Digitising the blasting process - Aggregate Research

31/01/2020  Operators can then derive additional value from blasting practices, enabling opportunities through pattern expansion, steeper pit slopes, grade engineering and improved mine-to-mill practices such as fragmentation analysis. Better fragmentation has been linked to a shovel improvement of more than 9%. Achieving optimal and consistent fragmentation improves ‘digability’ through easier handling

Best practices: Drilling and blasting : Pit Quarry

07/12/2015  Blasting contractors should lay out the drill pattern based on a surveyed profile of the face. At a minimum, a profile survey should be done after drilling and before loading so that the proper explosive load can be determined for each blast hole based on the survey and drill log. A best practice would be to profile both before and after drilling. The post drilling survey will indicate how well the blast design was implemented. Measurement before and after each blast

Waterjet and wet abrasive blast cleaning methods

Wet abrasive blasting: A dual-component approach. Wet abrasive blast cleaning (known as WAB) is a generic description of systems that clean, prepare or cut surfaces by delivering water, compressed air and abrasive material. In some systems, water and air are the primary actors with abrasives added in. In others, abrasives and air are the primary actors with water added in.

Blasting is necessary to break rock from the ground, prior to it being taken for processing. In the early days of aggregate quarrying, explosives were not used particularly scientifically although some attempts were made to optimise use to minimise cost and maximise output. In most cases, high explosives would be detonated instantaneously — either packed into near vertical drill holes or ...

5 Aggregate Production - in

After primary crushing/reduction the resulting aggregate generally is placed in a large "surge" pile where the aggregate may be fed into the secondary operation whenever convenient. Care is always taken when building up and loading out surge piles, as this step may be a major source of segregation of material going to the secondary plant. Variation at this point may a ffect both mineral quality and gradation.
