Facilities

TESTING FACILITIES AVAILABLE FOR ENSURING THE BEST QUALITY AND SAFETY OF DETONATORS
The quality ensuring tests are carried out at three stages:

1. Input raw materials for processing the detonators
2. In Process Tests during the manufacture of detonators
3. Testing procedures on the finished product - detonators

Equipment

Advantage

1. Drop Test

Drop Testing
equipment
 

It ensures the proper filling of explosive and its adherence in the detonator shell

2. Shake Test

Shake test apparatus

It simulates the transporting goods in the carriers and ensures safety and reliable initiation of detonators

3. X-ray Test

X-ray machine

It physically takes a picture of explosive inside the shell to ensure the proper crimping of shell and filling of explosive.

4. Safety fuse Test

Safety fuse crimping machine

It ensures initiation capability of primary explosive in the field conditions.

5, Sand Bomb Test

Sand Bomb Equipment

It physically verifies the strength and side brisance of detonator

6.Snatch Test

Snatch Test equipment

It ensures reliable crimping and good soldering strength of lead wire to the fuse heads in the detonators and ensures safe handling to the end users.

7.Underwater Test

Under water equipment

It ensures the reliable initiation of detonators in watery holes and hydrostatic pressures in the holes or under water applications

8. No fire current Test

Constant current meters

It ensures the no fire current capability of electric detonators for stray currents and leakage currents

9. Impulse Test

Impulse Test equipment

It ensures the limits of energy for reliable initiation and non initiation of electric detonators

10. Single firing current Test

Constant impulse current equipment Digital Ohm meters

It indicates the minimum firing current for a single electric detonator

11. Series firing Tests

Constant current equipment
Digital Ohm meters
 

It ensures the reliable initiation of detonators in the series firing in the field and the required blasting machine.

12. Lead Plate Test

Lead Plates

It confirms the strength of detonator in delivering the expected energy when fired.

13. Delay time Test

Delay firing Machines Delay time measuring meters

It ensures the required delay timings of the delay detonators

14. Fragment Test
