HYDROCARBON FLUIDS FOR AMMONIUM NITRATE EXPLOSIVES (ANFO)

Explosives

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

Compared to other hydrocarbon fluids (oils, fuel oils, kerosene), the FLUID range offers:
 
  • Safer products, compliant with the purity requirements of EU and US pharmacopeia
  • High purity, fewer toxic fumes, and no odor, so workers can return to work faster, thus improving productivity
  • Not classified as VOC products (according to Directive 1999/13/EC),
  • FLUID grades are classified as “readily biodegradable” according to OECD 301B tests
  • Broad viscosity range
