HIGH PURITY HYDROCARBON FLUIDS FOR AMMONIUM NITRATE EXPLOSIVES (ANFO)

Explosives

TOTAL has developed a range of hydrocarbon fluids for Ammonium Nitrate Explosives (ANFO and emulsions), called BLASTANE.

Compared to other hydrocarbon fluids (oils, fuel oils, kerosene), the BLASTANE range offers several benefits:

Human health and environment :

  • ANFO formulations are odorless
  • BLASTANE products are classified as “readily biodegradable” according to OECD 301B or OECD 306.
  • High purity products with a very low aromatics content (<0,03%) and benzene (<1ppm).
  • Not classified CMR (Carcinogenic, Mutagène, Reprotoxique) according to the international system of classification of labeling and packaging of chemicals (GHS) and the regulation CLP in Europe (1272 / 2008 / EC).

Technique :

  • Easy to emulsify
  • Excellent stabiliy of emulsion
  • Broad viscosity range available
