Powergel Seismic is a cap sensitive emulsion explosive which is specifically designed for seismic explorations.
It has high strength, high velocity of detonation and excellent water resistance.
The new formulation Powergel Seismic which have been used by EU Countries and USA since early 2000s, has a high power and high velocity of detonation. It provides to help delivering a clean, point source signal into the surrounding rock. Consistent and reliable shooting generates good signal strengths in varying conditions encountered in geophysical exploration.
HIGH SAFETY FEATURES
Besides its high performance capabilities Powergel Seismic has the highest safety features. It is very safe against initiation by friction and impact. Powergel Seismic is inherently safer than Pentolitte and Dynamite based products due to its reduced impact sensitivity.
Technical Properties given, are the ideal values. The velocity of detonation depends on cartridge diameter and cartridge confinement (confined or unconfined).
Powergel Seismic should be initiated by No.8* electrical seismic detonators or electronic detonators. The product is packaged in rigid plastic shells to withstand the toughest loading situations. A unique proprietary detonator insertion method minimizes detonator wire exposure reducing misfire risk. It should not be initiated under -15 oC.
Powergel Seismic has a storage life up to 12 months in approved magazines.
Powergel Seismic are supplied in 20kg flexible sleeve durable packages.
