manufacturing and use.
Our Next Generation of Electronic Blasting Systems is the culmination of 20 years of laboratory testing and 12 years of in-field use. At the heart of our systems is the electronic timing module. Offering up to 1000x greater accuracy and significantly more timing flexibility than traditional pyrotechnics, it provides greater control of energy. In the right hands, significant productivity gains are possible through: fragmentation improvement, muckpile shaping, vibration control, larger blasts, improved wall/face conditions, and reduced overbreak, damage and ground support.
With a range of Electronic Blasting Systems available, Orica can meet the needs of customers in surface and underground mining, civil tunnel blasting, quarry and construction.
