Geo-Nit ANFO is a Booster Sensitive Explosive which is frequently being used in mining and construction where the blastholes are dry and will remain dry until firing
Geo-Nit ANFO is a mixture of porous prilled Amonium Nitrate (Nitrogen ratio 34,50%, Minimum Oil Absorbtion ratio 9%, Prilled AN over 99,50%) and Fuel Oil which is suitable for use where the blastholes are dry and will remain dry until firing.
-does not contain low ratio nitrogen (fertilizer),
-contains diesel oil, not other type of oils,
-has 10-15% more high power and efficiency compared to similar products in the market.
HIGH SAFETY FEATURES
Geo-Nit ANFO is very safe against initiation by friction and impact. It doesn’t cause any headache and/or such type of diseases.
Technical Properties given, are the ideal values. The velocity of detonation depends on cartridge diameter and cartridge confinement (confined or unconfined).
Geo-Nit ANFO should be initiated by cap sensitive explosives such as Powergel Magnum, Powergel Magnum 365 or dynamite. For efficient initiation, primer explosive’s diameter should be closest to the blasthole’s diameter. Furthermore, in order to obtain maximum blasting performance, the length of the primer should be 5 times more than its diameter.
Geo-Nit ANFO has a storage life up to 6 months in approved magazines.
Geo-Nit ANFO are supplied in 25kg PP and PE double layer bags.
