Exel™ MS detonators are a series of full strength nonelectric detonators with millisecond (MS) delay intervals between successive firing times. The detonator assemblies consist of a non-electric detonator and a length of Exel™ signal tube.
Exel™ MS detonators from Orica Sweden use the NPED (Non Primary Explosives Detonator) technology and are  therefore free of lead azide. 

The detonators have an aluminium shell and an initiation output strength of a Reference Detonator #3. The Exel™ shock tube is a high strength and abrasion resistant tubing, which transmits the initiation signal to the detonator. One end of the shock tube is crimped into the detonator shell, and the other end is closed off by a waterproof seal.

Exel™ MS detonators  are typically used in combination with Exel Connectadet™ surface delay connectors. In these applications all blast holes are charged with Exel™ MS in-hole detonators with the same delay time. The initiation sequence is then determined on the surface by means of the surface delay connectors.

Exel™ MS detonators provide a series of delay times suitable for surface mining, quarrying and underground operations.

Exel™ MS detonators will directly initiate cap sensitive boosters and packaged explosives. Refer to the relevant Technical Data Sheets for details.
