HIGH PURITY HYDROCARBON FLUIDS FOR AMMONIUM NITRATE EXPLOSIVES : BLASTANE

The BLASTANE range


Compared to the hydrocarbon fluids commonly used in ammonium nitrate explosives, our BLASTANE range offers significant HSE benefits and a real value added for nitrate of ammonium explosives producers:

  • Health Protection of Operators
  • Protection of the Environment
  • Technical performance


BLASTANE range HSE benefits :

  • ANFO formulations are odorless
  • High purity products, less toxic smokes during explosion (no sulphur oxide SOx, less oxide NOx).
  • Safer products for workers and the environment: Very low aromatic content (0,03%), no benzene (1 ppm).
  • Not classified CMR (Carcinogenic, Mutagenic, Reprotoxic) according to the international system of classification of labeling and packaging of chemicals (GHS) and the regulation CLP in Europe (1272 / 2008 / EC)
  • BLASTANE products are classified as “easily biodegradable” according to OECD 301B or OECD 306



BLASTANE range technical benefits :

  • BLASTANE series can be used for ANFO formulations and emulsions.
  • Excellent emulsion stability due to lack of aromatic and Sulphur.
  • Aromatics and sulphur can cause crystallization and thus break the emulsion.
  • Easy to emulsify due to lck of impurities. Our pure products are easier to emulsify than standard oils and diesels.
  • Easy to pump emulsions over a wide range of temperatures.
  • Excellent shelf life of emulsions with selected surfactants.

BLASTANE range : Total products are available in a large viscosity range
