Bulk emulsion explosives have been used in civil tunnelling for more than a decade and are steadily being
introduced to mining operations in Australia. The advantages of bulk emulsions in wet environments are well
documented, however, an increasing number of ‘dry’ mining operations in Australia have adopted bulk
emulsion systems. The elimination of packaged products is a key economic and safety benefit, while the
programmable logic controller (PLC) controlled delivery systems delivers accurate explosive quantities at
safer pressures than traditional ammonium nitrate and fuel oil (ANFO) systems. This paper details the
DynoMiner™ Delivery Systems and TITAN® 7000 bulk emulsion explosives available from Dyno Nobel Asia
Pacific, the second largest explosives supplier in Australia.
